It is important to work with both your doctor and a registered dietitian to regain healthy weight. A registered dietitian will assess your nutritional status by performing a complete nutritional assessment on you. From the assessment, the registered dietitian will develop a meal plan that is adequate for your nutritional needs and health goals. During or before the appointment, the registered dietitian will collect a food recall from you (1 week, 3 days or 24 hours) to get a better idea of your typical caloric intake, eating habits and food preferences.
