My goal is to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed choice.
I am a member of the National Weight Control Registry. The purpose of the registry is to encourage participation by people who have lost weight but who are concerned about their weight.
I am a registered dietitian. Dietitians provide health care advice and education to people about healthy eating and lifestyle options. They provide nutrition education to promote healthier diets and eating habits. Dietitians have training in a wide variety of areas, including food, health, and nutrition, physical activity, and family, health, and environment. Their education is supported by continuing education, and their training includes continuing education classes, professional development, and continuing education credits. In addition to providing education, dietitians work with clients to promote their health and weight loss, to help them create a plan of action, and to offer services for managing their weight loss. They help people find and maintain weight loss in a manner that works for them. Dietitians also provide assistance to clients with food, exercise, and exercise programming. In addition, dietitians help clients with their health-related concerns, including medication and diet planning. As part of the primary care, dietitians are frequently responsible for counseling patients about their health and the role diet plays in their lives.
