Nutrition is key to living a healthy lifestyle, but knowing what, how, and when to eat can be frustrating and confusing. Popular fad diets seen online or on TV often seem like an easy solution, but a personalized diet plan made just for you has maximum potential for success. A registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) can help you understand healthy eating and work with you to develop a safe and realistic eating plan that you can stick with. Dietitians are trained experts in the science of nutrition and can advise others on healthy eating. All RDNs have a four-year degree, have completed an extensive program of practice, and have passed a registration exam. Most dietitians keep up-to-date on their food and nutrition knowledge through ongoing professional education programs. Below are some common ways an RDN can assist you.
- Managing a chronic disease
- Considering or have had gastric bypass surgery
- Digestive problems
- Pregnancy and postpartum
- Teens with food and eating issues
- Gaining or losing weight
- Caring for an aging relative
