Why People See a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Registered dietitians are experts in food, nutrition as well as the role of nutrients in promoting health. They advise people on optimizing intake in order to lead a healthy lifestyle or to achieve a specific health-related goal.

For those with a medical condition, medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is an evidence-based treatment plan to prevent or manage your health condition with a compressive and individualized program that includes medical nutrition education, a personalized meal plan that incorporates simplicity and flexibility, along with recommendations for specific foods and patterns of food choices to match your unique health needs. MNT is an essential part of your health care, enabling you to optimize your health and well-being.

For those with a weight problem, a registered dietitian nutritionist emphasizes the importance of adopting life-long habits conducive to weight management and health promotion rather than temporary measures for acute weight loss.  A sustainable plan rather than a one-size-fits-all approach must consist of a comprehensive program that includes education, meal planning and behavioral change.
