Sometimes people are a little nervous when they meet with me for the first time because they don’t know what to expect.
Sometimes people think I will judge them or suggest they go on a calorie restricted “diet”.
I get that - the word “diet” is in my professional title.
But let’s talk about what I DON’T do as a dietitian:
I don’t suggest strict food plans or restrictive diets.
I don’t suggest calorie restriction or calorie counting.
I don’t offer one-size-fits-all approaches to everyone.
I don’t judge or shame people for their food intake.
What I DO is:
Listen to understand what is happening for food right now in your life
Identify what YOUR goals are for your food and health
Offer suggestions on shifts and tweaks
Work with you to come up with a unique plan that works for you and your life
Nutrition plays a big role in your health and wellness! It’s also one area of life that is really challenging with parenting young kids.
Have you met with a dietitian before? How was that experience for you?
