What Can an RDN Do For You?

While many health professionals can help suggest healthier foods or strategies for better health, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) can help you set a plan for meeting those health goals. Whether you’re focused on weight loss, improving heart health, navigating eating after bariatric surgery, dealing with an adolescent eating disorder, or perhaps dealing with a digestive disorder like acid reflux or a food allergy, or even to improve energy levels, we can help!

A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist can help:

Customize recommendations for you: A RD has special skills and training to help you develop a nutrition program that specifically meets your needs – whether that’s a health and fitness goal, weight loss, health optimization, or medical condition treatment. While tools like MyPlate.gov can offer a general idea of what to eat, and there are a variety of apps to track meals and calories like MyFitnessPal, a RD can help you put an ideal plan into action and show you other options.

Provide a safe approach: Fad diets can help you drop weight fast, but the weight often creeps back on while possibly putting your health at risk. A RD will develop a safe nutrition plan to meet your goals while optimizing overall nutrition and health. We will also keep you up to date with the latest research and recommendations of what really works versus what is risky or unproven. This is especially important for individuals struggling with obesity, diabetes, chronic disease, or very restrictive eating practices such as eating disorders, food allergies, or serious health conditions.

Answer many questions: Want to know if a particular supplement may be worth trying? What are the fruits or vegetables highest in fiber? Or perhaps you’re curious if there are any food-drug interactions with the new medicine your doctor just prescribed? A RD can work closely with the other health professionals involved to help answer some of the tough questions and make sure that a nutrition plan will meet your specific needs.

Build motivation: There’s nothing like having a nutrition expert holding you accountable! A RD can help you stay motivated, troubleshoot challenges and barriers, and help you get back on track.
