Would you benefit seeing a dietitian?

Eating healthful foods and eating well used to be easier. Food was less refined, processed and complicated. Nutrition remains an important factor for Canadians when selecting foods, with 71% rating it important according to the National Institute of Nutrition's latest survey Tracking Nutrition Trends V. Given the vast choice of foods available and the many conflicting nutrition messages, many of us are understandably confused and frustrated about what it means to eat to a healthy diet and may be tempted to just give up. But consider this:

You will eat over 82,000 meals in your lifetime!

Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food

— Hippocrates

Food and therefore nutrition is an important part of being and staying healthy. The choices you make will impact your health either in a negative or positive way; Hippocrates knew this when he said “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”. With this in mind, Dietitians are your trusted nutrition experts and can be a great ally in coaching you to reach your personal nutritional goals!

If you want to lose or gain weight, if you have an allergy or illness that restricts your food intake, if you are considering vegetarianism or want to fine tune your vegetarian diet, if you have a need for medical nutrition therapy or if you just want to eat better to improve your energy, well-being and overall health, then I can help you plan to ensure you get enough nutrients and in the proper ratio to stay healthy. This involves gaining a clear understanding of your eating habits, identifying areas of strength in your current eating patterns and areas for improvement, and setting up a specific plan, taking into account what you like to eat and your daily schedule/lifestyle.
