Dietitians are highly trained, have to register with a medical board, and are kept accountable to a high level of ethics and continued training. Your dietitian takes you as a whole into account, nothing is one-size-fits-all. Your body type, your medical history, your family history, what medicines you are taking, your likes and dislikes.
Your life is a whole, food is not separated from the rest of your life. Your financial standing may determine how much you can spend on food. Your job might require you to travel a lot, making it easier to just eat take away food. You might be going through a stressful time at home or work, which could take your mind off healthy eating and you require food that is quick and easy to prepare. Your culture or religion might include some feasts or fasts where traditional foods are eaten that doesn't necessarily fit in with what the internet sees as healthy food. Maybe you just love chocolate and wish you could find a balance between eating for health and eating for fun, or maybe you are just tired of feeling like you are being punished every time you choose the salad...
All of this influences what your "healthy" looks like, and your dietitian can make it possible to fit healthy into your lifestyle without compromising who you are.
I am a registered dietitian, and this is my blog.
Please don't see it as anything other than a blog; general information, snippets that I find interesting, and recipes that I enjoy. It is not meant to replace individual healthcare from myself or other healthcare professionals.
