The RD Connection
Registered dietitians are trained to help people find a healthy way of eating that they can sustain. Fad diets and starvation plans don't work in the long run, they can hurt your health, and trigger binge eating after the diet. And, if you have high cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes or other medical concerns, you need a plan that is customized according to your personal needs.
Losing weight is the national pastime. And yet more Americans are fatter than ever. They have tried the weight loss books. They have tried the weight loss plan at the mall with the prepackaged foods. They have tried the herbal supplements that say they speed up the metabolism. But these programs don't give lasting results!
A personalized plan designed for your body, for your lifestyle and tastes, is the only way to lasting weight management. If you would like food to be a pleasurable part of your life, and not the enemy that makes you fat, let us help you.
Now we have 3 ways for you to connect with a registered dietitian. You choose the way that fits your time frame, your budget, and your needs: on-line, by telephone, or face-to-face. We do not sell any supplements or special foods. We help you learn how to self-manage your weight for the rest of your life.
