What is a Registered Dietitian
A registered dietitian (RD) has completed education and training to specialize in a wide variety of fields, including sport nutrition, gerontological nutrition, pediatric nutrition and renal nutrition. He or she may work in private practice, in a nursing home, school, hospital or food service facility. In treating patients a dietitian can also educate them on meal planning, lowering cholesterol, nutritional requirements for people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and anorexia and bulimia recovery.

Diets and Weight Loss
Restrictive diets are not doomed to fail in the absence of a complementary exercise program.
In terms of a healthy lifestyle you definitely want a good nutrition plan and exercise program. But when it comes to your weight, your body weight is actually determined by 80 percent diet, 10 percent exercise and 10 percent genetics.
Exercise is extremely important for conditioning and body composition, but you can achieve a healthy weight with diet.
If you’d like more information on how nutrition and exercise can fit into your lifestyle, contact a local dietitian or visit a local health center with exercise specialists or qualified personal trainers. Featured Speaker on Smart Food Now
