Tips for Choosing a Dietitian
- Do Your Research (regarding their Nutrition Philosophy): There are so many different RD’s, with so many different approaches to food, nutrition and wellness. The most important thing I can tell you is to find a practitioner that shares your same food philosophy.
- Be Detailed With The Information You Provide: Before I had my appointment, I filled out something like an 11 page guide of paperwork, including a 3 day food diary. I was as detailed as possible with all this paperwork, sent over previous tests and went through my entire gut issue saga with her on my first session. This is key! Give all as many details as possible – down to the consistency of your poo!
