Dietitians are experts in food and nutrition. They advise people on what to eat in order to lead a healthy lifestyle or achieve a specific health-related goal.
Dietitians do the following:
- Assess clients’ health needs and diet
- Counsel clients on nutrition issues and healthy eating habits
- Develop meal plans, taking both cost and clients’ preferences/goals into account
- Example: a client with high blood pressure will learn how to use less salt in cooking, purchasing food, and dining out
- Example: a meal plan designed with limited fat and sugar to help a client lose weight
- Evaluate the effect of meal plans, and change the plans as needed
- Keep up with the latest nutritional science research
Any initial visit (in-person, phone, or e-mail) will count as a 1 hour wellness session.
Follow-ups (can include detailed meal plan)
- Detailed meal plan by itself – 1 hour wellness session
- In-person: 30 min visit (usually 4-6 weeks after initial visit) + weekly e-mails from the dietitian to check in – 1 hour wellness session
- Phone/E-mail: each phone call or e-mail will count as a 15 min follow-up, so if 4 e-mails/calls are exchanged, a 1 hour wellness session will be accumulated
