For Sound Nutrition Information

The best and most knowledgeable health care professional to seek out for sound nutrition information is a registered dietitian. A registered dietitian is ready, willing, and able to provide a custom-designed lifelong eating plan just for you.

Need help lowering your cholesterol? You've come to the right place if you picked a registered dietitian. Sound science-based information is what you get whether you have a cholesterol problem; weight problem; high blood pressure; or just want to eat more healthfully.

Registered dietitians separate facts from fads, and they translate the latest scientific breakthroughs into information you can use. RDs evaluate all aspects of your life: what you’re currently eating; your exercise level; your daily schedule; and medical history. An RD develops a plan that gets you where you want to be.

Whether you're seeking counseling on your own or follow up from a doctor's referral, make the most of your time with a qualified nutrition professional.

Some tips to know when consulting a registered dietitian:

bulletHave a medical check-up first
bulletShare your goals
bulletForget miracles or magic bullets
bulletTell them about dietary supplements you're taking -- if any
bulletBe prepared to answer medication, diet and food related questions
bulletFor weight counseling or sports nutrition, expect to have your weight and body composition checked
bulletAsk for clarification
bulletBe specific with your questions
bulletKeep careful eating records -- if you're asked
bulletInvolve your family
bulletFollow up as advised
bulletStick with it!

Everyone has a different lifestyle, so it's important to work with an individual to develop a plan suited for their life. That's the benefit of seeing a registered dietitian.

With nearly 70,000 members, the Chicago-based American Dietetic Association is the world’s largest organization of food and nutrition professionals. ADA serves the public by promoting optimal nutrition and well-being for all people by advocating for its members.
