Nutrition is the branch of health science that specializes in understanding how specific foods affect the health and wellbeing of the body. Licensed dietitians are nutrition experts that can help you to look at your diet to determine which foods will be best for reaching your fertility and weight management goals in a safe and timely manner.
Dietitians approach food selection as a form of medicine, where each item we eat is seen as possessing distinct qualities that work together, holistically, in the body.
Therefore, choosing the diet that is healthiest for you will be a collaborative effort between you and your dietitian, and will involve careful selection of food ingredients along with proper cooking strategies.
Nutrition cannot be minimized into a simple trend or fad that comes and goes with changing opinion.
Dietitians are specially educated and certified to understand your nutritional and weight management needs from a medical perspective. They understand that certain combinations of foods may be good for one body type, but harmful to another.
