4 Benefits Of Working With A Dietitian

With Sally Hammer RD as your registered dietitian nutritionist, you will get:

1. Professional and Science-Based Counseling

Sally Hammer RD adheres to the code of ethics provided by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics very seriously. According to this code, dietitians are expected to practice dietetics based on scientific principles and current information; interpret controversial information without personal bias; and continuously pursue additional knowledge and skills to their practice.

When you meet with Sally, you can be sure you are getting the most up-to-date information on nutrition facts. While there may be contradicting articles on controversial topics, some articles may be ignoring a potential side-effect, or promoting a one-size-fits-all diet. Knowing that every body reacts to food differently, Sally knows how to locate, interpret, and deliver scientifically-sound research for you to understand.

2. Food Facts

The propaganda behind how food is grown, manufactured, prepared, cooked, and/or served has created mass confusion surrounding food. Furthermore, new fad diets that come and go often leave a trail of misinformation by unqualified individuals that may form a false reality for some people.

Dietitians are able to debunk myths surrounding food by providing up-to-date information on the big picture, including nutrients, calories, serving sizes, food groups, labels, marketing tactics, food ingredients, allergies, interactions and more.

3.  Motivation and Support

Beyond the scientific approach to dietetics, dietitians also provide motivation and support to their clients. Because eating is so personal and often requires behavior change, it’s useful to have a trusted and resourceful health professional to talk with that will help you celebrate, solve and/or adjust any of the many things that may occur during your journey to achieving your health goals.

4. Emotional & Behavioral Problem Solving Through Food

Dietitians not only consider the physical aspects surrounding food, they also work with personal and emotional aspects. If you find that eating healthy is too difficult in your daily schedule, Sally can help you find solutions that beat to your drum. She can provide useful resources that may assist you in reaching your full potential.

Tip of the Day

Often times we read the label and aren’t sure what we are looking at or what numbers are “good.” The best way to read a label is to first look at the serving size, which tells us the amount we would need to eat to equal the rest of the nutrients on the label. It is important to be aware of the serving size listed, because they range from 1.5 ounces for a favorite cookie to one-tenth of a pound for raw kale. Next read the Percent Daily Value on the label’s right side. The percentages in that column tell you what percentage of the recommended daily nutrients you get after eating one serving size. For example, if a serving size of your favorite snack is a whopping one pretzel, and the percent daily value for sodium is 41%, then each pretzel you eat gives you 41% of the recommended daily intake for sodium. Two pretzels gives you 82%. Three pretzels gives you 123% and so on. A convenient way to look at percent daily values is to follow the 5-20 rule; 5% or less is considered low, while 20% or more is considered high.
