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

Yes, folks, there a difference between smoothies and juicing. Smoothies require a blender to mix ingredients into a drinkable paste. By incorporating the entire fruit and vegetable, smoothies provide fiber along with other critical nutrients. Fiber in particular is helpful for controlling your blood sugar, keeping you full for longer, and feeding the good bacteria in your gut. The downside to fiber is that it inhibits the quick absorption of nutrients. Juicing extracts liquid from fruits and vegetables. Because juicing does not extract fiber, the liquid provides  a healthy and immediate blast of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants for your cells. Smoothies and juices have great nutritional benefits–each in their own way. Regardless of your choice, remember that a smoothie or a juice is healthiest when loaded with vegetables and contain about one serving of fruit.
