Who can benefit from nutrition counseling?
People seek guidance from a registered dietitian for many reasons. Most individuals are concerned with disease prevention, athletic performance enhancement, gastrointestinal disturbances, or feeding concerns with children, while others are trying to manage their medical conditions with food and meal planning. Because it can be difficult to figure out which foods make up a healthy diet, registered dietitians are experts at creating plans that meet your individual health needs and goals.
How do you find a registered dietitian?
Great, you found out that your insurance covers nutritional counseling. Your next step will be to find a dietitian that accepts your insurance.
