  • I have gone to see an RD a couple of times because I have celiac disease. I was amazed at the quality teaching tactics she used to help me think about food and my choices. I also highly recommend going to see an RD. - 2/1/2014 8:07:07 AM
  • Thank you so much for this. I read this and said "Oh goodness, this is me!" This has really helped me into thinking I should make an appointment with a RD. - 9/4/2013 4:49:25 PM

  • I have Neuropathy & was told that if I lost weight maybe it would go away. Therefore, my Neuropathy Specialist referred me to a dietician. I have been seeing her for awhile now. I go about every 3 months & get weighed in & we talk. I have learned so much from her - things I have never even thought of before! She is wonderful! I agree that if you've never seen a dietician I would highly recommend it if you are someone who is trying to lose weight & want to learn more about the process & yourself! - 6/14/2013 9:50:56 AM

    Thank you for sharing your story Jenn. RDs can help with many issues indeed, but especially with disordered eating. - 6/12/2013 2:27:46 PM
  • Great points in this article! I explored the idea of becoming an RD but the schooling just won't work for me so I'm going to school to be a Health Coach. I will not have as much schooling as an RD in the science background, but will still be able to help people become healthier using coaching techniques and helping them figure out their own way. - 1/6/2013 7:01:50 PM

  • I've been fortunate to have been surrounded by a number of really smart people in my weigh loss journey, but I have used so many of the tips and skills from my RD. She is a saint!! - 7/30/2012 9:29:59 AM

    how do you know if a certain RD wont actually make your condition worse? That is what I am worried about. - 5/9/2012 8:05:47 PM
  • I wish I had known this when I went to see a dietician. I went along and was very discouraged to be talking with an excessively thin and disapproving person who made no attempt to help me, her approach was to tell me stuff I already knew, not to help me to incorporate new ways of thinking and acting around food. If I had known I might find a dietitian such as you describe, I would have persisted. - 8/17/2011 4:20:21 PM

    Excellent advise - when I think of all the hours I have spent beating myself up over food - my weight is not the most important thing any more. Balance and being happy and content - is. - 7/16/2011 2:16:51 PM
  • Very interesting article. I did meet with an RD after I started SP and she was so impressed with the way our Nutrition Trackers work, she took info from me so she could recommend SP to her clients. She just told me to keep up the good work. - 5/20/2011 10:01:01 PM
  • If you have a HY VEE near you they have RD for free or a very small cost . They have diabetic classes and many others. Good article. - 5/17/2011 10:00:05 AM
