Why did you decide to pursue a career in nutrition?
What is your overall philosophy toward nutrition and a healthy lifestyle?
What are your top 3 bits of nutrition advice?
1) Intuitive eating approach
2) Reasons we choose food- we like it, it benefits our health, or it helps our function
3) Emphasize the importance of how nutrition can fuel our body. As a walker, you need to fuel your body before you walk (again, it’s not just about losing weight)
What are your favorite recipes?
Is there anything else you’d like to share?
I love Walk with a Doc. Our local doctor is a driving force for our program. Wellness promoted by docs is phenomenal (people listen to their docs more than their dietitians). I also think we should stop weighing people in the clinic – this often may cause people to not seek medical care due to fear of weighing. I would love to see an individual weighed only for clinical interventions as it relates to a specific treatment such as needed for congestive heart failure for example.
