What Is a Registered Dietitian?

Dietitians are highly qualified health practitioners who have been trained in human physiology and development, management and the health of populations. Their training has been focused on the role of proper nutrition in promoting a healthy body and mind.

 

A Dietitian provides quality advice on nutrition, food, and healthy eating. A Dietitian’s main role in private practice is to counsel and support clients to make changes in their eating habits to promote health and prevent or manage chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

 

Dietitians must be registered with Provincial Regulatory Bodies and are the only professionals who can use the titles Registered Dietitian, Professional Dietitian and Dietitian, which are protected by law. Look for the letters R.D., P.Dt. or D.Pt. after the name, indicating that the person is a registered member of the profession.

Live Healthy. Consult a Dietitian

Healthy eating is all about balance. All foods can be a part of a healthy lifestyle, and our dietitians would like to show you how! We are passionate about helping people reach their individual health or sports performance goals and we would love to make Newfoundland and Labrador a healthier province.

 

Newfoundland and Labrador earned the lowest score of all the provinces in Canada on the most recent health report card (2015), getting a D minus. A huge concern highlighted from this report is the rate of obesity in our province. Our dietitians have focused much of their time in completing extra training in the area of weight loss and have developed professional weight loss programs. Through diet and lifestyle changes, we change the statistics!

 

Additionally, our dietitians are committed to becoming among the top sports nutrition professionals in the country! Sports nutrition is becoming more popular in Canada, and our dietitians are on their way to helping Newfoundland and Labrador’s athletes perform at their best!

Sports Nutrition

What Is Sports Nutrition?

 

Whether you are striving for gold or would like to reach a personal goal, we can help! It doesn’t matter if you are an elite athlete, playing a recreational sport or being active to stay healthy; you want to perform at your best.

 

A dietitian can help you choose the optimal amount of food and the right type of foods, fluids and supplements for your specific sport. This will give you the fuel you need to be stronger, faster, and give you that extra edge! With the right food at the right time, you will perform better and recover faster, so you are ready for your next practice. We work with individual athletes or entire sports teams. We will work closely with you to tailor a program that best suits your needs!

 

A well-designed nutrition plan is often the element that is missing from an athletes training program

 

“Getting that nutritional edge is going to be what separates a player from the pack” - Gary Roberts, NHL player

Weight Loss

Metabolic Rate Testing

A Resting Metabolic Rate test measures the amount of energy required to maintain crucial life-sustaining processes – such as your heartbeat, respiration, and brain function – whilst at rest.

 

Your RMR measurement is made by analyzing the amount of oxygen your body uses and the amount of carbon dioxide your body produces.

 

This energy is expressed in calories per day, so to put it simply, an RMR test provides an indication of how many calories you burn at rest while doing nothing more than sitting in a chair.
