What to expect in a 1:1 nutrition counseling session with an R.D.

Expect to do a lot of talking in an initial session. In fact, I consider a good first meeting one in which my client talks more than I do!

Sure, I know you're anxious to get diet recommendations, but there's no way to give good ones without knowing all about YOU first.

A good R.D. doesn't use a cookie cutter, one-size-fits-all approach, so we have to get to know you. The better I know and understand how you live your life, the better my recommendations will be.

So, an initial dietitian counseling session will probably last about 1 hour and involves lots of questions:

  • lifestyle
  • food preferences
  • cooking ability/desire
  • what you usually eat
  • what you like to eat
  • what you're willing to eat

It's all important information, and it's nearly impossible to make good suggestions without the answers!

Your medical history, blood work (if available) and your personal goals should also be taken into account in order to establish - with you - an appropriate food plan.

How often should I meet with my R.D.?

It depends! I personally have clients I see once a week, once every other week, once a month, on occasion when a particular concern arises, or once in a lifetime.

I view each client as an individual with unique needs and I recommend the necessary number of sessions accordingly. But in the end it's up to you to decide!
