Healthy eating is an essential part of daily life at any age. We may need to work with a nutritionist to customize a healthy eating plan to manage a disease such as hypertension or diabetes, to encourage weight loss or maintain a healthy weight, to increase energy for sports and activities, or part of an eating disorder treatment plan.

A registered dietitian (RD) has completed education and training to specialize in a wide variety of fields, including sport nutrition, gerontological nutrition, pediatric nutrition and renal nutrition. He or she may work in private practice, in a nursing home, school, hospital or food service facility. 

 In treating patients a dietitian can also educate them on meal planning, lowering cholesterol, nutritional requirements for people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and anorexia and bulimia recovery.
