Why you should see an Accredited Pracising Dietitian

Nutritionists are able to interpret the interactions of nutrients and chemicals in foods in order to determine the interaction they will have with the human body. This includes what changes are made to foods after they are heated and interactions between foods once they enter your system. Nutrition is a major part of everyone’s lives. The expression “you are what you eat” becomes vitally important in reaching your health goals and nutritionists are trained to develop individual nutrition plans for their patients.
