What’s It Like Working With A Dietitian Like Myself?

Have you ever visited my website to read a blog post and wondered what it might be like to work with me?

Perhaps been curious about the different types of food-related problems I help people solve?

Well, today’s article is for you.

Yes, I could just direct you to the Services page of my website, but I somehow feel that won’t quite be sufficient.

And, if I’m being honest, that page probably needs a little refresh.

The fact of the matter is that I work with such a delightfully wide array of clients that it can actually be quite challenging at times to encapsulate them in a few subheadings.

Yet, it is the great diversity of my client base that excites me most about my work and is ultimately a big part of the reason why I write as much as I do.

Allow me to explain…

The Connection Between My Work & My Writing

Not that anyone is counting, but I’ve been in business for about five years.

During that period of time I’ve published five books, written probably over a hundred blog posts and appeared on numerous websites & newspapers.

But my most rewarding accomplishment in the last half decade is all of the clients I’ve helped.

Although it may not seem abundantly apparent from a distance, my primary inspiration for writing is my clients.

They come to me with questions and concerns and put faith in me to be able to address them at a high level.

My writing, and the research involved, helps me deliver on that commitment.

And so it’s simply no coincidence that I write regularly about the most common and compelling topics of our time like intermittent fasting, cholesterol, acid reflux, PCOS, gut health, veganism,pescatarianism, soy, GMOs, organic foods, supplements, the keto diet and YES even an article on how often a person should poop.

I write these articles not only because of my appreciation for the art of the written word and my love of nutrition, but because I’m compelled to do so by the people who I work with.

I know the questions that they bring to me are the questions that are often shared by people around the world and the ones that I need to be able to respond to in the most adept and convincing manner possible.

So it’s these questions, and so many more, that really becomes the why when it comes to working with a dietitian.

But What If Your Why Is Different?

That’s the joy of it, is it not?

I feel quite certain you have at least one, if not more, unresolved questions that relate to your interaction with food and whether or not you could be doing something differently in this area to improve your quality of life, health and happiness.

Perhaps these questions are physical, like am I eating WAY too much protein? or physiological like are there really foods that can help me live longer?

Or perhaps they are mental, like how can I better utilize nutrition science to improve my mental health, or perhaps how can I change the way I think about food to improve my mental health.

Or theoretical, like will intermittent fasting improve me on a genetic level?

Or perhaps it’s all of the above and much more.

Trust me, those are the kinds of interactions I relish most.

So if you find yourself waking up each day with unanswered questions about how you can get more out of your interaction with food, stop asking these questions to yourself.

Please, ask me instead.

I am, after all, the one with the piece of kale in his suit pocket (just in case you might’ve missed it).

Oh, and for you keen readers who are wondering how I managed to get this far without actually answering the question I posed in the title of the article….

What can I say?

If you really want to know what it’s like to work with me, there’s only one way to find out.

Until then,
