Is she going to tell me not to eat my favorite foods? Do I need to be an athlete to work with Cristina?

mango1Cristina will conduct a complete nutrition assessment and provide you with a diet plan and specific food subsitutions that will help you achieve your goals. Cristina knows how to work your favorite foods into your plan and makes eating better fit into your lifestyle, yes even donuts.   You will leave feeling empowered, motivated and confident that you will be successful.  If you purchase a meal plan or one of the Nutrition Packages, then you will also have a sample meal plan to get you started on your new way of healthy eating.  

No, you don't need to be an athlete or to be doing any exercise to work with Cristina.  She works with kids and adults who just want to eat better to feel better.  Get started today!

Cristina has a balanced approach to food and nutrition where moderation is key.  She works with your food preferences and lifestyle to make practical meal suggestions, and she will help you make lifestyle changes that are sustainable and will help you reach your performance and body comp goals. She is skilled at helps you overcome emotional eating and improve your relationship with food.  

Do you do tests or measurements?

unnamedDietitians don't usually do blood tests or measurements.  If at any point in your nutrition consultation the dietitian suspects you may be low in a nutrient or would benefit from a medical test, she will direct you to see your doctor with the information that will help in your diagnosis.   You can request that your nutrition assessment is sent to your doctor to improve your medical care. 

Dietitians know that your worth is more than your weight and that feeling better cannot be measured by a scale, so we don't necessarily measure or weigh our clients.  

If you are results driven, have a body comp goal and really want to measure your results, you can have a DEXA scan done at the location listed below.  Remember to share your DEXA report with the dietitian to help in building  your meal plan.

RD versus Nutritionist?

deree1Registered Dietitians have completed a 4 year university degree, a one year internship and a nationwide exam. We are trained to work in the treatment and prevention of disease using evidence-based treatment plans and are regulated under the Health Professionals Act.

Anyone can call themselves a Nutritionist, it is an unregulated term in Canada and these individuals have no set qualifications or nutrition education. Registered Holistic NutritionistTM are individuals trained in a 1 year program, they are not regulated by a governing body and they are not clinically trained to treat health conditions.

You can check whether someone is a qualified nutrition professional by contacting Dietitians of Canada or BC College of Dietitians to obtain a list of Registered Dietitians in your area.
