WHY SEE LILA?
Since 2000, I have been helping clients to meet and often exceed their nutrition, health and fitness goals! As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), I am qualified to assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems: from complicated medical issues to the average healthy person wanting to get healthier.
Together we will work on setting goals for a healthier YOU!
Once clients begin to understand themselves – especially their stressors, strengths, weaknesses, and food triggers – the nutrition and exercise pieces start to fall into place.
I will guide you with the support & tools to create the necessary framework to allow you to make significant life changes. You will learn to understand the importance of high-quality NUTRITION, HEALTHY HABITS, and regular physical activity that will lead you to:
☆ MORE energy
☆ IMPROVED mood
☆ Less anxiety
☆ REDUCED stress
☆ BETTER digestion
☆ Less inflammation
☆ Improved blood sugar and blood pressure control
☆ More restful sleep
☆ ENHANCED mood
☆ Weight loss
Working together, I will develop a plan tailored just for you, taking the guesswork out of being fit & healthy!
This includes a holistic assessment of your goals, food preferences, schedule, family, your level of fitness, and any medical conditions that may exist. Each plan is adaptive as your lifestyle improves and new ideas emerge along the way.
What is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist?
Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN's) are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems. Uniquely, registered dietitians use the most up to date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease, which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices. As professionals, we take the whole person into account, realizing that every person and situation is unique in and of itself.
Please keep in mind that anyone can call themselves a “nutritionist” but to call yourself a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, you must have met the following criteria:
1) Completed an academic undergraduate program that meets the requirements set forth by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (ADN).
2) Completed pre-professional training in an approved internship program.
3) Successfully completed and passed the Registration Examination for Dietetics to receive the RDN credential.
4) Maintain the proper amount (and approved) continuing education credits every 5 years to keep your RDN credential up to date and valid.
