Legally, in the state of Missouri only Registered Dietitians can provide medical nutrition therapy. This makes good sense since they had to go to school for four years with a one year clinical internship, all in addition to passing a board exam. Many times, people practice outside of their medical disciplines to give nutritional advice. You can count on getting accurate and current nutrition information from our BigTime Results staff Registered Dietitian.
Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT)
Having a Registered Dietitian allows us to give you specific nutritional counseling on diagnoses, such as high cholesterol, hypertension, and diabetes. All of these diagnoses and many more have a strong nutrition correlation with disease management. Nutrition therapy may even resolve the issue.
BigTime Results’ Registered Dietitian will design a healthy eating level that creates a calorie deficit to help you lose weight through your eating. You lose weight with eating less and working out more. We are here to help you with this combination! Your individualized healthy eating plan will allow you to eat anything, but emphasize portion control and moderation in order to stay within your caloric limits. As Noah always says, the quality goes up and so does the quantity, an easy correlation. Our healthy eating plan breaks down the servings of carbohydrates, protein, and fat based on the latest American Dietetic Association (ADA) recommendations. We even show you how to count and include calories from alcoholic beverages if you are unable to eliminate them completely
We have another healthy eating plan for weight management clients that focuses on preparation and convenient food options. We will evaluate the best option for you to be successful.
