Top Dietitian related questions
A dietitian works with patients to improve their diet and help manage illnesses through the help of proper nutrition. Generally, when you work with a diet specialist, they’ll take time to understand your body’s needs, health goals, and any challenges you have regarding your diet. From here, they can design meal plans and evaluate their effects.
There are many reasons to see a dietitian, and both healthy people and those managing an illness can benefit from a diet specialist’s advice. If you have digestive complaints, want to improve your sports performance, are often sick or injured, or want to have a better relationship with food and your body, you can set up a quick appointment with a dietitian near you.
The main difference between a nutritionist and a dietitian is that nutritionists work only with healthy people, while dietitians may work with both healthy and ill patients. Because of this, you can often find a nutritionist in a fitness centre, while dietitians are primarily found in hospitals. One other difference is that nutritionists aren’t typically regulated by government bodies, while dietitians need to be registered.
There are lots of questions you can ask a dietitian, including:
- What is a healthy weight for me?
- How much should I eat, and how often?
- How can I improve my diet?
- Where is the best place to buy this food?
- Should I avoid this particular food? (e.g. sugar, gluten)
- What supplements should I take?
- How do I deal with parties or get-togethers?
- Why do I experience this discomfort or illness? (e.g. indigestion, heartburn)
Though this list may vary depending on your local dietitian’s own needs, diet specialists typically recommend (and eat!) the following:
- Greek yoghurt
- Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, kale, bok choy, cabbage)
- Whole grains
- Raw and unsalted nuts/seeds
- Baked beans
Not sure how to incorporate these ingredients into your diet? You can hire a local chef to help you cook some healthy meals using your dietitian’s recommendations!
Some freelance dietitians may be open to making online appointments. It all depends on the Tasker you hire and if you specify this in your task post! To be on the safe side, if you can’t commit to in-person appointments, look for a dietitian who does online consultations.
What do a dietitian’s services include?
Dietitians generally work with patients to help them reach their wellness goals. These can vary; for example, a healthy person may want to lose weight, or a diabetes patient may wish to manage their illness better. Your local dietitian may also work in a classroom or office setting to educate people on nourishing themselves better.
The following are what a typical dietitian can do for you:
Advising healthy clients on how to eat better
A dietitian may educate and advise healthy clients on how to improve their eating habits further. Even if a person looks and feels well, their food intake might be less than healthy. This is where a registered dietitian comes in. They can help people develop healthy eating habits, prevent illness, and stay fit.
This kind of consultation may assess the client’s health status, nutritional requirements, blood chemistry, lifestyle, and more. From here, the diet specialist may come up with meal plans or suggest healthy alternatives to some ingredients. They may also show the client how to read and understand nutrition labels and food packaging.
Helping sick patients manage their illness
Unlike nutritionists who are limited to healthy patients, a dietitian is licenced to help manage illnesses through proper food intake. Patients dealing with diabetes, cancer, obesity, HIV, and the like can benefit from a dietitian consultation.
Some dietitians even go beyond physical illnesses and deal with the psychological effects of food. If you or someone you love is struggling to have a better relationship with food, consult with a mental health dietitian near you.
Educating groups on proper nutrition
Dietitians usually don’t just deal with individuals. A number of them may provide educational talks to your school or office. If you own a company or building, your catering department or cafeteria may also benefit from a consultation with a local dietitian.
Suppose you work in a media company and need to consult with a diet specialist. In that case, you can also book a dietitian through our platform and let them know that you need them to provide information for the material you’re about to publish. Educating the public is just one way a dietitian can improve a community’s health.
Speciality dietitians for children, older adults, and athletes
Some private dietitians have their own areas of expertise. For example, some may work with young children (paediatric dietitians) or older adults (geriatric dietitians). Registered dietitians may also work with athletes to ensure their peak performance at all times. This kind of dietitian might be able to help you if you’ve just decided to live healthier by improving your diet and exercising more. Recommending general exercise is also part of a dietitian’s scope.
If you’ve been advised to improve your diet and exercise routines, you can use Airtasker to find someone to help you assemble a home gym, or have a home chef cook some healthy meals for you. Weight training not your thing? Use our platform to book a local dance class instead!
