The Desert Dietitians offer the expert, personalized nutrition services you need to feel your best. Our mission is to empower people with chronic diseases to improve their health while enhancing
their relationship with food.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Every person has unique nutrition needs. Our patient's unique needs will be thoroughly evaluated so an individualized approach can be taken. Our Registered Dietitian Nutritionists use only evidence based guidelines. No gimmicks. No fad diets. Only facts.
Following restrictive diets or cutting out certain foods can cause cravings to become intense and lead to overeating and guilt. Eating balanced meals (even sweets and treats), is a more maintainable lifestyle.
Research shows that health can be impaired by how many hours we spend sitting each day. "Informal" physical activity such as standing up and walking around throughout the day can be just as important as aerobic exercise and strength training.
Mindful eating doesn't mean you have to cut out your favorite dessert. It means controlling portions and listening to your body's natural hunger and satiety cues. It takes about 15-20 minutes for our bodies to feel full, so try savoring every bite.
Adequate sleep is important for regulating important hormones. Without adequate rest, your hungry hormone (ghrelin) goes up and your full hormone (leptin) goes down. This may cause over eating and weight gain.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
Our Registered Dietitian Nutritionists will review your medical information so that we can provide you with expert medical nutrition therapy. Medical information reviewed may include diagnoses, past medical history, laboratory values, medications, and diet history.
