Registered Dietitian

People often seek the services of a Registered Dietitian (RD)when they want or need to lose weight. But a Registered Dietitian is really an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to understand the relationship between food and optimal health. Dietitians are highly-trained experts in food, nutrition, and healthy living. They have an in-depth understanding of the ways that what we eat can impact all aspects of the way we feel.

The team of RDs at The Clinic YYC has a strong belief in creating, teaching, and supporting patients through a healthy relationship with food instead of focusing on weight loss as the main objective. This healthy relationship with the way we nourish our bodies builds habits that can help us sustain optimal health throughout our lives.
