A registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) is a highly-trained professional

of Nutrition and Dietetics. The Mile Bluff dietitian team members have

on the latest in nutritional science. Members of the team have certifications

Nutritional Advice Tailored to Your Tastes
When you see an RDN, you will not be subject to a “one-size-fits-all”
diet. Every person is unique, from genetics, to lifestyle, to health history.
Mile Bluff's dietitians interview clients to find out their individual
needs, favorite foods and eating and exercise habits. Only then can everyone
work together to prioritize and set realistic, achievable health goals
Chronic Disease Management
There are several conditions - such as high blood pressure, diabetes and
even cancer - that require patients to make changes in their eating habits.
Mile Bluff's dietitians can help you learn more about your dietary
restrictions, and assist you in creating a diet that incorporates all
the important nutritional markers you should be aiming for.
Food Allergy Management
Celiac disease, food allergies and other conditions, can often make diet
building a frustrating experience. Those who feel completely discouraged
by their diet often end abandoning it, which can result in long-term health
issues. Mile Bluff's dietitians will not only teach you how to read
food labels so you'll know what to look for and what to avoid, they
will also help you build a balanced diet that suits your personal tastes.
Long-Term Weight Loss Goals
Though there are numerous resources out there offering weight-loss advice,
it is only by working with a medical professional that you can be sure
your weight-loss diet will be both safe and effective. Mile Bluff's
dietitians can help you develop unique strategies to help with meal planning
and grocery shopping. They may also help you start a food journal to help
you organize your eating habits. One of the primary goals of the RDN team
is to help clients feel empowered and excited to make positive lifestyle changes.
