Phone/Skype & Email Consultations

As the demand for distance-based nutrition counseling has increased, research has looked at the effectiveness of such approaches. Phone/Skype and email consultations have been shown to be useful and effective tools for providing nutrition education and promoting long-term changes. The primary benefit is that these technologies allow for a more affordable way to be in frequent contact with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) as you work toward your health goals. Studies show that continual support from and RDN over several months enhances your ability to make permanent changes.
