Nutrition & Dieting/Eating to be healthier


Hi, I am writing an article for one of my classes about how people can eat healthier to gain a healthier lifestyle and not how they have to suppress themselves from certain foods. So I was wondering if you could give me some general tips for someone who wants to eat healthier and how they could incorporate that in their meals. Maybe some initial steps to take to eat better or guidelines.

Thanks so much for your help!

As a registered dietitian (RD)I am fully qualified to accurately answer questions regarding weight loss, including those from people with health conditions requiring dietary restrictions (diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc) who want to lose weight, or who have been advised to do so by their physician.


I have been a registered dietitian for over 30 years and have a certificate in Adult Weight Management through the commission on dietetic registration at Level 1 and Level 2. I am also trained in coaching through Coach U and currently work as a diet coach to help people lose weight the healthy way, through gradual habit changes.
