There is a great deal of conflicting information out there – eat this, don’t eat that – and it changes regularly. Our on-staff registered dietitian, Alia Khudhair-Gilmer, can help alleviate the confusion. Eating well does not have to be frustrating. We can help support a wide range of nutrition-related goals and conditions, including:
- Weight management
- Heart-healthy eating with a focus on lowering lipid levels
- Diabetes management
- Plant-based diets
- Digestive issues
- Prenatal and postnatal nutrition
- Child and toddler feeding
Alia’s unique approach to nutrition counselling involves implementing simple, yet meaningful changes in your life that can realistically become healthy, everyday habits. She is also a mother to three children, and understands the challenges that life throws your way that can make it difficult to eat well and exercise.
Concerned that working with a dietitian might be out of reach? Many workplace health and benefits plans reimburse for dietitian services, and these services are also both tax deductible and HST exempt.
What Is a Dietitian?
“A dietitian is a regulated health professional. To use the title Registered Dietitian (RD), dietitians must be registered with the dietetic regulatory body in the province in which they practice. Dietitians undergo comprehensive and rigorous training, both on the job and in university. Dietitians are held accountable to the highest standards of education and ethics, which means we look beyond fads and gimmicks to deliver reliable, life-changing advice.” Dietitians of Canada.
