Nutrition therapy is an important key in restoring healthy eating habits. At Duke Center for Eating Disorders, we have dietitians on hand to help assess your eating habits and design a program tailored to your specific needs.
An initial one-on-one evaluation with a registered dietitian is recommended for most individuals entering our program. The dietitian performs a thorough assessment of current food intake and recommends changes, as needed, in the form of a meal plan.
The meal plan works to establish healthy and balanced nutrition, while taking into account individual preferences for foods, scheduling needs, metabolic needs, and personal preference.
The dietitian and client develop a collaborative relationship through regular meetings and may engage in exercises that help normalize eating behaviors, thus leading to healthier relationships with food. The dietitian understands the relationship between food and emotions and works to help each person reach a stable and healthy weight.
