Should you see a dietitian? Plus, a $150 President's Choice gift card giveaway!

Have you ever thought about seeing a dietitian? I have. Though I consider myself a pretty health eater, I know there's always room for improvement. According to our article Are you thinking about seeing a dietitian?, dietitians have "specialized training in the nutritional management of clinical conditions, as well as in health promotion and disease prevention, they are able to offer you advice on healthy food choices, common diet pitfalls and how you can maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle." [caption id="attachment_2536" align="aligncenter" width="282" caption="There are some days when I wish I had a dietitian living in my house!"] [/caption] A few things dietitians do you may find helpful: • They can help you manage health problems • They can teach you how to implement healthy eating habits in your life • They can help with your confusion surrounding what's healthy in the grocery store and food court, and what isn't • They can help you come up with tactics on eating health in sticky situations (think at a restaurant, at Easter dinner or on vacation) • They can help you figure out a long-term solution for weight loss And, I'm also going to share some other exciting news for you. Loblaw stores across Canada are now offering an in-store access to a dietitian, and the service is free of charge. You don't even need to book an appointment, but before you head to Loblaw for your grocery shopping, call ahead and make sure a dietitian will be at the store when you’re planning on doing your shopping. The dietitian can come on your shopping trip with you around the store and help you select the healthiest choices for you and your family. In honour of their new program, Loblaw is giving away a $150 President's Choice gift card to one lucky reader. All you have to do is leave a comment below with an answer to this question: If you could change one thing about your diet, what would it be? I'll announce the winner of the gift card here on Wednesday, April 4.
