Because each registered dietitian follows a client-centred approach to nutritional counselling, customization of diet plans with meals forms an integral part of the nutrition program.
You can only reach your goals if the plan matches your food preferences, sensitivities and allergies, lifestyle, personal, health, cultural or religious restrictions, and of course, budget.
