The field of dietetics is rapidly changing.
New information is often emerging on how to best manage diet. Additionally, dietary trends are changing with a lot of incorrect information circulating which can be difficult for our patients to navigate. It is crucial that we stay current on all of the changes, as it is our responsibility to help our patients translate science into action.
As dietitians, we work with patients and clients to change behaviors that are a part of their daily lives and this is not always an easy task! Remember though, if the changes that our patients and clients were trying to make were easy they wouldn’t be coming to us! While our jobs center on getting others to change their behaviors, some of us may struggle with change within our personal lives because of perceived lack of time for activities, such as self-reflection and care. We help others change, but we acknowledge, recognize, and accept that change is hard for everyone. If this blog speaks to you from both a professional and personal standpoint, then we have an opportunity for you that you won’t want to pass up!
