Your Own Diet Plan

If you’ve tried to lose weight, you know that there are a lot of popular options out there and many seem to have their own book and product line. Lona Sandon, a registered dietitian at UT Southwestern Medical Center, says a better idea is a diet designed specifically for you by a registered dietitian.

This health professional can consider your specific needs, goals and lifestyle and craft a daily eating and exercise plan just for you. Then you won’t have to buy books, workbooks, videos and expensive prepared foods to follow a plan designed for the masses. You don’t even have to be a movie star to get a personalized diet.
