Looking for healthier alternatives and important tips to keep yourself happy and healthy? Build up a routine and plan you can stick to all year long, with advice from our Registered Dietitian!  Whether you want to lose weight, eat healthier, get rid of gastrointestinal symptoms or improve your health profile, Mireille is here to help! But first, let’s start with the basics…



What is a Dietitian?

A dietitian is a health care professional that provides evidence-based nutritional advice. That means they use what’s been proven to work….getting you on track to a healthier you! A dietitian is a university graduate with a scientific degree, specializing in foods and nutrition.

May be you’ve heard different titles? They can be referred to as Registered Dietitians (RD), Professional Dietitians (P.Dt) or Nutritionists in Quebec, and are qualified to develop and manage nutritional programs to help improve your overall health.

Why a Good Diet?

There are numerous reasons why a healthy diet is good for you but here are our top 4!

  1. Disease Prevention: A diet focused on reducing saturated and trans fats and increasing fiber and antioxidant intake, will help reduce your chances of developing chronic diseases. It’s never too early to think about prevention!


  1. Reduced Stress: Nutrition and stress have always been linked. If you have a healthy, balanced diet, you will be able to cope better with the everyday stress that life throws your way! Foods with high vitamin and mineral levels can help to reduce stress levels…others like tea, coffee and alcohol, especially when taken in excess, can aggravate that stress.


  1. Immune System: Following proper nutritional guidelines is one of the best ways to keeping your immune system strong and healthy. When you’re eating right, it allows your body to produce the correct amount of white blood cells helping your body to fight off sickness more effectively.


  1. Better Sleep: We all know the merits of getting a good night’s sleep. Proper nutrition means improved intestinal health, and decreased stress, both of which can contribute to feeling more rested and energized.
