Adrienne Aldous, Ph.D., R.D.
The Innovative Nutritionist provides nutritional advice and support for:
- weight loss,
- sports nutrition,
- eating disorders,
- cardiovascular disease,
- food allergies,
- GI disorders,
- post bariatric surgical consultation, and
- anyone seeking advice in finding ways to feel better through their diet.
Innovation means thinking of ways to make things better, then implementing and monitoring changes and re-evaluating outcomes. This innovative spirit helps each of my clients find the information and motivation they need to obtain the diet outcome they are seeking. I offer medically proven nutrition information and consultation services for clients needing nutritional advice and support for weight loss, sports nutrition, eating disorders, vegetarianism, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, food allergies, GI disorders, gout, post bariatric surgical consultation and anyone seeking advice in finding ways to feel better through nutrition.
My business model is to constantly seek new ways to serve clients, and improve the way I deliver my services. Whether you are an elite athlete looking for a competitive edge or a diabetic struggling to get blood sugar under control, I can work with you to solve your unique problem. New nutritional research findings are published daily in professional journals and it takes a skilled Registered Dietitian to be able to interpret these findings and share them with clients in a way they find actionable. Information about food and nutrition available through the internet and friends is often not sound and is primarily intended to suggest the need to purchase certain products. At best, much of this information results in wasted money, and at worst produces negative health outcomes.
