Hi! I’m Rita Smith, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes
Educator. I’ve been working in the field of nutrition and disease
prevention for over 30 years, and currently work at Martha Jefferson
Hospital in Charlottesville, VA. Each week I provide nutrition
counseling to clients who have a variety of disorders or diseases
including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, celiac
disease, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroparesis, and weight management.
For these folks, their food choices can help them manage their health
Nutrition is ever-changing and can even be confusing. Through my
weekly blog, I will make sense of some of the current nutrition topics,
provide reasonable, healthy-eating tips for you and your family, and
introduce you to some healthy new products on the supermarket shelves.
Best wishes to all my readers for eating well to be well.
