Registered Dietitian Blogfest

March 10, 2010 is National Registered Dietitian Day. To commemorate, Monika at InCyst Network and I are once again hosting the Registered Dietitian Blogfest. This year we asked the question, If you had one message to give, what would it be? If you are tired of information overload, I assure you that these posts will be helpful and encouraging. Maybe you will even find a new favorite blog.

  1. Thank you so much for hosting this great event!!

    I love getting to know the other RD bloggers who are out there promoting such positive messages!!

    We appreciate your work on this!

  2. Hi,

    Your blog has become a real inspiration for me. I am an aspiring dietician/mother/domestic goddess/money-maker who is stuck in a marketing degree...with plans to study for a dietetics master.

    Can you give advice to someone who knows that their heart is somewhere other than their original plan of action? Is dietetics worth it? Especially when you know it is so right for you!

  3. Rhiannon,

    I would not discard your marketing background as it is very useful as a dietitian (and rarely taught in a dietetics degree).

    Check out the posts in the dietetics category:

    My perspective is from the United States, but I recall giving some tips for someone in Australia.

    Best regards,
