How can I see a dietitian for eating healthier or weight management?

Nutrition counseling services are available at several BJC facilities including:

BJC dietitians also can be located by calling Help For Your Health at 314.747.7234.

If you live outside the BJC HealthCare service area, you can find a nearby registered dietitian at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics website.

In the meantime, make sure you are eating at least three meals a day. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains in your diet. Limit sweets and high-fat snacks, such as potato chips and ice cream. Eat lower fat meats and lower fat dairy products. Watch portion size and check labels. Review the USDA's Choose My Plate website, as it can give you information on portion size and appropriate servings.

Exercise also is an important component of any weight loss/maintenance plan.
