Did you know that registered dietitians are covered by our Health Spending Account at Dal? Dietitians can provide tailored advice and information to help you navigate the challenges you may face in living a healthy life.
I was recently diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and the food sensitivities that go along with it. I began looking for a dietitian to help me with meal planning when I discovered Simply For Life (SFL). I thought it was just a weight loss clinic, but SFL consultants are all registered dietitians who can help with food-related illness as well.
I have been meeting with an SFL dietitian once a week for three months. She is very knowledgeable about IBS and has lots of delicious recipes that work with my food sensitivities. She taught me how to pair foods to balance my blood sugar and get the nutrients I need to maintain energy throughout the day and sleep well.
For the first time in years, I have the energy to enjoy the activities I had given up when I was sick, like hiking, running, yoga and team sports. My mood has improved and I have a clear head. I am also slowly losing weight and people are telling me that my skin and hair look healthier. Most importantly, I’m happy and healthy again.
