You may have heard diets do not work. Prescriptive, restrictive and fad diets help you lose weight quickly, but have minimal long-term success. After all, we have the word "diet" right there in the name of our profession.
Many dietitians do not like being thought of as someone who puts people on weight-loss diets. So, they have coined a new term: the nondiet dietitian. Sounds counterintuitive, right? Like a non-law lawyer or a non-nursing nurse? But it actually makes a lot of sense.
