Optimal Nutrition

Your most valuable source of good nutrition isn’t dietary supplements, one special food, infomercials or the latest diet. It’s a registered dietitian. We have the education and experience to design a healthy solpadol eating plan just for you.
Talk with us. RDs provide nutrition knowledge that’s easy to stomach. You’ll learn how to eat better and smarter. You’ll have more energy, control your weight better and be a lot healthier. And, best of all, you won’t have to give up your favorite foods.

It’s easy to confuse registered dietitians with other professions. But once you learn what we as RD’s do, you’ll discover that nobody has the training or education to offer quality nutrition knowledge quite like us.

We separate nutrition facts from fads and translate the latest scientific breakthroughs into information you can actually use. When you meet with us, we’ll evaluate all aspects of your life. What you are currently easting, your exercise level, your daily schedule and medical history. We’ll determine if you are getting enough of the proper nutrients to meet your goals. We, as RDs, see what you are missing, what you are doing well and develop a plan that gets you where you want to be.

So, what does it take to be an RD?

Education, experience and patience. Aimee Mattiolo has her Bachelor of Science from the University of Arizona, and JoAnn Randazzo has her Bachelors of Science from Queens College. After our schooling, we were required to complete a supervised internship of 900 hours to be eligible to sit for registration. To become registered, we passed am extensive examination administered by the Commission on Dietetics registration. In addition, we are required to complete continuing education credits to keep us at the forefront of today’s nutrition knowledge, as well as to maintain our registration.
After meeting with us, you’ll see that our nutrition education and training is unsurpassed. While physicians, nurses, gym personal and health store staff may offer you nutrition advice, no one has the experience, education and training of an RD.

What is the healthiest investment out there?
Like most professional, registered dietitians in private practice charge by the hour or session. Our fees have been determined based on our education, experience and other factors. Before you meet with an RD, talk about costs and determine how many consultations you will need. Usually after and initial meeting, you will visit for progress reports and updates. No matter how you look at it, working with an RD is one of the smartest investments you can ever make in your health.
