"It is pretty much impossible to write about Adriana in a short paragraph. The first time I met Adriana I was 20 years old. I was battling with an eating disorder that was consuming every aspect of my life. Now, here I am, 23 years old with a clearer mind, more reasonable way of thinking, and I have found a way to rationalize the black and white thinking that used to be a huge part of my life. Breaking free from an eating disorder is not an easy thing to do. It requires courage, hope, positivity, and the power to push yourself in ways you probably think are impossible. All of these things require a great treatment team and support team, and I can say with 100% honesty that Adriana is a huuuuuge part of that support for me. Adriana is the most genuine, kind hearted person I know and has helped me to grow in so many ways. She has provided me with positivity on some of my hardest days, encouraged me to always see the light at the end of the tunnel, and has shown me what it feels like to be able to trust someone. She's they type of person who is truly happy for you happiness, and most importantly she cares. Through an eating disorder, two heart surgeries, and many, many breakdowns, Adriana has been that voice of positivity that I needed so much. Words really an't express how amazing she is at what she does. She's an unbelievable nutritionist and extraordinary person." - Brittany
Nutritionist vs Registered Dietitian?
Many people mistakenly use the terms “dietitian” and “nutritionist” interchangeably. Although these two professions are undoubtedly related, they maintain distinctive qualities. The biggest difference between dietitians and nutritionists lies in the legal restrictions that each title carries. Only nutritionists that become registered with Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) may legally declare themselves as dietitians or more precisely, registered dietitians (RDs).
