What to Expect
Working with a Registered Dietitian (RD)
Mary Gross is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist; a professional who promotes health by providing reliable and innovative nutritional information and translating the latest scientific findings into practical nutritional guidance.

What is a Registered Dietitian (RD)?
The initials “RD” indicate that an individual has completed academic and experience requirements established by the Commission on Dietetic Registration, the credentialing agency for the American Dietetic Association, including a minimum of a bachelor’s degree granted by a U.S. regionally accredited college/university or equivalent, and approved pre-professional experience program. Registered Dietitians demonstrate their knowledge of food and nutrition by successfully passing a national credentialing exam and by completing professional education and development activities on an ongoing basis.

What is a Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist (LDN)?
North Carolina’s Dietetics/Nutrition Practice Act protects the public from harm by requiring all persons engaged in the practice of Dietetics and Nutrition to be licensed professionals. A “Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist” is an individual licensed in good standing in North Carolina to provide nutrition care services.

Tip Of The Month
  On vacation at an all–inclusive resort? Eating 5 grams (about 3 Hershey’s Rich Dark Kisses ) of dark chocolate 1 hour before a meal will help control your appetite. The chocolate stabilizes blood sugar and will, as a result, moderate your appetite at mealtime. An added benefit – dark chocolate contains a type of monounsaturated fat found in olive oil, as well as antioxidants and specific flavonoids that have been shown to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease.
