Welcome to Healthy Intake, a blog all about how to make healthy eating a part of your life.
My name is Denise and I am a Registered Dietitian. I graduated from Winthrop University in South Carolina with a Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition and have completed a national exam through the Commission on Dietetic Registration, the credentialing agency of the American Dietetic Association. I have over 10 years of experience in a clinical setting with counseling patients for many types of nutritionally-related conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, pregnancy, and obesity.
On Healthy Intake, I will relay only the most accurate information about foods and their benefits. I do not believe in fad diets, excessive dietary supplementation, or quick-fixes. Nutrition is one part of an overall healthy lifestyle that includes physical activity and basic self-care.
I do, however, believe that even small changes make a difference. Too many people give up before they even get started because healthy eating seems daunting. It doesn’t have to be. Even if you cannot follow all of the advice I give, I know there are bits and pieces that can work in your life if you just give them a try.
I hope you enjoy reading Healthy Intake, and please feel free to ask questions, leave comments, or otherwise let me know how I can improve the site to make it most useful to you.
Yours in Good Health,
