According to the American Dietetic Association, 67 percent of Americans obtain nutrition information from television, followed closely by magazines and the internet. The concern is that most Americans are receiving their nutrition information from unreliable sources and therefore are more likely to set unachievable and unhealthy goals. The diet industry is worth more than 60 billion dollars, and with an ever-growing obesity epidemic, it is safe to say the latest fad diet is unlikely to help your employees eat healthier and lose weight. The best way to help your employees meet their nutrition and weight loss goals is through the guidance of a registered dietitian (RD). A registered dietitian is a food and nutrition expert who has met both academic and professional requirements.

Setting a goal to eat healthier or to lose weight is the first step towards behavior change, but often individuals do not know how to set a healthy, achievable plan to meet their goals. Valley Preferred’s BeneFITTM onsite nutrition programs, led by a registered dietitian, will provide information and practical tools to help your employees set and reach their nutrition goals and get maximum benefit from the foods they eat.
