maryhartleyRDservices and to schedule an appointment, visit my website AskMaryRD.com. I write a blog several days a week that will, hopefully, shape your ideas about what to eat and how to think about food and nutrition in America today. To view my actual job history, please visit my LinkedIn page.

When it comes to weight control and eating in general, I am committed to a flexible, realistic, and personal approach. I do not believe in fad diets or unnecessary diet pills. I do believe in making informed choices based on your values and preferences, with a clear understanding of the consequences, for better or for worse. Throughout my career, I have used a "Non-Diet Approach" to weight control, which emphasizes appetite regulation and learning to solve emotional problems without using food. For medical problems that require a therapeutic diet, I teach my patients how to choose specific foods in the correct amounts for their optimal health. I nutritious, well-prepared food and physical activity performed in the total health.

In addition to my clinical practice, I provide services as a brand ambassador, social marketing expert, speaker, writer, digital content adviser, and media personality. I focus on special projects, products and services in the areas of food and nutrition and related IT." /> Mary Hartley, RD, MPH Dietitian, Active Health Library, and Nutritionist
