Dietitians of Palm Valley
Dietitians of Palm Valley is a nutrition private practice (team of registered dietitians) and the official Dietitians for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Although they are dietitians, they are definitely human too…and far from perfect! Here is a note from Sammy Previte, Registered Dietitian & Co-Owner of Dietitians of Palm Valley:
“I have gone through stages in my life where I felt like food controlled me. I had tried every diet and NOTHING worked. I thought I was “being good” Monday through Friday by eating less and working out more. I would give myself a “get out of jail free” card on the weekends by indulging in foods I would restrict during the week. I would cut out specific food groups (cough cough…carbs) thinking that if I just ate less of something then the scale would go down and all my problems would go away…until Monday came again. It was not until I started looking at food as a fuel source and learning how to nourish my body that I was able to feel comfortable in my own skin, improve digestion, and live a happier life. I gave up dieting forever (ironic that I am a DIETitian) and I encourage all of my clients to do the same.”
Dietitians of Palm Valley offers one-on-one individualized counseling, grocery store tours, online nutrition courses, and more!
