Nutritionist

My daughter and I saw a nutritionist for her eating disorder today and we left feeling underwhelmed. The nutritionist seemed very much like a therapist and my daughter is already seeing a therapist for her eating disorders. We were both expecting more of a clear plan on what she should be eating to restore a healthy weight. Does anyone have any experience with nutritionist and what role they provide.

Shop around

Maybe the ED therapist has some other nutritionists to recommend? Nutritionists are like therapists, won't always mesh with them and have to shop around for one you like. My friend tried out 3 different nutritionists before she found one that she liked. t couldn't hurt to let the nutritionist know that you would like to hear a plan for restoring a healthy weight
