Clinical Nutrition

"You can fit all foods into any type of diet as long as you consume these foods in moderation. Forget the word 'diet' because the first three letters of diet spell die! What a person needs to do is to improve their eating habits by eating three meals a day and to include foods recommended by the USDA." - Liz Choate, RD, LD

Jackson Purchase Medical Center's dietary department is blessed with a clinical nutrition director with more than 30 years of experience. The main key to success for any dietary plan is motivation. A person must want to lose weight or improve their health in order to succeed.
