My Dietitian, LLC Puts Health in Users' Pockets for the Holidays

Scottsdale-based My Dietitian, LLC has launched a unique campaign for the holiday season, urging that people “Give the Gift of Health”. My Dietitian gives users access to an assigned dietitian, who helps educate them and give them feedback about their food choices through interaction via their website and smartphone app.

Michael Tingey, MD, the co-founder of My Dietitian, says that by having a Registered Dietitian “in their pocket” seven days a week, “we can provide a greater chance of long-term success.” Describing the system, he says, “Our system encourages better eating through easy accountability, and fosters personal, private relationships with the most highly trained professionals in the nutrition field.”

The service has “aggressively discounted” their prices for the holiday season, providing users with the opportunity to “provide the one you care about an opportunity to meet their own dietary objectives.” Gift cards can be downloaded or mailed to users.

Although you might not be comfortable getting people you don’t know very well a holiday gift that might suggest that they need to lose a few pounds, the promotion is one that users can take advantage of to stick to their New Year’s resolutions. Through the app, you may finally be able to stick to your goals for a new you for 2013. Rick Hall, MS, RD, Arizona State University senior lecturer of nutrition and vice president of operations at My Dietitian, says, “We’ve always known that people who receive regular feedback from a Registered dietitian can improve their diets.”

The company offers standard, premium, executive, and platinum services at various price points, depending on the level of service users require to stick to their nutritional goals. For anyone who has tried and failed to diet or broken their New Year’s resolution to lose weight before February, My Dietitian’s holiday sale is the perfect motivation to get fit by getting smart and getting help.
