This document is written by a dietitian, Shawna Melbourn, RD, CEDRD-S, CIEC, just for dietitians. It includes my top 20 questions to ask your client if you suspect they are struggling with their relationship with food or their body.
In fact, these questions should be included in ALL initial client assessments with a dietitian. Given that 40-60% of the individuals you are seeing right now are most likely struggling with either disordered eating, poor body image, and/or a full-blown eating disorder. It only makes sense that we as RDs spend more time assessing for eating challenges.
This is why I have created this list of questions for you to consider when seeing clients, despite the reason they may be seeking your services.
