Patrick Berner is a Physical Therapist and Registered Dietician who speaks regularly on the topics of nutrition and health.
We all eat certain foods for a reason. Whether it be preference, what we grew up eating, our culture, but even our access to foods.It’s important to know these reasons and the fact that we are all different in order to go any further in integrating nutrition into PT practice.
We can talk about what is “healthy” all day, but if it doesn’t fit into someone’s life or they don’t know how to make it fit, then it’s all for none.
What I eat will never look identical to what you eat.
My access to food will differ from a majority of people.
Knowing the reason behind behaviors and nutritional determinants sets up future success.
