I’m Elisabetta Politi. I’m a dietitian-nutritionist at
Duke Diet and Fitness Center. Most of the the clients I see
are carrying excess weight and I see them to help them
change their lifestyle. I am a diabetes educator, so I see patients who are trying
to prevent diabetes and patients who are trying to improve
their diabetes care by a combination of healthy eating, exercise, and
proper medication regimen. I see clients who just say that they
are in my office because they’re completely confused about what
a healthy meal plan looks like. Sometimes I see patients
who report low energy or they just feel that there are times during
the day that they wish they ate better. I really get almost a rush of adrenaline
when I feel that I have helped my clients. When I feel that there
is that ah-ha moment, when they say I didn’t think about that,
that’s such a great idea. So, I really feel rewarded and
I feel they made my day when I feel that I have given them
a suggestion that they wanna try. I like to read,
I like exercise especially outdoors. I like to cook, I really feel that
preparing meals is a good way to make sure that I keep updated on
what I do because I get questions everyday about how can I make this
flavor for berryline calories? So I am fascinated by food and
different cultural experience regarding food and
I’m just really excited about that.
