RESOURCES Registered Dietitian

As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist am frequently asked for book, website and other resource suggestions so I thought it would be helpful to provide a list of references that I personally use or have been recommended by clients. This is by no means an exhaustive list. What resources do you find helpful or interesting?
