Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) Guide for 100 Common Conditions for Dietitians

Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) Guide for 100 Common Conditions for Dietitians

Are you in a Nutrition & Dietetics undergraduate program, a Dietetic Internship, studying for the RD Exam, or even a new Dietitian and you're looking for a comprehensive, searchable, and modifiable MNT guide for common disease states that you'll see every day in your future job? This resource was made specifically for you.


All throughout my undergraduate program and Dietetic Internship, I was searching for a resource that comprehensively covered the MNT recommendations available for each condition, but could never find anything that satisfied what I was looking for. So, I created it. My name is Jacob and I'm a Registered Dietitian in Washington, DC- I've spent the past 18 months of my life researching and compiling this exhaustive MNT guide from the totality of the evidence available for each condition, all with the goal of helping those who are now walking in the shoes that I once walked in. I hope it's as useful to you as I know it would have been for me at the time.


The guide is over 70 pages long (of 8.0-10.5 point font) and contains the MNT recommendations for 100 different conditions, curated into a guide that you will reference every single day. I still do in my position as a Clinical RD! The guide is light on pathophysiology, etiology, epidemiology, etc. with only pertinent information detailed, but it is very heavy on MNT recommendations. Exactly what you need as a Dietitian, no matter which setting you work in.


With every purchase, the buyer will receive free updates for life every time we release them, directly to your email! Those who purchase the guide will also receive other free content periodically as well. You'll also be supporting a Registered Dietitian's small business, and helping us obtain the resources necessary to continue to create and locate resources that will benefit the future generations of our profression!
