Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) for individuals with eating disorders is supported by the American Psychological Association, the Academy for Eating Disorders, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Nutrition counseling for eating disorders expands the Registered Dietitian’s (RD) traditional role to include critical and courageous conversations involving one’s relationship with food, and the meaning/role/function of the eating disorder in one's life and within the cultural backdrop. Dietitians help the recovery process by providing nutrition guidance and supporting essential behavior change. They also work in close collaboration with mental health professionals, medical professionals, and personal supports to form a core recovery team.
