I agree. However dietitians need to explore more and more their communication skills ( Human to Human approach) to counsel patients and focus on behavior change. Food prescriptions and dictatorial plans are not different thant those brought by computers and nutrition tests and apps. Our future as dietitians of the future relies on bringing a better, new and differente approach. The "Instintuto Nutrição Comportamental" (Behavioral Nutrition Institute) in Brazil aims to change and amplify this professional"s view trainning our dietitians on skills to work on eating behavior change. We are pionneers here and would love to spread this to the worls. FOR A DIFFERENT NUTRITION APPROACH!

Nutrition is a science that is constantly evolving. Today, for example, we are in the age of nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics. There are many software packages that help in the professional's work, but nothing replaces the individuality of each service. Contact with the patient / client is essential.
