Tia Reid, Director of Nutritional Services at Memorial Hospital, has completed her certification as a Metabolic Health Practitioner through The Society of Metabolic Health Practitioners (SMHP). She received her certification thru following the Nutrition Network Path and Advisor training in LCHF (Low-Carb, High-Fat)/Keto Nutrition. The Network is an education, connection and learning platform founded by The Noakes Foundation in partnership with an esteemed team of doctors and scientists. The platform covers the latest and most up-to-date science and research in the field of Low Carb Nutrition. The Advisor Training offered through the Network provides online LCHF education for those looking to acquire a professional accreditation in nutrition coaching.
Reid’s goal is to be able to offer LCHF/Keto Nutrition as a choice to help others in their own journeys to wellness. "I see an opportunity to put together programs for wellness that include Therapeutic Carbohydrate Restriction (TCR) and in collaboration with education provided by Memorial Hospital’s Registered Dietitian, Melissa Soellner." Both Reid’s LCHF/Keto Nutrition Certification and Soellner’s PreventT2, CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program, provide guidance on managing diabetes, reading food labels, planning meals, overcoming obstacles, and improving physical activity. Together, the goal is to bring nutrition education, options, and support to those in the community who want to live a healthier and more active life, to help guide, motivate and inspire lasting change for wellness.
