Jo-Ann Heslin, MA, CDN, RD - Food and Nutrition Columnist

As a registered dietitian (RD), certified dietitian/nutritionist (CDN), and nutrition educator for over 30 years, Jo-Ann Heslin knows that her readers are more interested in what to order for lunch than understanding how their metabolism works. She has spent her career translating nutrition science into practical, easy to understand, reliable nutrition advice. She has served as an advisor and consultant to business and industry, as a partner in NRH Nutrition Consultants, Inc., as well as being on the editorial boards or Prevention, American Baby, Environmental Nutrition Newsletter, and The Journal of Nutrition in Gerontology and Geriatrics.

Information about food choices is often confusing because scientific information is constantly evolving. Jo-Ann helps readers translate this contradictory information into good advice you can use right now. Everyone loves to talk about food its fun. But, we need to talk about nutrition, too its important to your health.

For over 25 years she has helped readers achieve good health through the use of her best-selling nutrition counter book series with 28 titles and over 61 editions published.
