As a consulting dietitian, Doug has worked with a variety of clients including Welchs, BioK Plus Probiotics, McNeill Consumer Healthcare and more. According to clients, friends and others Doug’s worked with, his strength lies in his ability to explain complicated nutrition and scientific concepts in plain language which he then puts into everyday practical dietary advice. Putting nutritional issues into perspective and context, he’s able to help clients individualize a particular message while keeping the big picture in mind.
