In this podcast episode I’m speaking with fellow registered dietitian and nutritionist Jerlyn Jones, who is the owner of The Lifestyle Dietitian LLC, an Atlanta-based nutrition consulting practice. Jerlyn’s work focuses on adults with digestive problems, fatigue, diabetes, disease prevention, obesity and weight management, and heart disease. As you’ll hear, Jerlyn’s own health journey uncovering and treating a Vitamin D deficiency has guided much of the efforts she makes to share healthy living habits with her clients.


My conversation with Jerlyn touched on many important topics, but here are some of the key takeaways from our chat:

  • Being your own health advocate is extremely important, so don’t be afraid to push for testing you think is necessary.
  • Vitamin D plays an essential role in our overall health and wellness, especially for our bones, mood, and cell growth and proliferation, to name a few.
  • Diversity in the wellness world allows for practitioners to best serve and understand their clients’ individual needs.
  • Healthy living is knowing you have the power to change lifestyle patterns or habits that lower your risk of being seriously ill and prevent long-term illnesses. To this end, special focus should be placed on eating nutrient-rich foods, moving your body daily with exercises you enjoy, getting adequate sleep, managing stress, and not smoking.
