On your journey to health with Dietitians, have you ever noticed that there are way fewer male Dietitians than female Dietitians?
You are not wrong, among our elite Dietitians, only 10% of them are male Dietitians! Crazy, right? This is why finding a male Dietitian in a female-dominated profession may seem challenging sometimes.
But don’t you worry, we truly understand that people are sometimes more comfortable with a healthcare professional of the same gender. In fact, we’ve done the work for you to narrow down the search! Here are the top 5 male Dietitians that are totally kicking it in their field.
On to the Top Male Private Practice Dietitians in Canada
Brandon Gruber, BSc, RD, Registered Dietitian at Revive Wellness Inc and My Viva Inc.
As a passionate Dietitian, Brandon loves helping his clients understand the connection between their nutrition and physical and mental health. He wishes to educate his clients on how their diets and performances are interrelated. As a male Dietitian, he shares and understands the unique diet needs specific to the client’s gender, so he works closely with his clients to meet their unique nutrition needs and help them thrive.
For example, he works with people to help them understand what healthy eating is, and also what they can do to improve their exercise performance. Most importantly, Brandon supports clients who are athletes, vegetarian or vegan, who have ADHD and so many more beyond these 3 categories. It may be easier for male athletes to relate to a male Dietitian, and so Brandon is working hard to help his clients achieve their goals and reach success.
It is also important to note that Brandon lets the client define their path and boundaries instead of him doing that for them. He believes in self-empowerment and he wishes to build confidence within his clients.
