Lauren Melton, MS, RDN, LDN, CDCESRegistered Dietitian & Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist
Hi! I’m Lauren Melton, a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist in Maryland.
I see patients in Greenbelt, Columbia, and virtually across the United States.
My love and interest for nutrition came from my own weight struggles as an adolescent and teenager, and I want to share everything I’ve learned with you! I love food, and do not believe that an overly restrictive diet is a sustainable way of reaching your goals. Instead, I’ll help you develop strategies that are tailored specifically for you, so you can improve your health while still enjoying a life that is not based on “good” and “bad” foods.
I provide a safe, supportive environment of learning and accountability for all my clients. No two individuals are the same, and their eating patterns and lifestyle should reflect that. I start by getting to know my clients, and then help them gradually incorporate healthier habits into their daily routine to promote lifelong strategies for reaching and maintaining health–whatever the goal may be!
“Lauren was very prepared and helpful with her suggestions. She sent me lots of reference material to get more ideas.”

“Lauren was very patient (with all my questions), knowledgeable and professional. I was slightly worried about being to sign on virtually but it was easy.”
