"Check your own food behaviors and lifestyle to ensure
you are modeling good ones for your children.
Remember, they will do what you DO, not what you say!"
- Angela Lemond, RD, CSP, LD

Angela Lemond, RD interviewed by NBC
on Weight Control and the Function of "Fitmate:

Angela is a registered and licensed dietitian who specializes in pediatric nutrition, weight management, wellness, family nutrition, oncology and gastroenterology.  She received her clinical dietetic training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.  Upon graduating, she began her career at Children's Medical Center Dallas where she worked for five years in clinical pediatrics.  She now has her own private practice seeing both adult and pediatric patients.
Angela’s current nutrition initiatives surround the promotion of healthy family lifestyles.  She is very active in media communications and has been quoted locally and nationally on the subject of healthy eating and being a healthy role model for children.  Angela serves on media boards for both the Dallas and Texas Dietetic Association.  She is a Certified Specialist in Weight Management as well as a Board Certified Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition through the Commission on Dietetic Registration. 
Angela's expertise in family nutrition and as a growth specialist allows her to assist children and their families to achieve optimum health.  Whether your child is overweight, underweight or on a special diet, nutrition therapy is key to your child's success. Other specialty areas include digestive disorders, growth failure, overweight and infant nutrition.  Angela is also a Lactation Specialist who assists mothers with breastfeeding concerns.  Angela sees pediatric patients at all 3 office locations. 

With a family of her own, Angela knows the challenges of providing balanced nutrition with limited time.  Whether you are an adult that needs to make changes, or you have a child that has a health condition requiring a special diet - the family needs to be part of the solution.  That's why Angela believes that the "how" of eating is just as important as the "what" of eating. Many times we know what to eat, but do not know exactly how to implement it in our day to day life.

Angela has used her experience developing the LEAN Families program at Children's Medical Center Dallas to co-author another family nutrition program with Kathryn Fink, MS, RD, CSSD, LD. Simply entitled, "It's A Family Thing!,"  this program de-emphasizes any single person in the family.  No matter what size you are, all family members have goals set for them to work on throughout the program.  This is one of the most hands-on and practical nutrition programs around.
Each week Angela provides her readers through the Mommy Dietitian Blog, current and practical information to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
