Case Study # 1
A 45-year old man was referred to the Lipid Disorders Clinic with a plasma triglyceride
of 1600 mg/dL. The physician prescribed medical nutrition therapy (MNT) for a 10% fat diet. When the RD asked about his level of motivation for making changes in his eating or exercise habits, he replied, “Exactly zero!” The RD responded, “Then we have nothing to talk about.” He replied, “What do you mean?” The patient and the RD then had a 30-minute conversation. The patient set a goal to order Big Macs (29 grams fat) instead of the Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburgers (77 grams fat). This goal was not in keeping with a 10% fat diet. At the end of the session, the RD gave the patient an analysis of his eating habits, his goal sheet, practical information about the 10% fat diet, and a return appointment.
