    Bites from the Dietician

    Terry Passano

    Articles By:

    Terry Passano, RDN, LDN, CLT

    University Dietitian

    It’s now spring, and summer is right around the corner. As the weather gets warmer, many people change focus to weight and how that swim suit will fit over the next few months. Please remember that weight does not define you, but I’ve got your back and can offer healthy plans to follow to lose those pounds. Weight loss is closely related to metabolism and is much more than what you eat. To learn more read my article on “Metabolism, Lifestyle and Food.”


    Nutrition counseling services are available to all SU students, staff and faculty at no charge (all counseling is confidential).


    We’d love to hear from our readers! Are there nutrition questions you have or subjects related to nutrition you would like to learn more about? Email your questions, suggestions and inquiries to for publication in our next issue of The Zest.

    Catering Corner

    • Now is the time to book your end-of-the-semester or graduation-related events. Book the room even if you don’t know your specific food needs or guest counts yet.
    • Spring has sprung! Let our chef create a menu for your next event that highlights the flavors and harvest of spring – just ask.
    • We are hiring! Flexible hours, a meal when you work and no experience is necessary.
