Protecting the police from doughnuts

Rana Parker wants to protect and serve the LAPD.

Protect them from doughnuts and serve them healthy food.

Parker is a dietitian who works fulltime for the Los Angeles Police Department.

She tries to help everyone from raw recruits to the top brass make good food choices.

She jokes with officers she's not the food police.

But Parker says she gives officers information that aids them in making sound decisions about what they choose to eat.

Recruit Ashley Goodroe is a convert.

She says she's dropped four dress sizes since September thanks to Parker's advice.
