I'm an active, healthy 39 year old male who can't lose the last 10-15 pounds. Is a registered dietician the way to go or do I look elsewhere?

In brief: If pregnant

It may not be the right time to try to lose extra 10-15lbs.
If not pregnant and BMI is above 25, will suggest evaluation by a Bariatrician. The Bariatrician after evaluating you may refer you to a dietitian,or may use an apetite supressor or fat absorption blocker or Belviq (lorcaserin) to aid in reaching your goal as he deem appropriate
