The Dietitian Difference
Every registered dietitian is a nutritionist but not every nutritionist is a dietitian! Unlike dietitians, the nutritionist profession is much less protected under the law. Therefore many nutritionists are practicing without any previous education, training, or work experience. Registered dietitians (RDs) have to have:
- A four-year bachelor degree
- Complete an internship with 1200 hours or more
- Pass the national CDR exam
- Complete continuing education credits to maintain their RD status
What Can a Registered Dietitian Do For You?
Here is just a shortlist of what RD’s can help you with via the power of nutrition!
- Weight loss
- Sports nutrition
- Weight gain
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Meal planning
- Following a specific diet such as vegan/vegetarian
- Pediatric and/or family consultations
- Intestinal disorders
- Food allergies/sensitivities
- And so much more!

Special Nutrition Programs/Classes
Keep an eye out for programs and classes where you can participate in cooking demos, and classes for specific conditions like eating for diabetes, heart-healthy eating and learning about foods that fight inflammation.
