Why Work With a Dietitian?
A registered dietitian nutritionist, or RDN for short, is a food and nutrition expert responsible for translating the science of nutrition into everyday practical solutions necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle. RDNs have the expertise, training and credentials to separate fact from fad while offering sound advice about how a nutritious diet can improve health, fight disease and aid in weight management.
How is a Registered Dietitian different than a Nutritionist? The “RDN” credential can only be used by practitioners who are recognized by the Commission on Dietetics Registration of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Some registered dietitians call themselves “nutritionists” but not all nutritionists can call themselves “registered dietitians” as the RDN credential is a legally protected title requiring licensure, approved educational specifics and clinical experience. Some states have licensure laws that define the range of practice for someone titled a “nutritionist”, but not all. Be aware that in some states anyone can call themselves a “nutritionist” regardless of proper education and training. Consulting a registered dietitian guarantees you’ll received professional nutrition advice from an experienced expert.
