What’s the difference between a nutritionist and a Registered Dietitian?
A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a nutrition expert who holds at minimum a bachelor’s degree focused on nutrition science from an ACEND-approved program, completed 1200 hours of supervised practice in various fields, and passed a National Boards Exam administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. Registered Dietitians also must complete continuing professional education to maintain their credentials.
A "nutritionist" is not a nationally recognized title and is less clearly defined. It could be someone who worked for years to earn a graduate degree in nutrition science. It could also be someone who earned a certificate at a weekend workshop. No matter who you choose to work with, it's important that they have rigorous training to best meet your needs.
