What is a “nutritionist” or a registered dietitian?
A registered dietitian (RD) is a food and nutrition expert who has met the stringent requirements set forth by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE), the Academy of Nutrition and the Dietetics (AND) and Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).
A rigorous national board exam must be passed to earn the RD designation. Additional licensure is then granted by the state in which the RD practices allowing the use of the Licensed Dietitian (LD) or Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN) designation. The use of RD and LD or LDN requires extensive continuing education credits thereafter to hold status.
Most people confuse “nutritionist” with “registered dietitian (RD)”. Anyone can call him/herself a “nutritionist” regardless of education achieved since nutrition is not a regulated profession. Only a registered dietitian has the thorough and advanced education to be considered an expert in the science of nutrition according to the regulatory bodies mentioned above.
The RDs at Family Nutrition Consultants help you fine-tune your nutritional needs by tailoring an eating plan for your body. Even if individuals are of the same family and share similarities, each individual’s body is different in how it responds to food and nutrients.
Most diseases are brought on by improper diet and poor nutrition over an extended period of time.
At Family Nutrition Consultants, we will help you translate nutrition research and literature into practical information that you can use. We will also help you conquer eating habits that are not serving you well and can provide recipes that are pleasing to the palate. We will also monitor your progress and encourage you along the way to help you achieve your nutritional goals for a lifetime of good health.
Hippocrates said: “Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.”
