What is a Nutritionist?
No Formal Accreditation
Widely used, the term "nutritionists" is not accredited and is not protected by any governing body.
No Mandated Requirements
The government doesn't regulate this term and almost anyone can self-proclaim themselves as a "nutritionist" - proceed with caution.
Cannot Provide Medical Nutrition Therapy
While some nutritionists can work in food service industries, they do not have the training to counsel patients on dietary treatment of diseases. Dietitians do.
Little to No Education
Nutritionists may have done classes, coursework, or they could be self-designated and add the title "Nutritionist" to their name.
