Frequently Asked Questions
Why Choose A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist?
Registered Dietitians have a vast education in nutrition sciences and are uniquely qualified to give you sound nutrition advice that is evidence based to help you cut through all the nutrition misinformation and fads. Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist but only registered dietitians have completed a minimum of a bachelor degree, an accredited internship, and have taken an accredited exam to become Registered Dietitians. An RD understands that there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution and helps make healthy living practical for you. Dietitians also have an understanding of chronic diseases as well as the experience and skills to educate and help you implement the changes you need to manage your disease whether it’s diabetes, high blood pressure, or cancer. They can also provide valuable tips and strategies for people with food allergies and intolerances/sensitivities to meet their nutritional needs despite these challenges. Overall, Registered Dietitians use their expertise to help create a plan that is safe, effective, and works for you.
