What a Registered Nutritionist is
Nutrition covers many fields. There are many people who claim to be professionals who do not have the recognised qualifications to meet your needs. If in any doubt, speak to your GP. Registered Nutritionists have at least 3 years experience and recognised qualifications using science based on evidence. There are certain areas which they are not qualified to deal with though so they will always point you in the right direction. There has been much bad press about nutritionists recently but this is those who are not registered with the Association for Nutrition. You can trust a Registered Nutritionist, just like you can trust a Dietitian.
Please don't call me with marketing opportunities.
