Registered Dietitians have completed a 4-year degree from a nutrition program accredited by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), the credentialing agency for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. All Registered Dietitians have also completed a supervised internship, passed a rigorous credentialing exam, and must maintain continuing education and adhere to a code of ethics to maintain the RD status.
Registered dietitians are highly educated and skilled nutritionists. However, the term ‘nutritionist’ is not as well regulated. A nutritionist may have a degree in nutrition, and (often) may not. While there are some nutritionists who teach evidence-based (and scientifically-validated) information, many do not. It is difficult to validate the credentials of a nutritionist, but quite simple to validate the education, experience and skills of Registered Dietitians. In many states anyone can call themselves a Nutritionist, even if they have never taken a class in nutrition from an accredidted university. MyDietitian only employs Registered Dietitians – the premier source for evidence-based diet and nutrition information.
Registered Dietitians will review your diet and make suggestions, provied evidence-based nutrition information and encouragement to help you make improvements and changes to create a healthier diet and lifestyle.
