What is the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist?
Nutritionists can be anyone who is self-proclaimed to be a nutrition expert. Dietitians, however, must pass a nationally accredited exam and be licensed to practice dietetics in their state. They typically have a graduate degree and must complete a challenging internship for 1000-2000 hours. Make sure if you are receiving nutrition counseling, it is from someone who is qualified to give you that information.
Why should I schedule a consultation with a dietitian?
Here are a few examples of topics we can cover based on your wellness goals: choosing balanced snacks, meal prep, protein intake, post-workout meals and snacks, hydration, supplements, discussing fad diets, food allergens, and general nutrition education.
How many calories or how much protein should I eat in a day?
This depends on your activity level, type of physical activity, age, and a variety of other factors! A registered dietitian can take these factors into account and calculate your recommended protein and caloric intake.
What can I eat to lose weight?
There are no magic foods or supplements that will cause weight loss. The diet industry is worth $66 billion and makes empty promises that a fad diet will instantly make you lose 10 pounds. A healthy relationship with food and exercise may lead to weight loss, but the goal of a nutrition consultation is to achieve that healthy relationship with food and exercise.
What is the best diet for me?
Although there are plenty of diets out there (ketogenic diet, low-fat diets, intermittent fasting), there is no one diet that will work for everyone. Scheduling a nutrition consultation will help your dietitian determine your needs and come up with an individualized way to optimize your nutrition.
