Q & A ~ Most frequently asked questions and answers.

What is the difference between a Nutritionist and a Dietition?

Nutritionists and dietitians differ in important ways.

In general, nutritionists are health practitioners with comprehensive knowledge of how nutrition impacts the whole body focusing on medical nutrition therapy, metabolism and biochemistry, and work primarily in private practice settings conducting one-on-one nutrition counseling. Nutritionists practice an integrative approach to medicine and concentrate on prevention and treatment of chronic disease. Certified nutritionists have different approaches, which usually include the use of nutritional supplements. (C.N.C., C.N.,N.C., C.C.N., or C.C.S). 

 Dietitians, in general, are experts in  nutrition science.  It often is focused on the RDA recommendations and The Food Pyramid. With training focusing on institutional diets and food service management—developing diets for hospital patients, school food service programs, and nursing homes. Dietitians can provide individualized counseling on diet and disease and there can be an overlap in the type of work each profession practices. Most dietitians believe you can get what nutrients you need from the food you eat (including fried and processed food) and often do not approve of the use of supplements. (R.D.).
