DON’T GET DUPED!
- Changing a light bulb doesn’t make you a certified electrician.
- Wearing scrubs doesn’t make you a nurse.
- Having a 6-pack doesn’t make you a dietitian.
Nutrition is an individualized science, NOT a one-size-fits all “here’s your meal plan” kind of thing. You know how an outfit can look amazing on your best friend but just not fit you quite right? That’s kind of how nutrition goes too… Just because someone has gotten results for themselves does not mean that they understand the physiology and complexities of the body and how it interacts with food, and how those complexities can differ among individuals.
Registered dietitians are qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual level.
