Dietitians vs Nutritionists
Registered Dietitians (RD) are food and nutrition experts who have to follow specific educational and professional requirements from an accredited program to attain their title, including a bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree, completion of a Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE) program, which includes classes in biochemistry, anatomy, and physiology plus a dietetic internship for a minimum of 900 hours. Before becoming an RD, they also have to pass a standardized national exam and complete continuing education credits to maintain their title — meaning RDs are required to stay abreast of current trends and issues, while Nutritionists do it voluntarily.
The words “dietitian” and “nutritionist” are often used interchangeably, but they are not the same. All dietitians are nutritionists, but not all nutritionists are dietitians. A dietitian is a Registered Dietitian (RD), which means the person has a degree, usually in Dietetics & Nutrition, thus their advice is based on current nutrition science.
