Meet our new Licensed Registered Dietitian, Elizabeth

A lot of people ask, whats the difference between a dietician and a nutritionist?

The world of nutrition can be confusing, right down to the titles we are given.

I’m a Licensed Registered Dietitian or a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, sounds confusing and fancy, it took me a lot of hard work to earn the title.

So whats the differences between a dietitian and a nutritionist.

  • Dietician
  • Must have at least a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college in the US
  • Completes 1200 hours of supervised practice/training through an accredited program
  • Passes a national exam
  • Holds a license to practice in their state
  • Studies food, nutrition and dietetics
  • Works with healthy and sick populations including people with chronic illnesses
  • Completes continuing education requirements to maintain registration
  • `Promotes health and wellness
  • Can bill to insurance for certain visits
  • Nutritionist
  • No education required to be referred to as a nutritionist (the term ‘nutritionist’ isn’t legally regulated)
  • No internship or exam required
  • Promotes health and wellness
  • Cannot bill to insurance

Every Dietitian is a nutritionist, but not every nutritionist is a Registered Dietitian though both generally have health and wellness in mind.

Even if you feel healthy, and don’t have a diagnosis of anything a Registered Dietitian can still help you by looking at the whole picture of your nutrition, finding gaps and capitalizing on areas you’re already doing great.

  • Diabetes (or pre-diabetes)
  • Heart Disease
  • High Cholesterol
  • Weight Issues
  • Digestive Issues

Maybe a family member has one of these conditions and you want to look out for yourself, we can help!

We have been trained in these areas and more.

We can meet you in the middle whether its lifestyle, family dynamics or just where you are in regard to being ready for a change. We can help, we have time to listen and can spot things you might not even be aware of.

You could walk away from just one appointment with a list of ideas, snacks, things to try and just answers to the questions you’ve been wondering about!
