Nutrition & Diet Sessions

What are the benefits of working with a Registered Dietitian?

There is so much nutrition information on the internet and in magazines that it can be difficult to navigate what is actually factual and science-based when it comes to a healthy diet. Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, but only a registered dietitian has completed multiple layers of education and training. In addition to holding a bachelor’s degree, an RD must complete 1,200 hours of supervised practice in a variety of settings and pass a rigorous comprehensive exam. A dietitian has a science-based education, as well as experience in counseling that will help you meet your specific needs.
