Dietician Vs Nutritionist

The main difference between a Nutritionist and a Dietitian is the specific credentials achieved by the individual. The nature of the work can be very familiar, depending instead on the chosen area of practice.

Nutritionist -

Quite simply, a basic definition of a Nutritionist would be any professional with an education in nutritional science of any kind, working in a capacity where they are trusted to instruct, recommend and or assist with the nutrition, diet and wellness of their clients or patients.

Dietician -

A Dietitian, on the other hand, under current regulations, must earn a four-year degree in dietetics or nutritional sciences from an accredited college or university, complete a regulation internship in the nutrition science field as well as pass the Registered Dietitian (RD) or Dietetic Technicians, Registered (DTR) examination authorized by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), the credentialing agency of the American Dietetic Association (ADA).
