If you want nutrition help, make sure you seek a legitimate, trained nutrition professional.

The term Registered Dietitian (that's the official spelling) or "RD" for short, can only be used by practitioners who are authorized to use the credential by the American Dietetic Association.

Individuals with the credential have completed specific academic and supervised practice requirements, successfully completed a registration examination and maintained requirements for recertification. (In other words, they're qualified.)

And here's the good news: I'm one!

Some RDs call themselves nutritionists

The definition and requirements for the term "nutritionist" vary and are not legally defined. So know this:

Someone who calls him or herself a "nutritionist" is not necessarily an RD.
