Who is a Nutritionist/Dietitian?

                                                                                              

A nutritionist is the health professional who inspects and evaluate the dietary habits of individuals and further guide them to eat a balanced diet according to various principles of nutrition. There is a slight difference between ‘dietetics’ and ‘nutrition’:

Dietetics focuses on food management and can plan an adequate diet menu for you, whereas a nutrition specialist focuses on the promotion of health through eating healthy food.

After graduating a three-year-course in B.Sc/B.A. Nutrition, it is prerequisite for a Nutritionist to qualify a license/registration from a school accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE), in order to practice as a clinical dietitian.

However, a Dietitian holds a bachelors and/or Masters/PG diploma degree in Food & Dietetics (in which nutrition can be an added subject.). Dietitians can practice independent or work at places like nursing homes, schools, prisons, community health programs, and home health care agencies.

*Nutritionists cannot call themselves as “dietitians”, however, all dietitians can call themselves as “dietitian-nutritionist”.

 

What are the key responsibilities of a Nutritionist?

A nutritionist/dietitian assist any individual to achieve their required nutrition and fitness goals. These specialists primarily work to keep your digestive system and body, function smoothly.

A nutritionist:

  • Tailor an eating plan that works best for you—whether your goal is weight loss, learning how to eat a healthy diet, or boosting your iron, calcium, potassium, or any mineral or vitamin intake so as to avoid deficiencies.
  • Work closely with patients dealing with medical concerns such as diabetes, hypertension, or those undergoing chemotherapy, to name a few.
  • Discuss and strategize weight-management plans for those suffering from obesity and help them choose the right foods to eat, for optimum weight loss results.
  • Assess patients’ current dietary habits and needs, and accordingly educate them on healthy eating habits.
  • Follow up to ensure that their suggested menus are working, and write reports that document a patient’s progress.
  • Advise and plan a balanced nutritional strategy, suiting to ones’ specific medical condition, age, and gender.

Dietitians also address to groups such as schools or corporates, to inform and educate pupil about good nutrition practices.
