What's the difference between a Registered Dietitian (RD) and a "health coach" or "nutritionist" ?
Registered dietitians are the most qualified professionals when it comes to nutrition. In order to put RD next to our names, we have to undergo a 4-year bachelor's program, a supervised internship, pass a national exam, and maintain this title through lifelong continuing education. Many RD's also hold a master's degree.
Nowadays, there are many people dolling out nutrition advice on the internet - those without any credentials, varying degrees of formal training, or lack thereof. Dietitians are accountable to provincial regulatory bodies for the highest standards of education and ethics, similar to doctors and engineers. Lisa works hard to ensure she upholds and delivers this same caliber to her work with all her clients and clinics alike.
