Look for the Letters

There is no certification required to call yourself a nutritionist.

  • A registered dietician requires a bachelor's degree at an accredited university. A licensed dietitian will have RD, RDN, LD, LDN, or CDN after their name, depending on the state they live in.
  • Holistic nutritionists do a six-month training course.
  • Functional-nutrition practitioners do and 80-hour training course.
  • Intuitive health coaches do a 200-hour training course
  • Some well-educated experts have not followed the typical career pathway.

...at the first appointment with a nutritionist.

From all the dietary information from wellness influencers, only one in 12 recommendations is nutritionally sound.

When you're going to see a nutritionist, you should have a goal in mind, whether that's gaining strength or losing weight.

A good nutritionist will go through your current diet, discuss nutrition basics, and work together to set realistic goals.

If you're training at a high volume, consulting with an RD who doesn't have a sports background is not what you need as they might not understand the rigors of training for enduro races.
