Watch for Red Flags

...at the first appointment with a nutritionist.

  • The eliminator: Telling you that you may never eat something. It can trigger a disordered relationship with food and is not rooted in science.
  • The pill popper: Be careful of anyone selling a product in addition to following their plan. The best way to get nutrients is through a varied, whole-food-based diet.
  • The one-size-fits-all: Be aware of someone who likes only one style of eating, like vegan or keto. A good nutritionist will be well versed in a wide array of diet patterns.
  • The therapist: If a dietician thinks you need extra help, they should be recommending another expert, not overstep boundaries.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

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

There is no certification required to call yourself a nutritionist.

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.
