Why Should I See A Houston Registered Dietitian?
Your health is a serious issue and feeling good is very important. Not only is it crucial to value your health, but also it is equally essential to find a Registered Dietitian that understands your needs and supports you.
When you value your health and are ready to take action, a Registered Dietitian will be the key to achieve your health and nutrition goals.
What’s the Difference Between a Dietitian and a Nutritionist?
Most Registered Dietitians have a Master’s Degree through an accredited undergraduate or graduate school program. They follow evidence-based practices rooted in scientific research, have passed a national board examination, and obtained state licensure. Registered Dietitians follow the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Association Norms and are bound to their legal and professional laws.
Many people can call themselves nutritionists, yet your health should be in the right hands. A Registered Dietitian has the required academic background and accredited title to help you achieve your health and nutrition goals.
A Registered Dietitian is more than just a nutritionist: our unique combination of experience, knowledge, and research will help you streamline your strategy and maximize your results.
