Nutritionists And Dietitians

A Nutritionist Versus A Dietitian

Next » « Previous


Both nutritionists and dietitians are health practitioners. There may or may not be a state licensing requirement for nutritionists or dietitians.
A nutritionist has comprehensive knowledge about: 

  • Nutrition and how it affects the human body
  • The specific nutritional properties of foods. 
A nutritionist may aid an individual in determining how best to manage his or her diet to minimize the effects of a treatment, for optimum health, for weight loss or gain, or to meet specific needs such as managing stress through nutrition.

In general, a dietitian works with health facilities developing diets for patients. A dietitian also works with patients with eating disorders or chronic conditions that prohibit normal intake of foods or who have conditions directly related to diet. Some dietitians also specialize in disease or treatment related treatment issues.
