What is the difference between a dietician and a nutritionis

what is the difference between a dietician and a nutritionist?

A dietitian is a board-certified food and nutrition expert. They're highly educated in the field of nutrition and dietetics - the science of food, nutrition, and their impact on human health. Through extensive training, dietitians acquire the expertise to provide evidence-based medical nutrition therapy and nutritional counseling tailored to meet an individual’s needs.

In the United States, the title “nutritionist” may encompass individuals with a broad range of credentials and training in nutrition. In states that don’t regulate the use of this term, anyone with an interest in diet or nutrition may call themselves a nutritionist. These individuals may apply their interest in nutrition to anything from running a food blog to working with clients.
