    Nutritionist

    Choosing The Right Nutritionist Isn’t Good Taste, It’s the Choice Well Made.

    Overview

    It’s also about the person’s credentials and experience, of course, and matching the right kind of personality with each client. We can find you nutritionists who have worked with athletes, children, families, executives, recovering addicts and individuals with eating disorders, all with a various range of health objectives. An experienced nutritionist can support your efforts to lose weight, gain muscle mass or increase stamina. They can also can create, implement and help you stick to a healthy eating plan.

    If you or someone in your family must adhere to strict dietary restrictions (see Private Chef), it doesn’t have to prevent you from eating well and enjoying yourself at mealtimes. If you have food allergies, an inability to digest certain foods, or need to keep your blood sugar or enzyme levels within a specific threshold, a nutritionist can help you stay on course with fewer setbacks.

    Benefits of employing a nutritionist

    Qualifications

    There are no specific entry requirements to become a nutritionist, but most nutritionists typically have at least a 4-year degree from an accredited college or university.

    Many people opt to attain and hold the Association for Nutrition (AfN) certification, which requires a minimum of degree-level nutrition science. Graduates from AfN-accredited nutrition degrees are eligible to apply for registered associate nutritionist (ANutr) registration. One of the ‘largest learned societies’ in the world for nutrition in the world, the U.K. based Nutrition Society, has offered membership on a voluntary basis since 1941 and serves to keep nutritionists and dietitians up to date with current research.

    Nutritionists specializing in sports and exercise or performance nutrition may elect to hold the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr) certification offered by The British Dietetic Association, the trade union and professional body for dietitians in the UK.

    How they will help

    While personal/private chefs can expertly prepare delicious and satisfying meals, nutritionists bring a different set of skills to the table. They ensure that the foods you eat provide your body with the nourishment it needs to perform at peak levels while providing balanced levels of nutrients based on your individual physiology.
