Why consult a registered dietitian (RD)? Nutrition counselling is offered by a variety of people using different titles. Like all regulated health professionals, dietitians undergo comprehensive and rigorous training, both on-the-job and in universities. In Canada, a dietitian must register with their provincial college, which includes a four year undergraduate degree at an accredited university, an internship program (usually one year) and college exams. The college protects the public by ensuring members provide ethical, evidence-based services and maintain competence through yearly education programs. If clients feel their service did not meet these standards, they have recourse through the college.
Dietitians look beyond fads and gimmicks to deliver reliable, life-changing advice.

As a dietitian, I partner with people and listen to hear what is important to them; the journey is different for everyone. I also have experience with my own food intolerance and understand the desire to feel better. It is possible.
