  What is a Registered Dietitian (RD)?  
  A Registered Dietitian is a food and nutrition expert who has met the minimum academic and professional requirements to qualify for the credential “RD.” In addition to RD credentialing, many states have regulatory laws for dietitians and nutrition practitioners. State requirements frequently are met through the same education and training required to become an RD.  

  What is the difference between a Registered Dietitian (RD) and a nutritionist?  
  A RD is qualified by education and a national examination to be considered the food and nutrition expert. A RD has met the minimum academic and experience requirements to qualify for the credential "RD." In addition to RD credentialing, 48 states have regulations for dietitians and nutrition practitioners. State requirements are met through the same education and training required to become an RD. In other instances, individuals may use the title nutritionist, nutrition counselor or nutrition advisor, regardless of their education and credentials.  

  What Are Educational and Professional Requirements for a Registered Dietitian?  
  Registered Dietitians must meet the following criteria to earn the RD credential:
  1. Receive a bachelor’s degree from a U.S. regionally accredited university or college and course work approved by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education of the American Dietetic Association
  2. Complete a CADE-accredited supervised practice program at a health-care facility, community agency or a foodservice corporation or combined with undergraduate or graduate studies. Typically, a practice program will run six to 12 months in length.
  3. Pass a national examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration
  4. Complete continuing professional educational requirements to maintain registration.
Some RDs hold additional certifications in specialized areas of practice, such as pediatric or renal nutrition, nutrition support and diabetes education. These certifications are awarded through CDR, the credentialing agency for ADA and other medical and nutrition organizations and are recognized within the profession but are not required.

  What Do You Study to Become a Registered Dietitian?  
  Students wishing to become Registered Dietitians study subjects including food and nutrition sciences, foodservice systems management, business, economics, computer science, culinary arts, sociology, communications, biochemistry, physiology, microbiology, anatomy and chemistry.  

  Reasons to use a Registered Dietitian (RD)?  
  American Dietetic Association’s Top Ten Reasons Why Consulting with a Registered Dietitian Can Benefit You.
  1. You have diabetes, cardiovascular problems or high blood pressure.

  2. An RD serves as an integral part of your health-care team by helping you safely change your eating plan without compromising taste or nutrition.

  3. You are thinking of having or have had gastric bypass surgery.

  4. A registered dietitian will help you learn to eat again. Since your stomach can only manage small servings, it’s a challenge to get the right amount of nutrients in your body. An RD will work with you and your physician to develop an eating plan for your new needs.

  5. You have digestive problems.

  6. A registered dietitian will work with your physician to help fine-tune your diet so you are not aggravating your condition with fried foods, too much caffeine or carbonation.

  7. You’re pregnant or trying to get pregnant.

  8. A registered dietitian can help make sure you get nutrients like folate, especially during the first three months of pregnancy, lowering your newborn’s risk for neural tube or spinal cord defects.

  9. You need guidance and confidence for breastfeeding your baby.

  10. A registered dietitian can help make sure you’re getting enough iron, vitamin D, fluoride and B vitamins for you and your little one.

  11. Your teenager has issues with food and eating healthfully.

  12. A registered dietitian can assist with eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia and overweight issues.

  13. You need to gain or lose weight.

  14. A registered dietitian can suggest additional calorie sources for healthy weight gain or a restricted-calorie eating plan plus regular physical activity for weight loss while still eating all your favorite foods.

  15. You’re caring for an aging parent.

  16. A registered dietitian can help with food or drug interaction, proper hydration, special diets for hypertension and changing taste buds as you age.

  17. You want to eat smarter.

  18. A registered dietitian can help you sort through misinformation; learn how to read labels at the supermarket; discover that healthy cooking is inexpensive, learn how to eat out without ruining your eating plan and how to resist workplace temptations.

  19. You want to improve your performance in sports.

  20. A registered dietitian can help you set goals to achieve results — whether you’re running a marathon, skiing or jogging with your dog.
