What is the difference between a registered dietitian (RD) and a nutritionist?
The quick answer:
Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist. The title "Registered Dietitian", "Professional Dietitian", and "Dietitian" are protected by law -- through provincial legislation -- so that only qualified practitioners who have met education qualifications can use that title.
