The main differences between a dietitian and a nutritionist
In Belgium, the title of "dietitian" is protected by the law. Indeed, each professional in this field is required to receive a certification issued by the authorities. The educational training consists in a three-year study, which leads to a Bachelor’s Degree.
In contrast, a nutritionist is unacknowledged by itself; you are not assured to visit an expert. Nevertheless, a physician or a dietitian can possess the title of "nutritionist" added to their Bachelor’s certificate or Doctor’s Degree. Indeed, medical studies give access to a “clinical nutrition” specialisation, students of biomedical science can even study “human nutrition”.
Concerning the services they provide, the dietitian will follow known rules and scientific programs in order to help you to find a life balance. They are in constant exchange with doctors, researchers and so on to provide a service based on the latest discoveries in this field. Their advice addresses a whole group of individuals. By contrast, a nutritionist may give some pieces of advice for specific diets such as gluten intolerant or vegetarian eaters.
Indeed, if you suffer from a serious disease linked to weight (diabetes, obesity...) or from eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia...), you are more likely to follow the advice of a professional such as a dietitian. Otherwise, to follow a new diet which will help you feel or sleep better, you may be satisfied with the help of a nutritionist.
