Do you want to see a dietitian or a nutritionist?

In Belgium, the title of "dietitian" is protected by the law. It means that the workers of this field need a certification issued by the authorities. As members of the medical staff, these experts follow a a three-year course and received at the end 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, that is to say a dietitian. Otherwise, if you are simply looking for a new diet which will help you feel good or sleep better, the help of a nutritionist can be enough.
