Weight loss can be a personal and sensitive topic but it is also one of the most 'googled' topics. Particularly in today's society, nutritional advice is easily accessible but unfortunately not all of this advice comes from reputable or evidence based sources.
There are many people who claim to be experts in nutrition yet have very limited knowledge and offer no protection to the public. Therefore, choosing the right person to seek help and advice from can sometimes be a confusing task. That’s why it’s even more important to understand what a Dietitian does and why to choose a Dietitian.
