What is a Registered Dietitian?

A registered dietitian is a healthcare professional who has completed a nutrition-related degree which includes a rigorous course of study in the scientific areas of biochemistry, human anatomy and physiology classes.  They must also complete an internship, or go through an approved coordinated undergraduate program that combines supervised practice and the last two years of college.  Then all dietitians must pass a national board examination before they can receive the credentials R.D.
