What Is a Nutritionist?

You’ve probably heard about nutritionists before but don’t really know what they do in their respective workplace. If you want to become one, you probably have an idea or two about their line of work. 

Technically speaking, a nutritionist is an expert when it comes to food and nutrition. Most of the time, they give people pieces of advice on what kind of food to eat in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you have a fitness goal or a health-related goal, you can also ask for their help. 

You can usually find them in hospitals, nursing homes, and schools. Although there are some nutritionists who are self-employed and have their own business. 

Tasks of a Nutritionist

Nutritionists have several tasks. If you’re consulting a nutritionist, expect to get specific information on your daily food intake. 

Nutritionists also do the following:

  • Do an overall assessment on client’s nutritional needs and diet
  • Develop a meal plan in line with the client’s health goal
  • Explain the details of the meal plan to the client
  • Evaluate the client’s progress with respect to the meal plan

Specialisations

Just like every other profession, nutritionists can also have specialisations. There are three main specialisations:

    • Clinical Nutrition - nutritionists who work in clinical setting, dealing with in- and out-patients; they implement dietary and nutritional therapies. They often address medical issues. 
    • Community Nutrition - nutritionists who work in schools, government agencies, health maintenance organisations; they often address the specific needs of groups targeted by the programs they’re in.
  • Procedural Expertise - nutritionists who work in teams with doctors, nurses, social workers, and healthcare providers; they create treatments for disorders and intolerances. 

Importance of a Nutritionist 

There’s a stigma going around about nutritionists only working for action stars and supermodels. However, their profession is much more important than that. They’re not just simply helping people lose weight, but they also keep people in check. 

Most nutritionists know how to make your food healthy and delicious without adding unnecessary calories and ingredients. But more importantly, nutritionists also play an important role in hospitals, schools, etc. 

These professionals plan diet plans according to the specific groups they’re working with. For example, in schools, they plan out meals that are packed with nutrients beneficial for students. 

In hospitals, they carefully plan meals of each patient depending on their medical needs and problems. If you’re diabetic, your food will be cooked according to the nutrients you need and can’t eat. If you’re hypertensive, you’ll eat foods that aren’t going to increase your blood pressure.

As simple as this seems, their role is actually more important than you think. Without them, patients in hospitals and nursing homes might be in danger because of eating the wrong thing or the food not good for their diet. 

Challenges in Studying Nutrition

While it seems like a pretty easy course to study because it’s all about food, there are some challenges when it comes to studying this profession. Not only are they stigmatised as people who only prepare food for losing weight, they also have some internal challenges as well. 

Inaccurate Methodology

One of their challenges is inaccurate methodology. Since dieticians ask their patients or clients what they have consumed for the past few days or weeks, the answers of these people are most likely inaccurate since they surely didn’t measure their food intake much less take note of what they specifically ate.

This greatly affects how nutritionists assess their patients progress which leads to a few problems in terms of accuracy in dietary needs. 

Emerging Trends in Nutrition

We’ve probably heard a couple of diets here and there. And as much as these diets have been getting raves on social media, they’re not always healthy for people. This is one of the challenges that nutritionists have to deal with, especially since they know what’s good and bad for you. 

Once the nutritionist deals with a patient who has been following a diet that’s not really founded on medical studies, it’s pretty hard undoing the mistakes of that patient. Most of the time, nutritionists deal with problems due to this kind of anecdotal diet.

There are a couple of schools in Vancouver that have programs and classes on nutrition. If you plan on pursuing nutrition as a profession, you might want to check these schools and the programs that they offer, respectively.
