BOUNTIFUL — Sometimes it seems that each week the media touts a nutritional claim that contradicts last week’s pearl of wisdom. For those looking to eat right, that can be frustrating.
Wondering where to sort fact from fiction? Consider consulting a registered dietitian (RD) or registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN).
“People need tools to make realistic eating behavior changes,” says Ethan A. Bergman, registered dietitian nutritionist and Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics President. “An RD or RDN can help you apply the principles of nutrition science into a healthy lifestyle.”
RDs and RDNs must meet stringent academic and professional requirements, and are trusted expert sources for science-based nutrition information.
