NUTRITION SERVICES

Do you have Nutrition Confusion? RecSports offers Nutrition Services by a registered and licensed dietitian to enhance and empower overall wellness. One-on-one nutrition counseling is available to UF students and the UF community, nutrition workshops throughout the semester, and group presentations to any UF-affiliated organization within Alachua County.

WHY Nutrition COUNSELING?

  • Low energy?
  • Weight concerns or preoccupations?
  • Confused in the kitchen?

Let a Registered Dietitian sort out conflicting nutrition advice using compassion and a science-based approach.

WHAT IS ONE-ON-ONE NUTRITION COUNSELING?

Meet with a Registered Dietitian (RD) in a private and confidential setting to discuss and strategize how to accomplish individualized and personalized nutrition goals.

  • Initial sessions are 60 minutes.
  • Follow-up sessions are 30-40 minutes.

During this time the RD will ask pertinent questions that address the clients’ specific nutrition goals, motivations, barriers, lifestyle choices, and preferences, while creating a realistic plan to achieve nutrition goals.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REGISTERED DIETITIAN AND A NUTRITIONIST?

The term dietitian is a legally protected title that can only be used by individuals who have completed all of the requirements as set forth by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This includes a minimum baccalaureate degree with the necessary didactic course work, a 1200-hour supervised and accredited internship, a national registration exam, and annual continuing education.  Approximately 50% of current RDNs hold advanced degrees and by 2024, all candidates that sit for the national registration exam will be required to have earned a graduate degree.

Conversely, the term nutritionist can be used by individuals that may or may not have formally studied nutrition, and hold unregulated credentials. In some states the term nutritionist is also protected through licensure laws and can only be used by dietitians.

All dietitians are nutritionists, not all nutritionists are dietitians.
