Just wanted to link to another weight loss tips article in which I have been quoted. The author, Hristina Byrnes got a number of nutrition professionals, both RDs and CNS to comment. For those who do not know, the CNS is another nutrition credential, albeit not as many of them, that is respectable in that it requires an actual nutrition science academic background and a graduate degree.
I would be eligible to sit for it, but I’ve been too busy to pursue it as of now. For more info on nutrition credentials, see some of the other post I did on nutritionist credentials. I also list all my degrees out for the sake of separating my expertise from people who get a weekend fitness nutrition certification. I think my clients appreciate this, but the people who take sham shortcut certifications don’t! 🙂
