Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Registered Dietitian?
Registered Dietitians are specialists in human metabolism and nutrition. Highly recommended by most physicians, these health practitioners require a Bachelor's degree and 1-year internship before they take the National Board Exam for their discipline. Most states require licensure to practice medical nutrition but, Arizona does not so, it is very important to investigate the qualifications of anyone you talk with about your metabolism. NutriCoachAZ LLC only employs Registered Dietitians with a minimum of 5 years clinical experience to ensure your safety.
