Everything About Dietetic For Weight Loss (and other weight concerns)

Dietitians adhere to strict professional standards to help clients achieve their goals safely and sustainably.

Finding the Right Dietitian for Weight-Related Concerns (Weight Loss or Weight Gain)

To find the right dietitian for you, consider the following tips:

  • Ask for recommendations: Start by asking your primary care provider, friends, family, or colleagues for referrals. They may have personal experiences or know of professionals with a track record of success.

  • Verify credentials: Ensure that the professional you're considering is a registered dietitian (RD) or registered dietitian(RDN) and has experience in weight management.

  • Research their approach: All dietitian used evidence-based strategies and focus on long-term success, rather than quick fixes or fad diets. Some dietitians use a more traditional 'weight-normative' approach with a special focus on the weight itself, while other dietitians take a more 'weight-inclusive' approach, focusing on health behaviours to improve physical, behavioural, and psychological outcomes. In recent years, the weight-inclusive-approach has become more popular among dietitians. Choose the style and approach that resonates most with you.

  • Consider compatibility: It's essential to find a dietitian you feel comfortable with and trust, as this relationship will play a significant role in the outcomes of your sessions.

  • Check availability and location: Determine whether you prefer in-person consultations or virtual appointments via tele-health, and ensure that their schedule aligns with yours.

Disclaimer: Nutritionist vs Dietitian

In Canada, there is sometimes a difference between the terms Dietitian and nutritionist. While both titles can be use interchangeably in some provinces, this is not the case in others.

The title ‘Dietitian’ is protected by law across Canada in every province. The term ‘nutritionist’ however, is only a protected title in Alberta, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

Only nutrition professionals who are regulated and have protected titles have a legal scope of practice which includes: providing individualized nutrition counselling, medical nutrition therapy, and nutrition education to individuals with specific health concerns.

That said, while the term "nutritionist" is sometimes used on this website, it is important to note that we only work with licensed Registered Dietitians in good standing with their provincial regulatory bodies. That means you can be assured that all of our partners providing nutrition counselling meet the education and ethical standards set by all of the provincial regulatory bodies across Canada.

We strongly recommend that you consult with a Registered Dietitian (or other recognized healthcare professional such as a doctor) when you are considering making any significant dietary changes.

Rest assured that on Online Nutrition, every nutrition professional is vetted to confirm they are a Registered Dietitian in good standing with their provincial regulatory body.
