What does a Registered Dietitian do?

Registered Dietitians are uniquely trained to translate complex scientific evidence into practical solutions that support Canadians in improving their health and preventing disease.

A Registered Dietitian will work with you to develop an action plan that meets your specific dietary and lifestyle needs, following a thorough review of your medical, social, and dietary history. 

What’s the difference between a Registered Dietitian and a Nutritionist?

The title “Registered Dietitian” is protected by law, meaning that only those who have met the above criteria are able to practice as a dietitian. “Nutritionist” is not a protected title in the province of Ontario, meaning that anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, without being liable for the advice they provide.


Registered Dietitians are experts in food and nutrition.

To practice in the province of Ontario, Registered Dietitians must meet the following criteria:

  • Possess a Bachelor’s of Science in Nutrition from an accredited University
  • Complete a dietetic internship which involves a minimum of 1250 hours of supervised practice
  • Demonstrate competency to practice as a Registered Dietitian by passing a registration exam
  • Be a member, in good standing, with the College of Dietitians of Ontario
  • Commit to ongoing professional development

The Registered Dietitian at the Nepean Sports Medicine & Physiotherapy Centre specializes in the following areas of nutrition:

  • Weight Management
  • Pre/Post Bariatric Nutrition Support
  • Eating Disorders & Emotional Eating
  • Plant-based Nutrition (Vegan, Vegetarian, Raw)
  • Disease Management (e.g. Diabetes, Heart Disease, Hypertension)
  • Gastrointestinal Health
  • Sports Nutrition
