The best nutrition experts on Instagram all have something in common and no, it’s not a shared obsession with posting photos of healthy food online. It’s that they’re all qualified, certified and trained to dish out nutritional advice. Alongside their food photography skills they also have the creds to back up what they’re recommending.
However, with so many different titles and terms used by professionals – nutritionist, nutritional therapist, dietitian, sports dietitian and registered dietitian to name a few – it can be hard to know who’s worth one’s salt.
The major difference between dieticians and nutritionists lies not in what they do, but how they operate. A dietitian is a type of nutritionist, but a nutritionist is not a dietitian. While somebody must earn accreditation to call themselves a dietitian, the term nutritionist is not protected by any regulations, and as such anyone can label themselves a nutritionist so it’s important to do your research before picking a nutritionist that’s right for you.
The best nutritionists & dieticians to follow on instagram are as follows.
