    I would say that:

    1) Get a nutritionist that ethically suits you. If you are into organic, find someone who holds the same beliefs as you.

    2) Anyone can claim "nutritionist," but the certification is RD or Registered Dietitian. I don't think that just because they are a RD makes them better, per se, but it just guarantees that they went through a whole program (including a 600 hour NON-PAID INTERNSHIP) icon_eek.gif

    3) I would maybe try and find a personal trainer/nutritionist. They'll probably have more insight.

    4) If the nutritionist is fat, run.



    I am in school to be one, so that is what I have gathered thus far.
