Jason, Rebekah and Danielle are right on! Unless the guidelines have changed in the state of California any one can call themselves a “Nutritionist”, this is especially true for people who work at supplement stores. Dietitian’s are registered both here and in all other states and go thru stringent testing and that’s AFTER obtaining their Bachlor’s/Master’s Degree.
Although I do have my degree, in the public eye I am the same as the person who works in the wholefoods/gnc,etc stores…only I’m not as knowledgeable about the products that they sell Haha! I hope that helps!
