Fish and Mercury Levels…is it Really a Big Deal?

Dietitian vs. Nutritionist: What's the Difference Anyway?

I get asked almost weekly if there’s really a difference between a “dietitian” and a “nutritionist”. The answer is yes and I’ll explain in a moment … but on a side note what’s funny to me is that people will actually argue that I am misspelling the word “dietitian”.
