Nutrition Advisor

There is typically some confusion in the difference between a nutrition advisor and a dietician. While both aim to assist individuals in achieving optimal health through diet, a dietician has additional qualifications that allow them to provide medical nutritional therapy. A nutrition advisor is responsible for working with their clients to create meaningful change in their lifestyle with nutritional advice and support. This includes working one-on-one with clients to provide services such as diet and exercise plans, progress tracking and implementing a course of action or referring them to medical health professionals when necessary.

Nutrition Coach

Follow your passion for health and fitness with a career as a nutrition coach. A nutrition coach’s role focuses on helping their clients build practices and make changes to their diet to optimise their health. There are many reasons why an individual would seek help from a nutrition coach; they might have a fitness or performance goal they’re working towards, or simply a desire to improve their quality of life and prevent diet-related disease. As a nutrition coach, you’ll have a solid understanding of nutrition science and how to tailor a program to meet an individual’s specific needs, as well as being able to successfully motivate them to stay on track.
