A career in the field of nutrition typically involves dealing with individual clients on a case-by-case basis. Your daily responsibilities in the field will vary depending on where you work, but typical duties for a nutritionist or dietitian include:
Assessing client health
Formulating realistic and worthwhile goals for your clients
Crafting the right diet and exercise plans for individual clients
Support and motivate clients with regular meetings
Keep track of client progress
It’s important to remember that there are many different types of clients for nutritionists and dietitians, and who you focus your practice on will help dictate what your responsibilities look like.
You might work with patients who suffer from diabetes, patients with eating disorders, or patients simply pursuing a healthier lifestyle. No matter who you work with, you will be a key pillar of support and motivation.
Being a nutritionist involves more than just telling people what to eat—you’ll need to take a holistic approach to health. When you first meet a client, you’ll talk with them to assess their overall health, from diet and exercise to things like sleeping habits. Once you’ve gotten to know your client’s lifestyle, you can begin to formulate a “treatment” plan with them, based on realistic needs and goals.
Your main focus will be on crafting the right diet plan, but you’ll also act as a sort of counselor for your client, meeting with them regularly to discuss their progress and any improvements in overall health. You will also be responsible for supporting and motivating your clients as they adjust to their new diets and lifestyles.
