THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH ELEVATE YOUR PLATE®
A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) is a food and nutrition expert who has: completed a Bachelor’s Degree at minimum, completed an accredited supervised practice program, and has passed a national examination.
All RDN’s are nutritionists but most nutritionists are not RDN’s.
At Elevate your Plate®, you get the best of both worlds working with an RDN who also happens to be a NASM Certified Personal Trainer.
