Hi, this is Rachael Richardson with Nutrolution Incorporated in South Beach, Florida. In this clip, we're talking about dietitians versus nutritionists. And so it's kind of an interesting subject in the field of nutrition world because registered dietitians actually are licensed nutritionists. However, there are people who practice as nutritionists who are not registered dietitians and they may not be licensed, either. So there's kind of that aspect going on, but as well, there's a connotation that's involved with calling yourself a dietitian versus nutritionist. So myself, personally, I'm a dietitian and a nutritionist. However, I refer to myself as a nutritionist. And the reason is that dietitians are tending in terms of the connotation and that...tending to work in places like hospital kitchens or hospitals on the clinical side or, you know, in school sector, working in the kitchens and looking at, really, the diet and the very, very specific parts, whereas nutritionists are...tend to be looking at the overall health picture, preventative nutrition wellness, and that kind of aspect of nutrition. This is Rachael with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida.
