According to Manuel Villacorta, who’s is a registered Dietitian Nutritionist, also, a speaker, author and founder of WholeBodyReboot.com
“I decided to interview 10 dietitians across the country who are influential movers and shakers in the nutrition and dietetics field. I asked them for the advice that they not only provide to their clients, but also practice in their own lives”.
So let’s now introduce these nutrition experts with their top nutrition recommendations.
Mr. Villacorta, 03 September 2016; wrote, National Nutrition Month is the time of year to get perspective and focus on issues pertaining to your nutrition and health. 9th March, just so happens to be Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, a day to celebrate the contributions of dietitians all around the country.
But what exactly are dietitians? These food experts have proven their dedication by earning a bachelor’s degree in nutrition or a related field, by completing an intensive supervised practice averaging one year, and by passing a registration exam required by the Academy of Dietetics and Nutrition (the world’s largest organization dedicated to food and nutrition).
Many registered dietitian nutritionists (RDN) hold graduate degrees, and some are even certified nutrition specialists in areas such as renal nutrition, diabetes education, or even sports nutrition. Registered dietitians work in settings such as hospitals or inpatient care facilities, and many other have private practices.
Others work in research, in community and public health centers, as teachers of nutrition, or as consultants to the corporate world for wellness programs, consumer affairs, product development, and such.

Plus this eating pattern is better for the planet, too.”
