Careers in Nutrition

Are you focused on healthy living? Do you want a career that helps others? Do you have an interest in food and cooking? If so, you may want to consider a career in nutrition.

Nutrition is one of the fundamental needs of a society. Eating nutritiously takes a lot of discipline and education. Unfortunately, much of America doesn't take nutrition very seriously, and thus we have what many call an obesity epidemic. Unfortunately, the American people aren't solely at fault for their own obesity. Food manufactures in this country and government regulators of the food industry are also to blame. Much of the food on the grocery shelves today is not very nutritious, but is filled with substances the body craves, like salt and fat. As a result, many people who think they are eating healthily are really filling their bodies with empty calories without much nutritional value.

Nutritionists help those who don't know much about the food they eat maintain healthy diets. They know what a body needs and what it doesn't, and are thus able to help people navigate through all the junk within a grocery store and find foods that are nutritionally balanced.

To begin a career in nutrition, you will probably need at least a bachelor's degree in the subject. A professional nutritionist must take basic classes in anatomy, biology, and chemistry, and more specialized classed concerning what certain substances do to the body. In order to practice in their field, they also generally have to log in a certain number of clinical hours under the supervision of a professional nutritionist.
