I asked about the opinions people have about RDs in a supportive, fitness-focused Facebook Group. 46% of responses were negative. There is no amount of legislation that is going to make 46% of people say, “I really need help with food and I think RDs suck but since it’s the law I’ll go to the RD who won’t help me instead of the nutrition coach who will help me.”
TLDR: you can now offer services and activities to people who are generally healthy and not under a doctor’s care as long as you are careful about how you represent yourself. See the NEW laws and walk through what it means for nutrition services and activities in Florida and when you should consider a licensed nutritionist.
