Nutritionist Resume

Human body assimilates different types of food materials as per the chemical properties of their ingredients. Generally, we can check the freshness and taste of a food item. However, we need an expert to know its nutritious value. Such experts are known as nutritionists.

A nutritionist’s common job task is to suggest appropriately nutritious diet to the clients. Nutritionists generally work independently and counsel their clients for accurate nutritional quantities of food contents. A nutritionist job profile is similar to that of a dietitian. However, a dietitian’s common approach is to serve the weight gain/reduction demands by the clients, where as a nutritionist deals with all types of health problems related to the client’s diet.
