No, I’m studying to become a radiologist. :) But I have a huge interest in nutrition, fitness, and health and whatnot. I’m overweight so it’s a direct application to my life. And I don’t know.. I just find a lot of it fascinating.
But if you really like it then go for it. I think it’s definitely a fast-growing field with obesity constantly on the rise.
PS: Go for the registered dietitian if you want to get into the field. A certified nutritionist is nothing but a college kid with a couple college credits under his/her belt that passed a certification exam to prove they paid attention. LOL. I never knew the difference before. But yeah, definitely do your research. And definitely talk to your guidance counselor. Even better: talk to some of the advisors at a couple of colleges you’re thinking about applying to. They will give you a better understanding about the major. :)
