What is Intuitive Eating?

Intuitive eating is an approach to nutrition and wellness that focuses on mindfulness, listening to the body and creating a healthy relationship with food. Unlike traditional "diets" and "weight loss plans," the focus of intuitive eating is NOT on the scale or calorie intake. Success is instead measured by increased energy, improved mood, and becoming more in-tune with the body.

What is a CEDRD?

Professionals who demonstrate clinical expertise through education, experience and a rigorous examination are eligible for the Traditional Certification as a Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian (CEDRD). Individuals with iaedp Certification designations (CEDS, CEDRD, CEDCAT, or CEDRN) are health care professionals who have met rigorous educational and skill requirements, have accumulated a minimum number of hours of qualifying work experience, have made a commitment to stay abreast of current developments in the field through continuing education, and have agreed to comply with the Association's ethical principles. 

How does a nutritionist differ from a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN)?

“Nutritionist” is an unregulated term - that said, it can be used by anyone who chooses to identify as one. RDNs must have at least a bachelor’s degree (including required dietetics curricula) as well as 1200 hours of supervised practice, known as the “dietetic internship.” Prospective RDNs must then pass the registration exam. The training and practice of RDNs relies on current, evidence-based research.
