About Chicago-Specific Registered Dietitians

There are several steps that Chicago students must complete to become registered dietitians with expert knowledge in the nutrition field. 

  • Students will need to earn their bachelor’s degree, which is essential to building the foundation of their nutritional knowledge. 
  • Students of the University of Illinois in Chicago can enroll in an accredited Coordinated Program that pairs academic classes with supervised practical experience. If students don’t apply and enroll in this program, they will need to complete a separate dietetic internship. 
  • After completing their bachelor's degrees and supervised practical experience, students will need to pass their Registration Examination for Dietetics. 
  • Once students have passed their exam, they can apply for licensure as a dietitian in Illinois.

Get Over the Chicago Hurdles and Get Back to Health

Reaching your health goals in Chicago isn’t easy, especially if you’re working on your own, without a nutritionist to help you make a change in your health habits. There are several ways that Chicago makes it difficult for people to change their health habits for the better.

Food deserts

Because of the food deserts and lack of access to nutritious foods, many Chicago residents have to turn to convenience stores to provide healthier options for food. An inability to get to a supermarket means that people will likely eat less nutrient-dense food and instead settle for less nutritious foods. Supermarkets provide access to a large number of different items, including healthier options of foods than can be found at convenience stores, like premade meals, healthier snacks, or fresh produce.

Unsafe infrastructure

Roads and bridges in Illinois have been given the title of the worst in the country. This state serves as a large transportation hub in the United States, and the decline in the condition of roads and bridges is a testament to that. Some people may have access to one grocery store that meets all their nutritional needs, and some people may need to travel over a large area to get all they need. The crumbling bridges and roads don’t make it easy when it comes to getting access to nutritious foods.

Frequently Asked Questions

Full Transparency Pros and Cons

Online meal plans

Pros

  • Online family meal planning tools and meal plans can help you plan and save money. If you are planning for family meal planning, you are likely making a list of all of your necessary food purchases, which can help you cut down on the amount of money spent on unplanned food purchases. 
  • You can save time in the long run by planning all at once. When you plan, you will need to set some time aside to figure out your meals, but once it is planned, you can save time on checking the fridge and pantry for dinner ideas when you are hungry.

Cons

  • Online meal plans do not usually account for certain food restrictions unless you do a lot of sifting through online search results. If you eat a specialized diet, like a vegan diet or a diet to regulate blood sugar, you may have difficulty finding information specific to you. 
  • It could be expensive to use some online meal plans, especially if you plan to purchase an online meal plan with ready-made meals and snacks.

In-person nutritionists

Pros

  • Meeting in person with a nutritionist can be a good option for anyone who doesn't enjoy video calls or for someone who does not have reliable internet. You cannot join video calls with a nutrition expert without a reliable internet connection.

Cons

  • Online nutritional counseling sessions offer a sense of convenience that you cannot get from an in-person health expert. There are many things related to your health that you cannot do from home, like dental cleanings. But meeting with a health expert is something you can do at home with reliable internet. 
  • You can avoid a long drive or traffic if you work with an online nutrition expert instead of an in-person one. 

Diet companies 

Pros

  • Some diet companies give you access to membership perks, like helpful tips or workout videos. You may also access food logs, weight trend trackers, and other features. 
  • Some diet companies offer premade nutrition plans that may cost less than live nutrition counseling sessions but will not be premade for each client.

Cons

  • Some diet companies focus on helping their clients lose weight. For these companies, that may mean simply cutting calories. Cutting calories or food groups is not sustainable and not an effective way to improve your health. 
  • Sometimes, diet companies are not focused on nutrition but instead use elements of fad diets. Fad diets do not create lasting results for people and can waste money. Unfortunately, fad diets may also encourage people to develop disordered eating, which is harmful.
