The minimum age to become an RD is 18 years old. Candidates must have a relevant bachelor’s degree and complete a Didactic Program in Dietetics that is approved by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics.
Candidates much complete at least 1,200 hours of work experience under the direct supervision of a registered dietitian. California doesn’t have a state license for registered dietitians, but RDs must pass an exam and register with the Commission on Dietetic Registration. They must renew their registration every five years and complete 75 hours of continuing professional education during that time.
In a big city like Los Angeles, you have access to countless resources, diet centers, and nutrition counselors. But all those choices don’t necessarily mean that it’s easy to find a specialist or the right plan for you, especially if you’re looking for improved sports performance instead of a weight loss program. Our goal is to help you overcome the unique challenges Los Angeles presents so you can improve your health.
Many parts of Los Angeles are saturated with fast-food restaurants and small convenience stores packed with highly processed, pre-packaged foods. Takeout and food delivery apps are also very prevalent. Those meals can seem like the best option for overworked professionals and families juggling busy schedules. Without easy access to healthier items, many people rely on processed foods which are quick and simple but detrimental to one’s health.
Problems with Los Angeles’s public transportation system have existed for a long time, but the Covid-19 pandemic has worsened them. For many LA residents, public transport isn’t available. Meanwhile, Los Angeles is legendary for its traffic issues. Without an easy and reliable way to get to the supermarket, it’s hard for many residents to purchase and store the fresh ingredients they need to prepare healthy meals.
Although some parts of Los Angeles offer easy access to supermarkets, butcher shops, and farmers’ markets with a variety of fresh ingredients, that’s not the case everywhere in this vast city. Studies show that many parts of Los Angeles, especially in the south and east, qualify as food deserts with minimal access to healthy food.
