Dietitian

A Dietitian is the only nutrition profession that is regulated by law and it is CORU who regulate all Health and Social Care professions. Dietitians are trained to provide nutritional advice for medical conditions but can also advise on any nutrition-related issue that may be affecting you. Spectrum Nutrition’s team of Dietitians hold either a BSc or MSc in Dietetics and are registered with both CORU and INDI (link to https://www.indi.ie/).

If you have private medical insurance you may be eligible to claim up to 50% back so make sure to check your policy.

Nutritionist

Nutritionists are experts in providing advice to optimise health. They can provide advice where there is a pre-existing medical condition, however this should not be the principle reason for your visit. We have a team of highly qualified Nutritionists who hold either a BSc or MSc in Nutrition and are registered with a professional body, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands. Weight loss, energy boosting, sports nutrition and general improvement of diet and lifestyle are examples of what they can help with.

Dietitians and Nutritionists are too expensive

Spectrum Nutrition are not.

It can be expensive seeing a Dietitian or Nutritionist and that is where Spectrum Nutrition comes in. We aim to make nutritional advice accessible and affordable to all. We don’t believe in charging high fees as we believe that everyone should have access to reliable advice. We keep our consultations concise and to the point so that it doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg.

What if I prefer to use an App or online service?

A perfect solution if you are self-motivated.

Apps and online services are cheaper options and can work very well if you are the type of person who can stick to them and stay motivated by yourself. Unfortunately, the rise of diet-related conditions such as obesity and heart disease indicates that doing it by yourself is not always the best or most realistic option for everyone. Often just meeting with a qualified nutritional expert who is trained to help you overcome any obstacles can make the world of difference and they can help you to reach your goals once and for all.
