What exactly is a Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) and how can they help?

A CEDRD is a Registered Dietitian who has engaged in thousands of advanced practice-documented and supervised hours in the field of eating disorders. In short, CEDRDs pass 5 total proctored exams to become certified. Most importantly, it is a credential spearheaded and regulated by the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. A CEDRD has proven knowledge and expertise in eating disorder nutrition counseling. Because eating disorders are complex medical and psychiatric issues, they require a treatment team with a well-informed and well-trained expert in eating disorder nutrition counseling. I am a CEDRD certified by the IAEDP.

What is the difference between a nutritionist and a registered dietitian?

A Registered Dietitian is a credentialed nutrition expert who must go through an extensive, highly medical-based internship and pass a national credential examination. Registered Dietitians have to obtain at least a Bachelor’s in Nutrition/Dietetics in addition to internship/testing.
