I have friends who have used one and they came back with diets very similar to what i already eat.
I'm wondering if a nutritionist will look at my diet and tell me it's good or will they say...you should try to get more of this and it will help you in this way?
I'm wondering if it's similar to a coach. Most of us know how to train, but a coach normally gets you to the next level. Can a nutritionist do that too? Do they give you meal plans? How do they determine what you are lacking?
I've also listened to some speak and I guess I have never been impressed with them or their knowledge of dietary needs of endurance athletes.
I have had a few nutrition issues, lack of energy, but I normally know why. The only other issue I have is that I have gut issues w/in 30 min of the run after a long bike ride. I make a pit stop and am fine after that. Can a nutritionist help this problem?
I guess I don't really have any issues with my diet that I know of, so is it worthwhile to see one? And what is the difference between a nutrionist and a dietician? Which is better?
