career in nutrition

Hey! I am totally interested in nutrition and am thinking about making a career out of it but I don’t really know what’s out there. I do know that I don’t want to write menus (ie: elderly homes) or work as a dietician in a hospital setting. Any other thoughts from those of you who are in the field?

Appreciate it!

I can only speak for myself, but if you’re interested in writing diets for athletes academia is the place to be. I started with a Bachelors degree in Kinesiology and am currently working on an M.Sc. in exercise physiology. In the meantime I operate an exercise and nutrition consulting business. If you look at Berardi he started out in academia. As an aside, the pay is pretty good too! :slight_smile:

That’s my two cents.

You could also write out diets for race horses.
