.....and why would that be a bad thing?
Trust me, if you heard the type of nutrition advice some doctors give their patients, you would be be blown away.
For instance, my dad is an overweight man who has a family history of colon cancer/disease. After finding a few benign polyps in his intestines, his doctor tells him to increase his consumption of snickers bars. The reason? Because they have peanuts, which have fiber that can decrease his risk of getting colon cancer.
As a registered dietitian, I was seriously stunned by the advice that was given to him and directed him to a more nutritionally sound diet.
But regarding your first post, can you go into more detail about what you said. It's hard to form an opinion on a conversation when it is only one-sided.
Furthermore, don't bash all RD's just because you had a bad experience with one. There are many well known and nationally recognized individuals, both male and female who are licensed as RD's, and to stereotype all the individuals in one profession in a manner in which you did was very unprofessional.
