I am thinking about going back to school and getting an M.S. in nutrition/dietetics.

Would love to hear from anyone on these boards are certified and what their experience has been like.

My mother is a dietician and I am a food engineer, so we are both in the food industry. One thing I always here my mom say is that you have to be patient. You will constantly here people give you excuses for not eatin breakfast, only eating one meal, snacking, etc... After giving somebody a particular diet to follow, a lot of times they will deviate because they think it is "acceptable". So if you truly want to help people out with diabetes, cholesterol problems, lose/gain weight, etc... and if you can be patient with your clients, then by all means go for it
