What's really going on with nutrition?

—The application to nutrition in real life.


Advanced Nutrition Course (ANC)

NNFA's Advanced Nutrition Course is, hands down, the most useful and comprehensive nutrition course available today. It's the first of its kind. Just as meticulous as our NNFA's Functional Anatomy Course, our nutritional course will take you through the macro and microstructures of food. It goes way beyond just "food is energy" or "counting macronutrients".  You will learn that carbs, protein, and fat all have different properties that are anabolic, catabolic, or so much more than just "energy". By the time you graduate this course you will possess the knowledge as well as the applicational competencies to help clients in the health, fitness, nutrition or sports world. You will be an advanced nutrition coach.


A nutritionist, according to Wikipedia, a nutritionist is a person who advises others on matters of food and nutrition and their impacts on health. Some people specialize in particular areas, such as sports nutrition, public health, or animal nutrition, among other disciplines.


The path to becoming a nutritionist depends on education, experience, and location. Regarding the latter, many states have formal licensing and certification requirements in order to work in the field. Even in states that do not have specific requirements, employers and clients may give preference in hiring to people with qualifying credentials.

Nutritionists help their clients stay focused on their goals by providing regular encouragement and  motivation. They discuss the pros and cons of specific diets and food trends, and what impact those have on health. Depending on education level, a nutritionist may help test for specific food allergies or autoimmune disorders such as celiac disease (gluten intolerance). Educating people on health is an important job in today’s society, especially in the United States, where obesity has reached an all-time high. Nutritionists can work as self-employed entrepreneurs, as well as in hospital settings, schools and a variety of holistic and alternative medicine environments. Depending on their level of education, nutritionists can be in high demand in food and health-related businesses.


Nutritionist Salary Details According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nutritionists earned a median annual wage of $56,950 in 2014, while the top ten percent of the profession made $79,840 or more. The agency also found that on average, nutritionists earned an hourly rate of $27.38.

Career Outlook for Nutritionists According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job opportunities for nutritionists are expected to increase by 21 percent between 2012 and 2022. That growth, the agency reports, is much higher than the average for all occupations. This increase has been attributed to the nationwide concern about rising obesity rates and the illnesses that can be exacerbated by obesity—such as diabetes and heart disease. In addition, as people live longer, there is a need for nutritionists to work with geriatric patients in facilities such as nursing homes. Trends toward eating locally grown, organic and non-genetically modified foods have also opened up opportunities for nutritionists who specialize in those areas. States that are experiencing the most growth in nutritionist jobs include:

  1. 30.1%   Texas

  2. 29.9%   Utah

  3. 28.2%   Colorado

  4. 27.7%   Kentucky

  5. 25.5%   Arizona

  6. 23.7%   Idaho

  7. 21.7%   Oklahoma

  8. 21.6%   New Hampshire

  9. 21.3%   Montana

  10. 21.1% Massachusetts
