I wonder, if one were to go to 3 different CF nutrition certs by 3 different presenters, whether the information they received would be consistent. I suspect I know the answer.
In a legal sense....nutrition and certification should not even be in the same sentence....as only someone has a RD/MD can legally tell someone specifically what to eat (such as specific foods/ratios/calories).
The word "certification" in the fitness industry is just a "resume" term to get more trainers to invest high amounts of money on more things. Nothing new, every single fitness certification organization has those little "certs". As somewhere out there, someone is certified to use a "Bosu ball" and "Resistance Bands".
