Okay, I know this has been asked before, but I'd like to get a consensus on what this board thinks the best way to make a career out of nutrition (paleo/primal/WAP). Preferably, I'd like to become a provider in the arena of nutrition, but I'm noticing that there aren't too many options.
Some ideas out there are the NTA (nutritional therapy association) and perhaps going an RD route. or DC and "Functional Medicine Doc" or whatever. I'm my case, I'm already an RN, and do a ton of Diabetic Education (under ADA CW Bull). And everytime I go over the ADA literature it just makes me nuts. But I digress.
So the questions: Are any of you making a go of this as a career? And if so, what path did you take in terms of education and job/practice?
Any conventional medicine folks out there (NPs, MDs, PAs, RDs) who transitioned in to the evolutionary nutrition area as a career? I'd like to hear your thoughts on what it's like to practice.
Thanks, and sorry for the retread question, but I'm very passionate, and I'm feeling stiffled by the fact that there isn't just some university I can attend to get a degree in evolutionary nutrition (or something like that)
