Fitness and nutrition professionals are each bound by their own scope of practice laws related to providing individualized nutrition advice. It is the responsibility of every professional to learn of the regulations in their specific state, if any questions pertaining to their services are in question around these laws. While Evolution Nutrition’s meal planning tools (such as Fitness & Lite Edition) have been created with support from registered dietitians, it is not a substitute for expert individualized nutrition advice. Our goal is to provide users with a tool to deliver general non-medical nutrition education and meal plans.

In the end, for all professionals involved with helping clients achieve better health & wellbeing, education in nutrition, fitness and behavior modification, is key to helping your clients achieve their goals.
