Nutrition Plan Testimonial
Nutrition Plan Testimonial
I appreciate all of the excellent support and direction from Jason Jones at Example Fitness. Following the Custom Nutrition Plan, I have lost 6 lbs. in 5 days, which is truly amazing and a first for me! I am looking forward to a successful completion of my weight loss goals.
Thanks again, Jason. I appreciate it and you very much.
For our personalized meal plans, foods are divided into six groups: starch, fruit, milk, fat, vegetable, and meat. Our plan sets a serving size (amount) for each food, and within each group, each serving has a similar amount of calories, protein, carbohydrate, and fat.
Example Fitness Training does not employ certified Nutrition & Wellness Consultants, Registered Dietitians, or Medical Doctors. We are providing opinion-based (not evidence-based) advice. Only physicians and registered dietitians can provide medical nutritional therapy. The above nutrition plan is our advice for a “heart-healthy diet” and is to be treated as such.
We at EFT can discuss the pillars of good nutrition with clients and give tools and strategies to improve their daily eating habits.
Again, we don’t “prescribe,” “treat,” or “diagnose.” And we definitely don’t try to “cure.” The above is our advice on healthy nutrition eating.
The above is our advice on nutrition care ONLY.
Summary of Current California Law:
This is a registration law and registers dietitians only. To be state registered you must meet requirements to be an RD. State registration gives you the right to use the terms dietitian, dietician, registered dietitian, registered dietician, or the initials RD, or any other terms or initials that imply you are registered. However, there is no licensure/registration requirement for providing nutrition care. The law explicitly states that nutritionists with a Master’s degree or above in a clinical nutrition field, from an accredited college or university, are eligible for insurance reimbursement (when available) for nutrition services, when the client has been referred by a physician.

Currently, personal trainers are not licensed in any state in the United States. If there is an exclusive scope of practice nutrition licensing law (red or orange on the map) in a state, then it is illegal for personal trainers to provide nutrition counseling unless they obtain a nutrition license, or fall under an explicit exemption, which is rare. Practicing personal trainers MUST review the scope of the nutrition law in their state including all exceptions and exemptions to assess whether they are legally able to use nutrition tools in their practice. A nutritional consultation involves building a detailed picture of your lifestyle, eating habits, medical history, and any concerns you may have about your health.
