Hi Josh,


Common undergraduate majors for prospective nutritionists include food and nutrition, clinical nutrition, dietetics and food service systems management. While some programs prepare students for registration as dietitians, others do not. Practical experience through an internship is common, while field experiences are often incorporated throughout these programs. Although coursework depends on the health and nutrition science major you choose, some topics you may learn about include:


Dietary systems management
Food science
Nutrition counseling
Nutrition education
Lifecycle nutrition
Epidemiology
Community nutrition
Food service administration
Biochemistry
Medical nutrition therapy

Hello
To study nutrition in general you are expected to like human body functioning or physiology as well as food chemistry and different diets. The nutrition itself is too vast. If you're interested in sports nutrition you might be expected to know about sports and players equally as much as you need to know nutrition. But if you're really passionate about becoming a nutritionist, no one started because they already knew everything
So you can start today. Just keep reading things about nutrition and related areas that excites you. You might find something that you can tireless work hard for. Choose it then when you're have explored enough and will not give up.
All the best
Nutritionist
