I currently work full time in a job I don't enjoy. I love food and healthy living and would love to get into the food industry helping others to eat well.

Does anyone know how I can study to become a nutritionist, i can;t afford to do another degree. I understand only dietitians need to have a degree.

Also if there are any nutritionists out there what sort of money can I earn as a self employed adviser?

I looked into this a while ago and you definetly need a degree to advise people about nutrition. You could of course go down the unqualified "nutritionist" route but that makes you no better that "Dr" Gillian McKeith and those Clean Eating pretty posh skinny girls with art history degrees popular ATM.
