I am a Certified Nutrition and Wellness Counselor which means I completed a 6 month course that was developed by an accredited school and scored a 90% or higher score on the 300+ question certification exam. 

Another  qualification I think is important is that I have struggled with weight management and  have sucessfully maintained a weight loss of more than 50 pounds for more than one year.
