Sorry for the extreme delay in my reply, and thanks for your question.

There are no alternative accredited schools of nutrition, because most states basically accept as a standard whatever the ADA accepts. Bastyr ( is an accredited school in Washington state which combines standard nutrition with some alternative theories.

I don't agree with the ADA 100% either, but either we slog through accredited programs and accept the challenge, but come out with instant credibility, or we stay on the outside with no credibility whatsoever.

I chose to accept the challenge. If you are passionate about nutrition, then I suggest you take the challenge as well. Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
