Dietetics is the science of a balanced eating plan. If nutrition defines itself as the science, which analyzes the relationships between food and health, then dietetics adds a cultural dimension to it, linked to eating habits.

Nutrition is the science, which studies food and its effect on the human being, while dietetics is the study of the entirety of the rules, which must direct the feeding habits of the human being. Dietetics is a social “norm”, which varies according to epochs, civilizations, religions or beliefs, and naturally, individual nutritional knowledge. Today, following the effect of scientific development, two concepts tend to be interlinked. The dietetic “norm” is grounded in scientific knowledge, which does not cease to grow. Dietetics would be the most natural means of maintaining or reestablishing one's weight, and preserving or ameliorating one's health.
