Yes, you can pursue dietician course after B.Com. Diet and nutrition course is mainly based on science subjects. As you have studied commerce, it is very difficult to study any master degree course in the dietician and nutrition field. Therefore, you can study certificate or diploma course in Diet and Nutrition. Following courses are available for the B.Com candidates;

IGNOU - Diploma in Nutrition and Health Education (DNHE) - Official Website

IGNOU - Certificate in Food and Nutrition (CFN) - Official Website

VLCC – Official Website

VLCC Courses:

Diploma in Dietetics, Health and Nutrition

Certificate Course in Nutrition and Dietetics

Certificate Course Sports and Fitness Nutrition

Certificate Course in Child Care and Nutrition

Sorry to inform you that you are not eligible to pursue Dietetics and Nutrition course as because you have completed you bachelor degree in commerce stream and to become a dietician, a candidate should have studied home science or dietetics and nutrition, food science/technology courses at the graduate and postgraduate levels.
In order to pursue bachelor degree course in Dietetics and Nutrition, a candidate should have passed 12th standard or its equivalent examination in science subjects covering physics, chemistry, home science and biology from a recognized board.
