Sugar. One word, yet it elicits a wide range of complex emotions. Joy. Celebration. Pleasure. Defeat. Guilt. Shame. Which emotions do you associate with sugar? How is it that this one word has the power to grip us?
My guess is that you are asking “why should I listen to you over the astronomical amount of nutrition information I am bombarded with daily”? Ok, maybe in fewer words, but let me answer by telling you who I am and my stance on nutrition.
· A Registered Dietitian. That means I have a University degree in Human Nutrition, completed internship, and am accountable to a professional college.
· Fascinated with nutrition because we are constantly learning, which means what we know now will continue to evolve. My mission is to provide you with the most accurate story that we know, not experiential claims or agenda-driven statements.
· Passionate about informed choice and health promotion. I believe that you need reliable information to make health choices. However, we also need to act together to create an environment that supports healthy choices and makes health accessible to all.
