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.

I kept picturing if I did get the courage to make it on stage without running away, I would end up reenacting Agnes’ Mother’s Day speech from Despicable Me 2. Everything would come out monotone and I would say my three minute speech in one breath.
