There are many people out there that need nutrition help.  Some need someone else to help them on their weight loss or healthy lifestyle journey.  But these services all take money.  How much does a nutritionist cost?

A quick google search will bring us to a variety of articles, all with different conclusions if honey is better than sugar. Corey Whelan, with review from Natalie Butler, breaks the two sweeteners down to simple pro's and con's, but their sprawling multi-page article fails to come to any meaningful conclusion, writing: These two widely used sweeteners have very different tastes and textures. You may...
