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? I think it depends on the person. But you should be looking for registered dietitians, not nutritionists. Anyone can claim to be a nutritionist, but those who attended...

"Unhealthy" food is often full of fat, sugar, and salt. These are all things that are totally necessary for our survival and historically have been hard to come by, so our bodies make the psychological reward for consuming them great. The problem is that these days they're not hard to get, and our bodies haven't had enough time to adjust to this, so we're inclined...

Humankind has survived as long as it has in part because of our ability to adapt to the environment. Our digestive systems are able to eat a variety of foods, whether it is meat or plant, and also are able to handle certain levels of "toxins" present in both meat and plants. It is naive to think meat is 100% "toxin" free. We cannot avoid...

Nutrition journals tend to be rather dry and dense reading. And like most research, there seems to be no definitive “answer” that you can then apply. What We Know About Nutrition is Just Our Best Guess The profession can be quite frustrating as it seems they are constantly changing guidelines and contradicting what was ‘fact’ 10 years ago (think margarine vs. butter debate). While I...

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...

I wanted to make this post as a one-stop shop for responses when combated by others about your diet and its nutritional significance. I'm sure you've been told certain essential nutrients can only be found in meat. That is not the case. In fact, such a claim is absurd and goes against the well-established science of biology and chemistry.   Let's address the most common...

We all know there’s a lot of misinformation out there regarding nutrition. A big one is avoiding carbs before bed (or food entirely) because our metabolism “slows down”. Another is eating small meals frequently throughout the day to “boost” metabolism. Both are completely false, and manipulating meal timing or frequency should only be done if it suits your lifestyle or preferences, and can be maintained...

The reason why eating junk food plus taking vitamins doesn't equal healthy heating is because of the calories. Vitamins and minerals are only used to optimize and support the enzymes that support our cells and body. Calories, on the other hand, are what those enzymes work on, and result in our metabolism. so, even if our metabolic enzymes are at peak efficiency, you are still eating...
