Whatever way you spell dietition it does not alter the fact they are usually as much use to a diabetic as a hat rack to a reindeer. Over the years I have lost count of stories and forum posts stating the usual diet of death was recommended. “eat starchy carbs with every meal” Dietitions remind me of one of my grandchildren’s Toy Story toys, you pull Woody’s string and blah blah blah. Years ago on the fun forum I was stalked by a dietition, every time I posted she was on my back like Quasimodo’s hump. At first I was flattered, when you get to my state of decrepitude any kind of female attention is gonna turn your head, yeah. Well, it started well, but these things usually end in tears, and it did.
She blew it, no, not me, the relationship. Every other post I was being warned my lowcarb diet was a one way ticket to Palookaville, scurvy, osteoporosis, constipation etc etc, and that was the less serious stuff. Cyber love swiftly turned to cyber hate, and some of the old timers at the forum of flog know the story. Suffice to say, I developed a morbid fear of dietitions, it turned particularly ugly when I received two threats of legal action and a phone call from the Cardiff plod. To cut a long story short, after three months in the Priory, I could sleep without having nightmares about parts of me falling off with scurvy. Take it from me, the stories you hear about dietitions ain’t no music hall joke, most of 'em are barking. Look no further than Hope Warshaw’s recommendations of 45-60% of your calories from carbohydrates, if you think I’m wrong. So, what’s prompted this outburst ? Well over on the flog today a new thread was started called Dietician. Check it out before it gets locked or edited to death. As always the usual suspects are praising the merits of the barking ones.
Diet. The worlds best kept secret.
“Go with an open mind, not all on the forum have had bad experiences with dietitians. Make some notes before you go of what you need to ask and also make some notes of what he/she tells you whilst you are there.. If there is anything that is said that you do not understand, then tell him/her.”
Diet. Cornflakes, chocolate digestives, Jammie Dodgers and Celebration chocolates.
“I had a very positive couple of appointments with a dietician, she was very knowledgeable and helpful and I actually learned a lot about food groups and nutrition.”
