Let's get one thing straight, over the years I have met some truly fantastic dietitians and nutritionists, highly knowledgeable, highly ethical and the well-being of their patients or clients is the number one priority. They did not ask me to trust them, why would they? I have never met a Doctor who pleaded with me to trust him or her. Get my drift. That being said, I have reasons to not want to trust many dietitians I have encountered. Far too many times I have seen information and articles, from dietitians urging me to consume a food, that has proved to be a serious health hazard to me and countless millions, namely sugar
"Don't fall for the sugar witch hunt. vDietDoc explains why we need carbohydrates in our diet and why demonising sugar and carbohydrates is not useful or accurate. Currently there is a relentless campaign against the use of even a single grain of sugar in our diet. The proponents of this “sugar witch-hunt” are as fanatical as any Medieval Crusader and probably just as misguided."
So says Dr Ingrid van Heerden a registered dietitian in an article at Health24 which can be found here. No ambiguity there, go against big sugar and you are a fanatic and misguided. Let's not forget sugar has zero useful nutrients, and the epidemics of obesity and it's often linked type two diabetes. Many of the worlds leading experts on obesity, including Dr. Robert Lustig believe sugar has played a major role in aforementioned health disasters.
