    Default How to Win an Argument With a Nutritionist [debunking food myths]

    This is a fully documented article critiquing the bad advice still being promulgated by RDs (registered dietitians). I'm making it a sticky because it's based on solid, current science.

    I love nutrition, but I really hate the way it tends to be practiced.

    Many dietitians are NOT basing their nutrition advice on the latest science (1).

    The general guidelines are completely outdated. They have barely changed in the past few decades, even though nutrition science has advanced greatly.

    I’ve personally stopped getting into arguments about nutrition online, because it is time consuming and frustrating. But I know that a lot of people do get into these arguments often, so I’ve decided to write an article to give people some “weapons” to win these arguments easily.

    By far the best way to win an argument about nutrition is to have a link to a good scientific study. Nutrition is science, after all, although it often tends to resemble religion or politics.

    If you ever find yourself in an argument with an outdated nutrition professional, vegan or low-fat zealot, then feel free to use the answers and studies listed below. Make sure to bookmark this page if you tend to get in these types of arguments often!

    Disclaimer: Many nutritionists are good, highly intelligent, competent people. But unfortunately… the ones that are the most prominent in the media usually spew the same anti-fat, high-grain nonsense that got us into this public health disaster.
