Does Fat Make You Fat and other Myths
Nancy Cohen RDN LDN
I hope this finds you well. As November approaches I am reminded of college graduations and good health. I am reminded that I chose to study Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of Florida College of Health Related Professions and have been in my field of Nutrition and Health for 41 years- never skipping a year, a day or a beat.
Did you know that to be a Licensed Dietitian you must keep up your continuing education continuously to do the work you love? Well I do – and I do know my Nutrition.
So this week I was sitting with another beautiful client straightening out myths. She was having anxiety over eating fat. Does fat make you fat? Absolutely not!
Do carbs make you fat? Not if you eat them correctly.
Does protein make you have muscle? Not the way I see it.
There are so many fallacies in the world of Nutrition- somehow we are sold a lot
of information in order to promote someone else’s sales and push products. There are tons
of great food products on the market- but we still must work with Knowledge and Science.
At Feeding The Body Feeding The Soul- we base our Nutrition Counseling on Science
and Research. It is not fad related- and the counseling you receive is oriented to you at your
age, your medical profile and your interest and ability to cook and feed yourself. I have
been counseling children through adults for 41 years and love every moment of it. From
health and wellness to Medical Nutrition I hope I will offer you some sound, sage wisdom
that has worked for a long time.
If you do sit down and eat an entire box of fried chicken chased by a carton of donuts with a gallon
of whole milk- we might have to face the fact that these calories have the potential to make you
fat- but that is what you get in a one on one discussion with a Licensed Registered Dietitian like me.
Check in with me if you would like to review your Nutrition Habits and find out if you are meeting
your Nutrient Needs to be the Best You Can Be!
Happy Halloween and the end of October.
Thank you for entrusting me with your Nutrition Needs.
