Can Fat Make You Fat and other Myths
Nancy Cohen RDN LDN
I hope this finds you well. As this Mother’s Day weekend approaches I am reminded of mothers, 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 39 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. You have to work for that- but you CAN maintain it's integrity through GOOD NUTRITION.
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 39 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!
