Food for Thought

I just finished a nutrition course (back in college and fulfills a grad requirement). Fun stuff I took away from the course:

  • Most doctors have less formal nutrition education under their belt than I just went through
    • They do get it in fits and starts as side notes in other courses, but less than half take a comprehensive class
  • Dietary supplements are very much buyer beware – and usually more harmful than helpful
  • Nutrition is more than calories and balancing carbs, fats and proteins

My favorite quote from my teacher, Ms. M. Goodrich: “Nothing is nutritious if no one eats it.”
