Hi Everyone, Been about a zillion years since I've posted here, but I'm still alive and kicking. (Or so they tell me.) I'd like to tell you what I'm up to, and then hopefully I can get some input from Paleo/Primal/real-food eaters in... (more)
I went to my doctor (not my regular doc) today to get some basic blood work done, when asked about my diet regime and informed her on my paleo lifestyle, i literally got scolded on my eating habits. All i could do was sit there and get preached... (more)
I do CrossFit 3 times a week, jiu jitsu 2x/week and muay thai 2x/week, plus other general sports activities for fun. I'm looking for a good paleo nutritionist who understands the demands of sports but would like to try to eat a mostly paleo diet... (more)
My brother is trying to lose weight and has tried Paleo and other diets but nothing has worked. I've tried to counsel him but for various reasons my influence is limited. I think he needs some one on one counseling to help. Perhaps someone who is... (more)
I was just wondering if someone can give me a path to becoming a nutritionist and the different things one can become from there. Just any wisdom in general would help.
The career of "nutritional therapist" sounds interesting. It would be cool to do what Lucy Jones the dietician from the UK series "The Food Hospital" does - including working alongside an openminded, clued-up, doctor and surgeon in that sort of a... (more)
Are there any MovNat trainers/enthusiasts in Los Angeles interested in partnering up with a real food nutritional coach to build a movement in LA? Contact me. More about me on www.swissnutritioneer.com
This is geared toward nutritionists, doctors, personal trainers, and anyone else who makes a living helping people with health and fitness... I seem to go back and forth between long periods of sticking to a very good diet and short bursts... (more)
Ok, I'll make this brief, I have officially become overwhelmed by my issues and unable to guide myself forward on my own as my disordered eating thoughts are becoming too loud again. I have already been through treatment- extensive- for ED,... (more)
So... I will be starting counselling for an ED soon. Mainly binge eating, with a history of bulimia and anorexic eating. Mostly binge eating, though. That is the main problem I have now. I'll also be seeing a nutritionist. I've looked up the... (more)
i've been paleo now for about a month. to be honest, i have NEVER been on a diet (i know, way of eating.) that i haven't cheated on within the first week. for some reason, paleo is different. except for the 1/2 spoonful of cookie dough i ate (i am... (more)
Another person to consider is Liz Wolfe. She is a paleo nutritional therapy practitioner. She does a regular paleo podcast with Diane Sanfilippo of Balanced Bites.
Basically looking for someone to work with.. thanks.
is anyone commenting on blogs that dis' paleo? whenever mainstream nutritionists say skipping grains and low fat pasteurized dairy is a bad idea, my blood boils. They just love the nutritional value of grains. . . I have to comment. Anyone else? (more)
It's still a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine, but I'm really trying to cut back! ;) I came across one yesterday that referred to couscous as "a perfectly good grain" and I just couldn't let that one slide :(
I was reading this "insightful" article by nutritionist Sue Radd (www.sueradd.com) in which she explains the dangers of the Palaeolithic diet. A must read from just another "specialist" in human nutrition ->... (more)
I stopped reading at "These diets restrict both types of carbohydrates—the refined, and the unrefined or wholegrains" So there are only two carbohydrates... refined and unrefined grains.
My 61 year old father just informed me he's been in the hospital for 9 days because his doc overdosed him on pain meds for a double hip replacement he had 1.5 years ago. He's 5'4" and under 100 lbs at this point. He has a history of alcoholism... (more)
