How to Win an Argument With a Nutritionist
by Kris Gunnars of Authority Nutrition
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.
The general guidelines are completely outdated.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If you ever find yourself in an argument with an outdated nutrition professional,vegan or low-fat zealot, then feel free to use the answers and studies listed below. Click here to read the list.
