Let’s start off with some interesting research findings shared by fellow dietitians Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch: “Dieting twins, who embarked on just one intentional weight loss episode, were nearly 2-3 times more likely to become overweight, compared to their non-dieting twin counterpart. Furthermore, the risk of becoming overweight increased in a dose-dependent manner, with each dieting episode.” “A team of UCLA researchers reviewed 31 long-term studies on dieting and…

But what does the research say?

Conflicting Nutrition Research?

| Blog | No Comments

Should I be vegan? Should I be paleo? Should I follow low fat? Should I follow low carb? Does this cause cancer? Does that protect against heart disease? Should I worry about my cholesterol? … What does the research say? I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while, mostly because someone asks me at least once a week – “doesn’t research show that (insert food here) causes (insert chronic…

Why I No Longer Have A Scale In My Office

| Blog | 2 Comments

To Scale Or Not To Scale When I first opened my private practice I knew one thing had to change – there would no longer be a scale in my office.

Does Weekend Eating Keep You From Reaching Your Goals? I’ve Got A Solution

| Blog, Recipes | No Comments

Ready to have a weekend filled with delicious food that does not leave you feeling (insert how you feel after a few days of indulging here)? I often hear from my clients, “I do so well during the week but on the weekend I feel too tired to prepare meals”.
