I'm still alive and kickin' (enough to screw up 2 attempts at beef jerky and one “college try” at home-making a roasting rack) and I just wanted to give my readers (Hey mom! Hey sis! Hey Justin Bieber and Selenita Gomez!) a lil' update…
I'm ecstatic to be in final preparations to begin my Nutritional Therapy program! The next year will be spent fulfilling my dream of becoming a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. While we crunched the numbers on going back to University for an RD qual or to become a Clinical Nutritionist, in the end I couldn't A) Justify the expense or B) envision laboring through 4 more years of college in a SAD-oriented program whose affiliated organizations condone recommending processed carbs to diabetics.
Yes, this really happens. From the venerable American Diabetes Association:
The current government-supported nutritional recommendations (unfortunately, the standards for University nutrition programs are derived straight from these flawed guidelines) wholeheartedly support the pharmaceutical onslaught that this country is eating up (literally). The idea that whole grains are “good” and bacon is “bad” is based on bad science, a misunderstanding of appropriate food sourcing, and the Food Industry's desperate attempts to keep us beholden to their packaged products. Lots of people stand to lose LOTS of money if Humanity wises up. And even if Science figured out what The Body already knows, I wouldn't expect Wheat Thins to add a disclaimer to their boxes. (But if they did, I assume it would look like this:)
We need a paradigm shift, and I believe Nutritional Therapy is a guiding light in this battle. Nora Gedgaudas, the author of Primal Body, Primal Mind, is a certified NTP, and I couldn't be more excited to work towards that title. I'll still be blogging, here and for Steve's Original, so please stick with me! All I ask is that you feel free to ask any questions you may have so I can evaluate them in the context of Nutritional Therapy and continue to learn from my amazing readers and friends.
Oh, and here's a quick game: Which one of these is Real Food?
