Nutrition: It's A Matter of Fact

Welcome to March! Lots going on this month....St. Patrick's Day, Easter, and.........National Nutrition Month! I know you have been waiting all year for nutrition month! It is finally here!

Nutrition is one thing that people are talking about all the time. At least they are talking about it to me all the time! Since you are reading this blog, you are obviously interested in nutrition and probably read about it as many places as you can get your hands on. While there are a lot of good sources of nutrition information out there, misinformation is also abundant on the internet and even in books and magazines.

During National Nutrition Month, the American Dietetic Association wants you to look beyond the myths of nutrition, focus on the facts and remember the theme for the month, Nutrition: It’s a Matter of Fact.

Sifting through complex food and nutrition research can be complicated. A registered dietitian can translate the science and tailor it into advice that fits an individual consumer’s needs. Nutrition research is released daily, and it can be very confusing to sift through what is fact and what is applicable to you and your life. A healthy diet means something different for every person, and it should. Every body is different and we all have different needs and habits that work for us.
