Here’s a photo from a symposium for dietitians.

It is not a joke.

This is why you can’t trust weight loss advice from a dietitian. He or she may have been trained by The Coca Cola Company. The largest professional association of dietitians in America have sold out to the junk food industry, as previously reported.

If you ask a dietitian for weight loss advice you’ll probably just be told to eat less calories. You can keep eating junk food once in a while and even drink soda, as long as you count the calories. This is exactly what the Coca Cola Company wants you to believe.

The truth is that this advice only suits masochists who enjoy being hungry forever. If you want to lose weight without hunger there is a better way to do it.

PS: There are of course plenty of smart dietitians too. The photo above is from the Facebook page of Dietitians for Professional Integrity. If you’re a dietitian and want to feel proud of your profession I recommend you support them.

  1. Hello, I am Andy Bellatti, the creator -- and of the co-founders -- of Dietitians for Professional Integrity. Thank you for supporting our efforts and spreading the word about our work. I appreciate you calling out this ridiculousness and simultaneously pointing out that this sort of unethical sponsorship does not represent all RDs.

    People try to sell every diet you can imagine, and deciding you can't trust a LC approach because it is available for sale, doesn't make sense. Most people use completely free web-sites and library books for diet inspirations.
    I don't think a personal diet approach should be based on a trust. Before LCarbing, I followed an anty-inflammatory diet plan designed by a well respected Dr.Weill and it worsened my health and made me fatter (the plan required limiting animal proteins and fats, increasing whole grains , fruits and veggies).
