Nutrition Education: Finding The Best Path PDF Print E-mail

I am often asked my opinion on what is the best way for someone to pursue an education and/or career in nutrition.  Usually, it is from someone who has seen the results of what living healthfully can do and often experienced a dramatic improvement in their health and now wants to help others and carry the message.   

The dilemma they often face is how best to go about this as there seems to be no perfect way to do this.  On one hand, they can pursue an accredited degree from an accredited school which will entail learning lots of information that is industry sponsored and may be inaccurate just so they can get a recognized and accredited degree.  The positive aspect of this is that it will open many doors in the traditional world of healthcare and medicine.   On the other hand, they can pursue one of the non-accredited degrees from a non accredited school and while they may learn more information that is closer to what they feel is accurate, they will still need to learn lots of information that is inaccurate and contradictory.  In addition, it is much harder to become established and be recongized and/or accepted in the traditional world of healthcare and medicine. In addition, patients may not feel as confident in a non accredited degree as an accredited degree.

The American Dietitic Association just released their 2009 update of their Position Paper on Vegetarian Diets.  

Position of the American Dietetic Association: vegetarian diets.

"It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the lifecycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes. "

This paper, published in the July issue of the Journal of the American Dietitic Association, is a comprehensive overview of the current science surrounding vegetarian diets and covers many areas and aspects of the vegetarin diet including consumer trends, new product availability, health implications and nutritional considerations.   The conclusion states...

The following was posted recently in a public discussion forum I help facilitate from a client I worked with. He is an attorney and and works for the State of California Attorney General's Office. I will let him tell his story in his own words. When asked if he minded if I posted this in publicly elsewhere, Bob responded,

"Jeff, you are welcome to use my real name anywhere you would like. One of the reasons I did the repeat test was to hopefully benefit others through your program. And thanks again for the help."

The real congratulations goes to the client who diligently implemented the dietary and lifestyle recommendations.



Dr. McDougall and Dr. Esselstyn promise that heart disease can be reversed, and I am happy to say that I can confirm what they say.

Variety vs Simplicity: The Key to Success Pt 2 PDF Print E-mail

After writing last weeks blog, I was reminded of an article I wrote on the topic a few year back on the same topic and am going to reprint it here this week.

Simplicity: The Key to Health!

Over the last 25 years of following the principles of "healthful living", I often hear the following comment...

"Jeff, this is SIMPLE for you to do and follow because you have been doing it for so LONG".

To which I respond...

"You have it backwards, the reason I have been able to do this for so LONG is because I have always kept it so SIMPLE."

Well, turns out that maybe I am correct as my personal philosophy and thoughts were just recently supported by an interesting study that was done. These results may also be able to help many of you by pointing out the "key" component to following a program of healthful living successfully.

"Variety" may be the "spice of life" but "simplicity" is truly the "key to health"

Many cultures around the world have survived, (and even thrived) on very limited food supplies with very limited varieties of the foods. Not only the Okinawans and Chinese centenarians on mostly sweet potatoes but also the Tarahumara's & the Pima's in the Sierra Madre's Mountains of Mexico on corn and beans, the Papau of New Guinea, the Irish on potatoes, etc, And of course, the simple variety available to them changed somewhat over the course of the year.

The negative aspect of this is that "if" the soil happens to be deficient in a mineral, then there is a greater chance for deficiency of that mineral. There are two well known examples of this happening including the problem with iodine in the Great Lakes "Goiter Belt" of America, and selenium in an area of China.
