These days I see everyone seems to be identifying themselves with a Nutrition or Food Identity (food identity). I recently assessed a young man for an already healthy diet he was his ideal weight and exercised regulary but he wanted to eat even more healthy. Great to hear. More bright coloured fruit and veggies etc would help. Food ideas to prevent cancer would be great. There are many options. He pulled a bottle of green water out of his bag. Is this what he is looking for......................? A green liquid so people can identify him as 'the green liquid guy'. My client this week with IBS has a true food identity. He is on the FODMAP diet so when he is at a party with friends they can identify with this. However he said he would b happy to give away this food identity to be well again. Most men identify with eating meat as their MO in a group. Others have a favourite smoothie as part of their ID. What is your food ID..............................? Go to #myfoodID on Twitter and let us know.

Diets Popular in 2016

As the new year arrives more and more people of all ages are heading to the gym.  Popular Diets: Paleo, Wheat Belly, Ketone Diet, Atkins, Weight Watchers, Bernstein, Elimination diet, FODMAP Diet, Gluten-Free Diets all have some significant health considerations:
When your thought turn to weight loss or a healthy diets here are some things to consider:
  1. Does the diet provide all the nutrients you need for who you are?  
  2. Does the author of the article or book know who you are and what your health problems are and how active and healthy you already are.  Keep this in mind that the author of a popular diet book you might be reading may be actually targetting very obese inactive people.
  3. Does the diet promote more than 2 pounds weight loss per week.
  4. Does the diet eliminate one or more of the 4 food groups.
  5. Does the diet invent another food group for example a food or drink that you must have that is not a food group.
  6. Do they promote rituals using products they sell.
  7. Do they use testimonials as evidence of success in only a few cases.
  8. Do they claim to work for everyone.
  9. Is their a system in place to change exercise and eating habits long term.
  10. Are they critical of the medical and dietetic profession.  
Have a happy healthy New Year enjoying your exercise and contact for nutrition advice from someone who will learn who you are and your needs and specific goals.
