I found an article about ten ways you can eat like a dietitian and thought it was pretty good overall. I am already a fan of Ellie Krieger and like many of her recipes, but the main thing that I find I disagree with most nutritionists about is the importance of fat in our diet.
Low-fat diets don’t work, and studies have shown that they are actually not good for you. Your body needs fat in order for cells and organs to function properly. Granted, you should be getting your fat from grass fed butter, whole milk (raw if you can), raw milk cheese, coconut oil, olive oil, olives, avocados, etc., not McDonald’s or Taco Bell!
You also have to remember that these food items do have higher amounts of calories, so you have to be careful to take that into your overall daily allotment of calories. Just because you’re eating real, wholesome food doesn’t mean you can completely forget about calories. You can relax knowing that you are feeding your body with nourishing food and doing something good for yourself, so you should most definitely not obsess about calories!
What tips do you have on how to eat like a nutritionist? I’d love to hear how my readers keep themselves, and their families, healthy and focused on real food.
