Are you comfortable with your eating?
2/15/2015 1:07:07 PM

Take a moment to think about it- are you comfortable with your eating?  How much time do you spend thinking about food or your body? 

Yes, Hunger Will Do That To You!
7/13/2014 10:09:09 AM

 

You’ve probably heard of hangry by now, you know...when you’re so hungry you become angry…where you end up snapping at friends and family and biting someone’s head off because you really need a snack or meal.  Did you know that hangry is not the only emotional response of hunger?


Holiday Enjoyment Guide
11/13/2013 11:08:13 PM

I’m tired of all the blogs and articles on surviving the holidays.  It makes what is supposed to be a very exciting, joyous time of the year sound like a horrible experience that you just need to get through while barely hanging on.  People survive cancer, wars, famine, and natural disasters.  How does surviving get attached to the holidays?  Yes, I know that there is a lot of stress around the holidays, and I realize that it is a difficult time of year for many people.  I acknowledge that there are certain life events that make the holidays harder, however when there’s a holiday survival guide for everything under the sun, it has to make you wonder what is so bad about the holidays that we just need to survive?  I can’t help but wonder- what would happen if we shifted our focus from surviving the holidays to actually enjoying them?    What if changing the way we think about the holidays affected the way we felt and reacted too?  With that in mind here is my Holiday Enjoyment Guide (it sounds better already):


Eating Disorder Fact or Fiction
7/4/2013 11:44:19 AM

Whenever I tell people that I specialize in eating disorders I often hear a joke or an inappropriate comment in return such as: America has an eating disorder, it’s called Thanksgiving Day, I have an eating disorder it’s called powdered doughnuts, I wish I had a touch of anorexia, Man I wish I had that willpower.  Every time that I hear these comments it assures me that people do not understand eating disorders.  They only continue to perpetuate the problem and prevent people from getting the help they need.  Eating disorders are brain based biological illnesses and are the deadliest mental illness.  Learn to separate fact from fiction with three common beliefs about eating disorders.


RD≠FPD
4/18/2013 12:25:32 AM

Many of people believe that as a dietitian I am a member of the FPD- the Food Police Department.  A lot people think that dietitians are the food police, going around passing judgment of people and what’s on their plate or in their shopping cart at the grocery store.  Others think we take the joy out of life by forbidding juicy, mouthwatering burgers and smooth, creamy turtle cheesecake and replacing them with carrot sticks or tofu instead.  Even worse, others think that we look at people and judge them based on their size.  This couldn’t be farther from the truth!  Yet it’s almost daily that I hear- “Don’t judge me about what I’m eating.” “Don’t look at my shopping cart.” or “Don’t judge me based on my size!”  This is not what dietitians do!


RD or RDN: What's The Difference?
4/18/2013 12:00:15 AM

Recently the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (the professional body for Registered Dietitians) announced that dietitians now have the option to use RD or RDN to represent the dietitian credential.  The RDN credential stands for Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and further emphasizes the nutrition aspect of a dietitian’s training and expertise. 


RD Day & National Nutrition Month
3/13/2013 3:23:36 PM

If you’ve ever looked into special holidays and observances you will know that there is one for practically every day of the year.  Some are respected and traditional holidays while some are silly, strange, or well deserved.  For example, in March there is St. Patrick’s Days but there’s also pi day (3/14), Corn Dog Day (3/23), and Registered
Dietitian Day (3/13).

New Years Resolutions
1/3/2013 12:49:34 PM

Happy 2013!  As we begin the New Year many people resolve to make changes for a better future.  Resolutions can be quite broad but according to research anywhere from 40-80% of Americans make a similar resolution.  I don’t think it takes much guessing to figure out what that resolution is, but if you guessed weight loss, getting fit, or getting toned- then you would be correct. 

Weight Loss Confusion
12/14/2012 10:58:33 PM

If you are looking for information about weight loss you are probably overwhelmed by all of the choices and conflicting information available to you.  I think this is true for pretty much everywhere, but I see it first hand with weight loss in Tyler, Texas. 


Welcome!

Welcome to My Signature Nutrition Blog!  Thank you for joining us.  In this inaugural post I really hope to lay the groundwork for what you will find here in the future.  As you know, nutrition is an integral part of your daily life.  Each day you make choices about what to eat, when to eat, how much to eat, where to eat, and perhaps even whom to eat with.
