Maybe, the “Experts” Weren’t Experts After All!
For twenty-five years, I have invested my time, my education, my expertise, and my heart in my therapies for people suffering from chronic illnesses. I have studied, researched, and applied every bit of knowledge I could acquire toward presenting my clientele with the best information and coaching in nutrition.
For twenty-five years, I have reviewed, witnessed, and personally experienced every “diet du jour” that surfaced. There were articles, books, videos, talk shows, and experts up the yin-yang.
For Twenty of Those Years, I Was Flat-Assed Wrong!
For twenty-five years, I have listened to my clients tell me the advice they were given about nutrition and exercise from their primary care doctors and the “-ologists” they were referred to.
For twenty-five years, I listened and tried not to disagree—after all, they were the doctors.
For Twenty Years, I Trusted the Wrong Information!
By now, you have enough of my whining about the past.
But not any more!
What I have listed above is just a thimble full of concerns compared to an ocean full of problems.
For example, most of us believe that we can live our lives however we damn well please, and then when medical problems arise, we can turn to our doctors for a quick fix in the form of the latest and greatest pill!
I Relied on “Experts” to Tell Us What Was Good or Bad for Us!
Permit me, if you will, to give you some—no, lots of—information that should be public that’s not—the why is another matter.
- In 1994, the American Diabetes Association recommended that Americans should consume 60 to 70 percent of their calories from carbohydrates.
- The rates of diabetes exploded!
- In fact, the number of cases of diabetes actually doubled between 1997 and 2007.
Did you also know that becoming a diabetic doubles your risk for Alzheimer’s disease?
Did you know that we Americans are called “carboholics”?
Why? Because of our addiction to sweetened beverages, grain-based foods, potatoes, corn, and rice.

Are You Aware of What “Overconsumptive Undernutriton” Is?
Well, Its a mouth full of words because of a stomach full of problems.
In today’s America, far too many of us are malnourished—not from eating too little, but rather from eating too much of too little!
Tell me what you eat, I’ll tell you who you are.

Here is the situation: You can’t eat healthfully if you don’t know what healthy eating looks like!
Every dietary approach in the world relies on the same three classes of macronutrients and you are quite familiar with them…like every day familiar.
Carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
Most people (if not everyone) knows this but what is each of these macronutrients comprised of?
I have asked several questions here, and given a few simple answers. However, there is much, much more than you need to be aware of.
You Need to Learn to Love the Foods That Love You Back!
And here is a huge key…
You Need to Reeducate Your Taste Preferences so…
You’ll want to Eat Foods That are Good for You!
As I have stated, I have made some mistakes in judgment in regards to my allegiance to experts…the same type of experts that fell prey to the same type of misinformation that I did.
It doesn’t need to be as hard as you perceive it or make it.
