There is no shortage of information and advice on what to eat for health and what not to eat for weight loss. As the end-user, it’s in our hands to distinguish between healthy and fad diet trends and take up the best advises. Given here are five crisp suggestions that can help you decide whether or not something is nutritious.
Who is a nutritionist and what does the word mean? In a few circumstances it actually means nothing and is often used in the wrong context mostly by individuals who have no formal training in nutrition science. There are even online diploma courses on nutrition that provide the individual with no beneficial qualification nor title and the person is equipped in no way to provide sound nutritional guidance. Rather, look for people with a registered dietitian (RD) or registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) credential as they are the ones who have passed a national examination, met academic standards, completed required practice sessions and keep themselves in par with continuing professional requirements to continue standard practice and maintain registration.
Others who can qualify as experts in the nutrition field include those with a master’s or doctorate degree in a nutrition-related field. Certain medical doctors (MD) and osteopathic doctors (DO) have additional qualification, such as nutrition training, along with their specialization. Given such broad category of specialists, it is wise to look into each of these and pick our required RD/RDN before jumping into conclusions without any knowledge.
We see numerous promises and headlines regarding weight loss in newspapers and media every day that can never be true. When you delve into the details you are annoyed yet amazed by the crafty wordings and luscious messages-Can you really lose 7 kgs in 7 days? Is it possible to lose weight without exercising? Should you completely refrain from eating foods from one particular food group? Such luring statements and easy solutions are extremely common in the nutrition, weight loss and supplement worlds. Mind you, when a tagline sounds just like the one you dream about, there is almost 100% chance that it is not true.
Celebrity-endorsed products began to flabbergast public during the initial days of advertisements. This technique proved to be successful for marketing people as the general public was decoyed by such ads and started using these products. But testimonials in the food and nutrition world work on a different platform. Testimonials might promise glowing skin, increased energy or improved muscle strength due to some supplement, superfood or pill. Ask yourself-Is the model glowing bright with radiance due to the brand of water that she drinks? Is the actor talented so much that he does not need a dupe because of the pre-workout supplement that he takes? Analyze the claims such as ‘feel younger’, ‘have more energy’ and ‘lose weight quickly’ behind these testimonials and confirm if it is really proved.
Fake news can encroach not only politics but also any other industry. Food and nutrition industry can go to any extent to publicize themselves and their products. They even have the ability to set up fake sites or stories to look reliable and believable to sell their stuff. If you feel dissatisfied or suspicious after reading a particular nutrition news story, you need to understand that it might be a paid advertisement and not an authentic publication news.
Hundreds of dietary supplements rolled out in the market contain prescription drugs and chemicals that are prohibited in any over-the-counter products. Keep reading the newspapers and look out for authentic news from the FDA to be aware of the latest trending supplement scams.
Whom to Believe?
Not all nutrition news is false. There are plenty of reliable nutrition information that just needs to be filtered properly and used correctly. Look for authentic government nutrition websites and believe those sites written by government-approved/qualified RDs/RDNs who are experts in the nutrition field.
AVOID FRAUD. EAT SMART.
