So many times I have heard from people that tell me their doctors say: “Watch your diet”. What in the heck does that mean? Perhaps we hear this from many physicians because they do not receive much nutrition education in medical school. There has got to be a better way to inspire people about their lifestyle choices. My recommendation: Consult a nutritionist (watch for credentials). There are many types of nutritionists that have dubious training and lack any reliable credentials. For diabetes help, look for the credentials “CDE” which tells us that this person is a certified diabetes educator. Many are also registered nurses or registered dietitians.
