Detoxing from dogmatic dietitian education and attitudes for a mind wide open
But first, “you must unlearn what you have learned” YODA
For decades, lower carb diets were shunned by the dietetic profession because they saw the diets as fads, imbalanced and worse, dangerous. But after decades of research to show otherwise, many dietitians are shaking off their dogmatic professional socialization and embracing the evidence.
Eliana Witchell RD shares her journey as one of a few forward-thinking dietitians who are using low carb diets to improve their patients’ care and health.
