Why my blog?

Hello readers,

You may ask, why my blog? What am I bringing to the table? Sometimes, literally? The internet currently is inundated with misleading information on nutrition.  With sky rocketing cases of obesity worldwide, the lay person who has been eternally fighting the battle of the bulge, becomes very gullible to websites and blogs that dish out nutrition related advice that is often not evidence based.

As a Registered and Licensed Clinical Dietitian, and Certified Diabetes Educator, my education and training includes sifting through all the evidence and presenting information based on sound, scientific guidelines.  I am presenting information that to my knowledge is truthful, credible and evidence based.

My goal is to translate the complex science of nutrition into simple, easy to understand and implement messages for you, my readers, thus empowering you to take charge of your health!

Today we are faced with an increasing array of foods that are highly processed at least partly to increase shelf life.  The refining process creates a “non-food” as it were, that has been stripped of fiber and vital nutrients, thus creating  a pale shadow of the wholesome foods our ancestors ate.   Readers will notice that every step of the way I steer them towards eating food the way it was meant to be eaten. Whole and wholesome!

So please join me as I help you navigate the complex dietary landscape and help you make lifestyle changes that you can  actually live with!

Sincerely,

Sangeeta Pradhan, RD, LDN, CDE

    I agree entirely, processing “creates a “non-food” as it were, that has been stripped of fiber and vital nutrients”. One instructor once told a class I attended to notice the layout of the grocery stores (esp. in America), the whole, more raw foods are toward the back and outer perimeter, so that shoppers must pass through the shelves of processed food before getting to the basics. Thank you for stopping by What’s Next. I look forward to reading more here!

  4. You are so very welcome! Yes, those supermarkets are very cleverly laid out, aren’t they? Shopping the perimeter might help, but if you are shopping on an empty stomach, we can become prey to all those highly processed goodies , even though we know intellectually they are virtually junk! Great feedback! Thank you:))
