    British Dietetic Association Catherine Collins wrong again!

    Post by Eddie on Fri Apr 29 2016, 14:47

    Check out almost any diabetes forum and diabetic blogs and you will find countless negative posts regarding dietitians. Despite the British Dietetic Association's long term slogan "Trust A Dietitian" many do not trust a dietitian, the reasons are obvious. So many cling to the totally failed dogma of eat less fat and eat more carbs. This has contributed greatly to the epidemics of obesity and the often linked type two diabetes.

    Unless you have been living in a cave in outer Mongolia, you would have seen the countless articles in science journals, newspaper articles and television programs, informing us on the now known dangers of sugar. Only people of limited dietary knowledge, do not know carbohydrates turn to sugar once digested, clearly many dietitians fit into this category. Hang on a minute you may be thinking, surely that cannot be true. Well, ask yourself this question, why do the majority of dietitians recommend a high starch-carb-sugar diet to the most allergic to sugar people on the planet, namely diabetics.

    The salvation of countless diabetics is the diet/lifestyle known as low carb higher fat. Highly vocal BDA dietitian Catherine Collins says and I quote "Only those with little knowledge of real-life dietary habits would believe LCHF diets sustainable"

    I know, or know of hundreds of low carb higher fat diabetics who have stuck with the lifestyle for many years. Amazing how many people say 'it can't be done' when what they mean is 'I can't do it' Also, I know of many highly qualified scientists, doctors, and well informed dietitians, that not only believe a low carb higher fat diet is sustainable, many actually low carb themselves. Check out below the foods many low carbers base their diet on, ask yourself, could I be more than happy and healthy using these foods. I wonder what Catherine must eat, if she believes living on the foods below are unsustainable. Possibly the sort of junk that often leads to obesity and type two diabetes.

    One last point, I would contact Catherine via twitter directly, but she blocked me sometime ago. She can of course respond to this post directly here. I doubt very much that will happen, because Catherine has no answers it would appear to a straight question.

    You start eating LCHF because your life depends on it.

    You continue because it's a damn sight tastier than all that wheat and "vegetable" oil.

    Collins does not appreciate the Hippocrates quote  Rolling Eyes


    But hang on for us diabetics she proposes a diet that definitely does not promote food as a medicine


    Does that make her a quack and a charlatan given she must be loved by Big Pharma

    I can remember BEFORE "healthy diets" when mysteriously there WERE no "epidemics" of obesity, diabetes, CVD and other metabolic diseases.

    Great but unattributed quote I lifted from a blog

    "It's as if food was only invented fifty years ago, and we don't know what it's for yet"

    Sounds cool to me, that was back in the days before dietitians, the pseudo medical professionals, and junk food advertising. Most spend their time in self aggrandisement mode on twitter telling us to "Trust A Dietitian" Saw this the other day on twitter. They really believe they are the fonts of all knowledge on what comprises a healthy diet. If only they had a clue.


    Disclaimer. Contrary to what some have said, I do not have a poor view of all dietitians, I know some awesome dietitians, some are also registered diabetes educators. Unfortunately, very few are in the UK. All are independents, and as such are not in the grip of junk food outfits, as so many dietitians and their associations are.

    Agreed, but they are unlikely to be employed in the NHS, unlike the nimnuls us lesser mortals get inflicted with. I've read complaints on several blogs by dieticians in training who are appalled at the crap they are forced to regurgitate for their exams and subsequently during their employment. 

    Dieticians For Integrity and similar organisations exist
