    Let's start a petition

    Post by graham64 on Sun Dec 18 2016, 22:47

    Given that there's a petition "Make 'Nutritionist' a legally protected title" 


    Currently, due to lack of regulation, anyone can set up and practice as a nutritionist/nutritional therapist, meaning there is no real protection for consumers. The Government should take action to prevent unqualified people from potentially putting people’s health at risk.

    There is very little understanding about what a ‘Registered Nutritionist’ is and how it compares to a nutritional therapist, nutritionist, nutrition advisor (the list of terms goes on). Yes, we have a UK voluntary register of Nutritionists held by the Association for Nutrition but this goes (mostly) unnoticed by the media and the public. It’s vital that we increase the awareness of this register so that people understand where to go to for accurate, evidence based advice.

    https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/171211
    We should start a petition that any nutritionist that promotes the Eat Well guide for diabetics  " starchy "37%; fruit/veg 39%; oils 1%; beans, pulses, meat 12%; dairy 8%; occasional foods 3%." should be sectioned under the mental health act

    Sounds like another bit of subterfuge by the BDA to me, trying to corner the market.They have no chance.

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    They might, they have the backing of all their sponsors in the Foodlike Substance Manufacturing Industry. As do the Government.
