I love this video from the Science Based Medicine website. It shows how people who call themselves nutritionists without real training really have no idea what they are doing.

Do you have a story about a visit with a person claiming to be a nutrition expert that left you confused and questioning their credibility?
I have had countless patients with similar “well the last nutritionist I talked to told me to… [fill in the blank]… and it was not realistic for me.
