In a 2014 article published in “Annual Review of Public Health” David Katz and his Yale colleague Stephanie Meller, ask the question “Can We Say What Diet Is Best for Health?” The fascinating commentary summarizes many of the current “diet fads” and makes some succinct and evidence based conclusions.
As a group of Registered Dietitians, we at Nutritional Solutions are well aware of the “Spring has sprung” squirmish that sees many flocking to the latest fad diet to find summer health solace and the proverbial quick-fix. A look at nutrition information that is currently plastered all over the internet, leaves us feeling nervous for your impending feelings of overwhelming panic; lack of direction and ultimately, the confusion cloud that is bound to descend post-Google search.
We have set out to publish a Blog series that details the current “Diets du jour” and discusses them within the context of which diet is actually best for health. We hope to bring evidence-based conclusions to your queries and concerns, in order to help you to navigate which diet is truly optimal for your health, first and foremost, and also for your waistline. Look out for posts on the following diets in the upcoming few weeks:
- The Dukan Diet
- Intermittent fasting
- “Eat Right for Your Blood Type”
If there are other diet related questions you would like
us to shed light on, within this topic, we would love to hear from you! Please email [email protected] with any suggestions. We hope to invite constructive discussion that leaves our readers feeling more assured, confident and most importantly, focused on their own health.
