Finding Legitimate Nutrition Advice

Follow this blog with Bloglovin’

A friend recently posted an article on Facebook about receiving bad nutritional advice. Being a healthy living blogger, I read a lot of health articles on the internet. I occasionally come across articles I have thought to be incredibly bogus.

I wanted to share this article, as the beginning of the new year often generates a flux of people who want to start living healthier. This is a great thing, but it’s important for people to do this the right way.

That being said, I’d like to point out a few things you might see from time to time on Slim Sanity. I do sometimes share nutrition advice received from other sources. I very often share my own personal experiences with nutrition. These are two different things. I do hold a disclaimer for my blog that I AM NOT a registered dietitian (RD) or other certified specialist qualified to give nutrition advice.

I AM, however, very soon receiving my PhD in a hard science and am very skilled at researching facts. Anything I post on Slim Sanity about nutrition would be from a source I believe is qualified to give me information. In fact I have several posts in my queue about nutrition questions I have wanted to answer for myself, and plan to dig around in published research or ask a specialist for that information. I would never display this information as coming from myself or my own personal advice. Like any other PhD knows, references are crucial. Citing your source is what makes any paper legitimate, and I would treat any blog posts in the same way.

If you are new around here and looking for new ideas for a healthy way of living, I am glad you stopped by and hope you enjoy what you find! If you are looking for specific nutritional advice, feel free to ask and I can refer you to the right articles or blogs.

Here are a few blogs written by RDs who I think are fabulous.

When you are looking for specific nutrition advice, where do you go? Do you follow any RD (or other specialist) bloggers?
