Dispelling nutrition myths, ranting, and occasionally, raving

Since it’s weight stigma week I thought I would share with you this excellent blog post Yes I Am an Overweight Dietitian by Aaron Flores. Many of us saw the original tweet that prompted this post: “If you’re an overweight dietitian, how am I supposed to listen to you telling me how to eat?” I’m sure that many of us have heard that sentiment before. His blog post imparts an important message that an individual’s weight does not affect their level of knowledge or ability to help another person with their nutrition goals.
