Igor calls my blog “Dieting and You” but I call it “Musings of a Lifelong Nutritionist.” Really, I’ve seen it all. Calorie Counters may know me from my column, Ask Mary. You can read about my credentials on my Account Page. I am honored to serve as “Your Personal Nutritionist.”
Calorie Count’s mission is to help people manage their weight. We help you
to help yourself. We hope give you the knowledge and skills to develop good
habits that will last a lifetime aa well as sane notions about food. The key
phrase is “manage your weight”, whether you are overweight, underweight or
somewhere in-between. Remember, our bodies and minds are hardwired for
scarcity, not abundance, hence the foolishness. I could go on and
What to Write About?
To be true to myself, I have to focus on the basics of healthy eating. What
to eat. How to get it. The choice is up to you. Your job is to be informed
and know how to make it (relatively) easy.
Many people are confused and that needs to be cleared up. Others are soundly on track and that should be validated. I will pick up on the issues I see in the “Ask Mary” posts, and in the Calorie Count forums and groups. Your comments, in turn, will give rise to new blogs, and round and round we go. And then there’s the news of the day and who knows what else. (Did I tell you that I loathe the Biggest Loser?)
And that's what it's all about.
