Earlier, there were questions on nutrition, weight gain, etc. on the BB. I have those same questions… was wondering about diet recommendations. Last fall I took a nutrition class here at the U and looked up my instructor’s e-mail address today and asked a few of them for us. She has a PhD in nutrition and has alot of MD referrals. I’ll let everyone know if she has any specific recommendations concerning diet for GDers (other than the expected, “choose nutrient dense foods, no simple sugars – foods ending in “-ose”, no added stimulants (caffine), olive oil only and sparingly, etc.
Yeah, right…w ith Xmas 2 weeks away. Anyway, if there is anything we don’t already know, I’ll pass it along. A word of caution, if I may. If you consult a dietician, make sure she(he) is one and is licensed and/or a member of a professional organization. Anyone can call themselves a “nutritionist” and there are alot of quacks out there who will happily take your money.
You know that food pyramid we all see? Did you also know that it is a graphic for the Daily Food Guide. Ask your doctor for a copy of the Daily Food Guide if you are interested in making some diet changes and want something to refer to.
