Why is the AND considered a nutritional authority by anyone? And why do they want a monopoly on nutrition counseling?

The "Academy" is a farce....everyone knows "most" dietitians are the same morons that create those gawd awful, unhealthy and inedible hospital Swedish meatballs and chocolate cake for a diabetic heart surgery patient....DUH! and shilling for Coca Cola and "corn sugar" aka corn syrup. Also, they've hijacked the name "Nutritionist" from REAL nutritionists so do your research wisely.

Awha, they are funded by some junk food companies and Coca-Cola. They surely have hijacked their name 'Nutritionist' from the real ones.
I had a good laugh, Thanks Carrie.

It's no wonder hospital food is such crap - the menus are chosen by these people!

Thanks for this article. It was very interesting & informative. I've learned to "listen" to my body. It tells me when I need veggies, or meat or fruits&nuts. !!!
