So who else might you find on my list of people not to ask? Registered dietitians. Yep, thought I heard a few gasps out there..again, there are ALWAYS exceptions. It has been my experience that most RD's (unless specifically sports trained) have tremendous knowledge regarding clinical settings, acute illness and disease management. These settings are quite different from sports performance as well as physique improvement. In addition, RD's (and doctors too) tend to also advocate things that I would not even consider food. (We will get into that later, I promise)
No doubt this post is going to ruffle some feathers, but it needed to be said. Not all doctors, personal trainers or RD's are clueless. Just be sure yours isn't before you blindly follow their advice.
I get it, you want the answers..but asking someone that doesn't have them is just plain silly. Remember the analogy of the task at work??? Same thing!!! Taking steps just to take them is a sure way to end up frustrated.
Well, you are still here so I'm assuming you are interested in what advice I have for you regarding your food log and your goals. So let's get to it...next up, what your breakfast is doing for you (or better yet, what it is doing TO you) and what you SHOULD be eating.
For now- asking the RIGHT person = Applause!!!!
