If someone wants to be a registered dietitian, nutrition degrees with dietetics tracks are the best option, because they fulfill all the undergraduate requirements set forth by the ADA and CADE. There are a lot of specific areas of study that would be otherwise difficult to complete.
...because we all know that he is only person in the whole universe who has any idea what he's talking about when it comes to nutrition. How blessed he is to be the only enlightened one!
If there's one thing that my professors always do is discuss the latest nutrition research with us. Geez, one ongoing project I have is to create a log of news articles on nutrition topics. We are always discussing the latest findings.
As for your comment on protein...I've found that it's the position of most dietitians that a lot of protein isn't dangerous, it's just not necessary for most people, especially if it crowds out other nutrients. That's when it becomes dangerous...when people take it to extremes.
They're all women so they must be stupid! They certainly don't know anything about sports!
First of all, you will hear a lot about soy from dietitians because it is controversial, specifically in regards to breast cancer and heart disease. It is also in many new products that dietitians must evaluate. Just because they talk a lot about it doesn't mean that they think it's the greatest thing in the world. They are mostly trying to figure out how it can best be used. The smart ones proceed with caution.
And you're right about them not caring as much about body composition. Dietitians do so much more than worry about whether housewives are getting fat. They serve people with diabetes, heart disease, celiac disease, renal disease, liver disease, gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, PKU, inborn errors of metabolism, chronic illnesses, cancer, AIDS, as well as preterm infants, low-birth weight babies, children with feeding problems, pregnant women, and post-operative patients. Just to name a few.
Do you think they care if Joe Shmoe has 10% bodyfat or 8.5%?
Please take your sexist and narrow-minded remarks somewhere else.
