So many times I have heard from people that tell me their doctors say:  “Watch your diet”.  What in  the heck does that mean?  Perhaps we hear this from many physicians because they do not receive very much education in nutrition in medical school.   There has got to be a better way to inspire people about their lifestyle choices.  My recommendation:  Consult a nutritionist (watch for credentials) and read my previous post.  For diabetes help, look for the credentials “CDE” which tells us that  this person is a certified diabetes educator.  Many are also registered nurses or registered dietitians.  Some credentials are much better than others, so you have to be very careful when consulting a nutrition “expert”.  Read the related articles below for a comprehensive discussion of this problem.
