Nutrition

There seem to be an awful lot of people giving nutritional advice these days. In the past couple of weeks, I personally have come across trainers and supplement sales people offering up advice that was just incorrect. None of these people had any nutritional background or training yet they were freely dispensing advice. If you are looking for help in this area there are a couple of websites you can visit that give general and free information. The government site www.choosemyplate.gov/supertracker-tools.html  is a free site where you can enter both your food intake and your physical activity to see areas in which you may need to make adjustmens.  Another site for help with diabetes is

http://www.diabetes.org/food-and-fitness/food/what-can-i-eat/?loc=DropDownFF-whatcanieat  Again both of these sites give general information.  Your nutritional needs are based on several factors such as age, size, gender, health, activity level, medications, etc. Educating yourself is important and if you feel you need help, make sure the person you are speaking with has the proper training to help you.  What works for one person may not work for another simply because we are all different individuals.
