We're glad you found us!
Congrats on your educational plans. Keep in mind: the present "standard of excellence" in nutrition is still largely based upon erroneous research. Most of it isn't too detrimental...but some isn't as reliable as they'd have you believe. Look around you and see if our recommendations for the last 50 or so years has produced any healthy specimens! Do some independent research via the low/restricted-carb sites. There's good info there, much of it from respected medical practitioners (some of whom have recently exited active practice and are now coming forward to set the record straight).
Sugar addiction (and thus, insulin resistance) is a major problem for a lot of us. Most of us, I might venture. Unfortunately, they don't always take that final step to tell people that carbs are just complex sugars. Alas.
You'll find good info, experience, and support here! If you haven't made acquaintance with your Nutrition Tracker yet - DO! It's an awesome resource. The best tool SP has, IMO. That, along with these forums.
So happy to "see" new faces
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
