Our host Dietitian Cassie invited on a very special guest co-host in Las Vegas-based registered dietitian Andy Bellatti, RD. Andy started an organization called Dietitians for Professional Integrity designed to hold the dietetic profession to higher standards in their financial and ethical sponsorship relationships with companies like Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Kellogg’s, and other Big Food giants. He believes, just as Cassie does that “the American public deserves nutrition information that is not tainted by food industry interests.” Listen in as these two talk passionately about this incredibly important concern in the field of dietetics.

Today’s guest friends are George Bryant from “Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations” and Jennifer Matthews (aka Naturopath Jen) from “All Things Low Carb High Fat” sharing their thoughts with Cassie and Andy about some recent health headlines, including the SECRET HEADLINE about getting more people to start taking statin drugs as well as the nutritional health lessons for dietitians that a chip maker had to share, how Oscar Meyer is trying to reach the adult population with one of their traditionally kid-based food products, the surprising end to the debate over margarine vs. butter, the problems with the “food” available for sale at Wal-mart, and so much more. Plus, don’t miss the very end of the show to hear some delicious recipes and cooking tips from these amazing guests. It’s time to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let’s talk!

    Re: Big Food in the nutrition game

    If Big Food (particularly fast food) didn’t subsidize the continuing education of RD’s and nutritionists, there wouldn’t be the tie that binds. As it is, if RD’s show up for 3 informational lectures on a Big Food or fast food product, they get 1 point on their Continuing Ed scorecard. Since RD’s are required to gather at least 100 points in X number of years (as well as testing) to keep their credentials, you bet they’re going to flock to those sessions like seagulls all year round, wherever they may be!

    Is it any wonder why they’re so indoctrinated? They probably spend more time going to there sessions than actually working with people (which may be a GOOD thing)!
