Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    A different approach to dieting

    March is National Nutrition Month. “More than one-third of adults are trying to lose weight, but few have long-term success.”

    If this sounds familiar, one alternative option is to consult a professional.

    “People can expect to get valuable information from a registered dietitian on a personalized approach to nutrition, one that’s tailored for what they can and want to do,” says Bernadette Latson, assistant professor of clinical nutrition at the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center.

    “People fail at dieting,” she continues” because they set unrealistic goals or can’t stick to a plan, but dietitians can craft a specific plan so people can incorporate change into their lives for the long haul.”
