I'll admit, I was away so long, I didn't even know what was happening.
I used to go to [redacted]people from time to time, and it seemed like many friends weren't there anymore. Then I caught a blogpost by a low-carb friend explaining the reason she wasn't there as much anymore.
It seems like last November, our favorite CW dietitian, Becky Hand, wrote a very damning article about a low carb diet. You can read more about her lies here .
You will note that unlike other blog posts, this post has no comments. That is because the comments were taken down after tons of people complained about her post. In the comments section, members expressed their outrage. All the comments were erased and the blog post was edited. Now you will see low carb myths, where before, she called them low carb lies. It looks like the list of lies has also been edited since the last time I checked.
Some of my friends started some threads about this in the main message board. Many were erased. This is what remains.
I wonder if there will ever be a time when registered dietitians can be considered criminally liable for refusing to offer diet advice that can really help diabetics and people with metabolic syndrome. There is plenty of data, they can't continue to deny that, and lie about their diet advice.
So, I am doing a bit of decluttering and taking my page down.
