I’m a #Factivist”! I bust myths, minimize misinformation, and neutralize negatives. Stories that incite fear are appalling, whether they come from websites, popular media, health professionals, or anywhere else.
“It’s not nutrition until you eat it! Taste matters, and I know it because it matters to me, too. I may be a nutritionist but I’m also a “foodie”, and indulgence is an important part of enjoying my life. We can eat healthfully, but also eat well, and the two can live in the same space.
My indulgence mantra: It’s all about balance. Example: I’d never recommend a diet or eating style that wouldn’t allow for an ounce of dark chocolate every day. Indeed, there is no food you love that you have to banish forever. Enough said?
There are lots of serious stories about nutrition and food, but in any world, there also has to be an equal amount of fun and enjoyment with food. The world is round. So is www.cuttothechasenutrition.com”

I communicate evidence-based nutrition information:
I advocate for “nutrition factivism”! A few examples:
I live with my partner of 30 years and two rescued greyhounds. We divide our time between Manhattan and San Francisco. And I think there’s no better snack than a cappuccino and some well-made, very dark, chocolate.
“CuttotheChaseNutrition.com” embodies what I’ve spent most of my professional career doing: taking the complex nutrition studies and translating them into easy-to-understand terms. If you can understand it, you can do it.
