Common Nutrition Questions
Food is a common conversation topic with friends and family. Since everyone needs to eat, everyone tends to have their own opinion about, and approach to, food. Couple that with an overwhelming amount of nutrition information in the media and it can be incredibly hard to get reliable, evidence based answers. Here are some answers to common questions that I get from students. If you have a nutrition related question, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
- If red meat is 'probably carcinogenic', should I stop eating it?
- Should I be reducing my sugar intake?
- Is a gluten-free diet healthier? What are the risks?
- I'm going to the gym more often, do I need to change my diet?
- Does morning exercise burn more fat?
- I've heard you shouldn't eat after 7pm. Is that true?
- Does drinking milk increase my risk of kidney stones?
- Should I be taking a supplement?
- Will eating carbs make me gain weight?
- Is soy safe to eat?
- Are there certain foods I can eat to decrease inflammation?
- Will calorie counts on restuarant menus help us eat better?

Guelph Student Foodbank - In an effort to combat hunger and poverty on campus and in the greater Guelph community, the Guelph Student FoodBank provides graduate and undergraduate University of Guelph students access to emergency food, anti-poverty resources, and referrals to other food security, anti-poverty and financial assistance groups. This service is always confidential.
The SEED - The SEED is a community food project of the Guelph Community Health Centre. About 16% of households in Guelph are food insecure (Guelph Wellbeing, 2014). Our goal is to change that by offering programs and services that tackle the root causes of poverty. We are supported by hundreds of amazing community members and by many partner organizations.
Sustainable Market - Some of us eat local, others eat organically, and for others, affordability is king. We believe in bringing every household (whether small or large) affordable, high quality goods from farms and producers that meet our very strict standards. This is why we operate with no membership fees, and disclose with pride, where we are sourcing YOUR food from.
