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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 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?
November Recipe of the Month
Ran out of time to carve your halloween pumpkin? Cut it in quarters, remove the seeds, bake it in the oven until soft and then make this yummy Thai Pumpkin Soup. For a quicker version that is just as good, look for canned pumpkin at the grocery store.
