In this episode I ruffle some feathers by stating the problem with dietitians who give all the wrong advice about diabetes and why there is a serious problem with the anti-diet crowd who wrongly assume that all diets are doomed to fail and that BMI doesn’t correlate to health.
As always, I raise the difficult topics that others won’t, try to explain the nuances of this subject and why they are wrong.
