There's something about a New Year that's empowering. While January is just another month on the calendar, it's a fresh start, psychologically. The new year provides a clean slate on which to outline personal goals or define new, professional objectives. For me, it's about the later.
Being a Registered Dietitian, I've become more and more concerned about the rash of nutrition misinformation being propelled through the Blogosphere, and I feel there's never been a greater need or a better time for someone credible to provide science-based insights to help people understand what's fact and what's fallacy.
While I work in a communications agency, it's my job to provide sound, non-biased perspectives to colleagues, the media and clients alike. And that's what I hope to do here, on this page.
I'm not hoping to sway opinion in one direction or another. My goal is to educate, to deliver balanced viewpoints about high-profile topics and to empower you to make more informed choices and decisions.
Weekly, I'll address a variety of subjects — from food and nutrition to fitness and health — and answer your questions. I encourage you to "subscribe" (it's free) to the Voice of Reason. Doing so will automatically notify you when I post a new log. (Just go to the top of this page and click "subscribe." Click on "receive the Voice of Reason weekly," then enter your e-mail address. It's that simple.)
Now, let's get started! I look forward to receiving your comments and questions and to having some great conversations.
In good health,
