So this is happening. I am joining the blogosphere, as they call it. I would like to take this time to introduce myself and explain why I think you should spend some time following my blog. I really do hope that you get something out of this.
My name is Diana and I grew up and currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I spent my 20's living in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara (go gauchos baby!). My parent's are both from Portugal. While living in LA, I was a personal trainer and also worked as a waitress/bartender in fine dining. I have always been interested in health and food, so going back to school for a Master's in Nutrition to become a registered dietitian nutritionist was a no brainer. I now am married with two kids and I work part-time at a local hospital. At this hospital I noticed that no matter what nutrition related ailment a patient might have, their weight was a contributing factor to their overall health. This realization has driven me to create a private practice of my own with the primary focus of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.
So why do a blog you ask? Well, having spent as long as I have in school, going through an internship and then studying for months to be allowed by the state of California to practice medical nutrition therapy, I get annoyed when people put out false information about nutrition. It's a young science, I get it. Because of this things are constantly changing and advice becomes confusing. That is why I am here. I hope to help you make sense out of all the chatter.
Stay healthy my friends,
