Having Been an “Obese Dietitian” (short video)

This is the 9th entry in the series titled “Making Health a Habit”, which can be found here.

Making Health a Habit picks up where A Dietitian’s Journey left off and provides general health information that can be applied to almost anyone for lowering insulin resistance, keeping blood sugar at a healthy level, or maintaining (or building) muscle mass, or may simply be my opinion on different matters related to a low carb or ketogenic diet. Making Health a Habit are short videos (< 5 minutes in length) or short blogs on health-related topics and are quite different than Science Made Simple articles which are longer,  research-focused articles.

This short video is a continuation of yesterday’s but also stands on its own and are reflections on a polite challenge I received over the weekend on social media as to whether I was “an obese Dietitian” or “a Dietitian with obesity”.

What is the difference? Is it just a matter of semantics?

In this talk, I explain why I have chosen to use the term “an obese Dietitian” rather than the ‘people first’ term of “a Dietitian with obesity”.

Feel free to leave your thoughts on social media after watching the video.

Note: I misspoke myself in the video. I meant to say that I used to eat 65 g of carbohydrate with protein at each meal and 45 g of carbohydrate (not protein) at each snack.

If you’d like to know how I can help you with symptoms of overweight or obesity or some of the disorders that often accompany them, please let me know.

You can learn more about my services and their costs above under the Services tab or in the Shop and if you have questions, please feel free to send me a note using the Contact Me form above and I will reply as soon as I can.
