Jenn, seems like you and I just don't fit the mold when it comes to dietitians. I couldn't get any help from the dietitian with speeding up my metobolism with foods or food combinations. Even though I told her I control my blood sugar, keeping it normal through diet alone, she wanted me to eat high carb enough to send me into full blown diabetes and then accept a prescription for insulin because she thinks my slow metabolism is self-inflicted due to not eating enough calories and carbs. I've decided I'd rather be fat and have normal blood sugar than follow her advice.... I'll find a way to lose this weight one way or another and it won't be to the benefit of the pharmaceutical company for whom she works. I've come to the conclusion she's not educated enough to help me--thinks there's only one way to do things--her way or no way.
