Sometimes I think that these "professionals" are nothing more than shills for the pharmaceuticals and the big brand names.
I went to a dietitian ages ago and got told the same thing...problem is, she offered no effective way for me to control my sugar cravings or anything like that.
She said to me I should eat everything in "moderation". Well if I could eat in moderation, I would not be here, now would I?
The whole session left me really disappointed in the end, I got nothing out of it.
