Is Your Dietitian Educated by The Coca Cola Company?

Coca Cola Dietician

This is, unbelievably, not a joke. This is how sick our world is. Recently a report came out on how the largest professional association of dietitians in the US has sold out to Coca Cola and Pepsico among other junk food companies. And here’s a shocking example of what the food industry get in return.

A dietitian shared this example of a “shameful” webinar she was just invited to. Check it out. It’s The Coca Cola Company’s Beverage Institute For Health & Wellness that will teach dietitians about “Heart Healthy Lifestyle Counseling”! 

It’s a bit of a mystery. What is The Coca Cola Company doing offering professional health education?

I’ll tell you what Coca Cola is teaching the dietitians: It’s all about a balanced lifestyle. Sugar can be consumed in moderation as part of a heart healthy diet. It’s all about calories anyway. And don’t believe anyone saying anything else!

So when your dietitian uses those arguments, he or she might have been educated by Coca Cola.

The truth is that the more added sugar you get in your diet the less balanced it is. Sugar is consumed in vast excess by a large majority of the population today. And the more sugar you eat or drink the more calories you are likely to want. Consuming excess sugar makes you hungrier, then obese, then diabetic, then it gives you heart disease.

Unfortunately your dietitian might tell you a completely different story.
