Your top 5 posts viewed in 2014


I know I’m not alone in thinking that 2014 has flown by at a frightening pace. The year certainly has seen many nutrition headlines and unfortunately, it seems as though, too many of them were based on ridiculous research.

A prime example: the breakfast study where the conclusion was that skipping your morning meal was perfectly fine – as they compared a high sugar/ carbohydrate breakfast to no morning meal at all. Wouldn’t it be nice to see good science where the researchers compared healthy eats versus skipping breakfast?

The year also saw many sensational claims which continue to be made by the snake oil salesman of the year, Dr. Mehmet Oz.

Here’s hoping that the new year brings more sanity to nutrition research and communications.

Here’s a taste of the top posts that caught your attention on my website this year:
