Getting the Most Nutrition From
By Andy Bellatti
While the mere act of selecting and purchasing healthy
foods is a major component of eating well, improper
storage, preparation, or consumption of foods can dramatically
decrease the amount of nutrition we derive from them.
There are several strategies worth sharing with clients
and patients to help them tap into the full nutrition
potential of various healthy foods.

With Type 2 Diabetes Not Meeting Nutritional Recommendations
People with type 2 diabetes are not consuming sufficiently
healthy diets and could benefit from ongoing nutritional
education and counseling, according to a new study in
the Journal of the American Dietetic Association
by researchers at Wake Forest University School of Medicine
“The most important thing about controlling diabetes,
especially type 2 diabetes, is being able to manage
energy in and energy out, and the best way to do that
is through the diet,” says Mara Z. Vitolins, DrPH,
MPH, RD, lead study author and an associate professor
in the department of epidemiology and prevention.
Researchers conducted the study to determine what people
with type 2 diabetes were eating to make them overweight,
Vitolins says. The results were surprising, she adds,
because researchers found that a majority of the group
was not meeting food intake recommendations outlined
in national dietary guidelines.
