I need to rant. I have a friend who keeps hiring nutritionists that give her absurd restrictive diet to follow and every time she does this she fails and gains all the weight back and more. I also used to struggle a lot with my weight, but was able to lose a significant amount with diet and exercise. I have very kindly and subtly offered my advice in the past, but she always brushes it off. She just told me about the diet her new nutritionist put her on and it makes me want to scream!

No matter what anyone says it’s literally just a calorie deficit. Literal thermodynamics

likesmarthelpfulfunny

It def is a vicious cycle. I agree. I try to keep my calories consistent and just workout hard. Some weekends I eat more. But there just life, I don’t try to chase it down with even more training. It’s about balance and longevity.

Tell this person to see a dietician instead of a nutritionist

I mean this in the most genuine way possible—I wonder if your friend needs therapy? It could be a deeper rooted issue than just trying to lose weight?

Maintaining a healthy weight is important, but short cut diets are dangerous. For both mental and physical health.

She is in therapy (or at least was), but I think it’s more of a laziness issue in that she’s seeking a shortcut to avoid major long term life changes 🤷🏻‍♀️

As a dietitian, this breaks my heart. Something for your friend to look into, though, the title “dietitian” is different from “nutritionist” pending the state or country you’re in. Where I live, dietitians need 5 years minimum of education and nutritionists can take a 6 week course and be certified. Have your friend look into the quality of who she’s listening to, as it sounds concerning.

It's kind of a problem with capitalism, the most profitable way to be a nutritionist is to generate repeat business so it has to work enough for people to believe it's effective but not enough to actually cure them

Recently I got call from recruiter for job opportunity in SAP. It was for 10+ years experience and I had cleared their first round of online assessment - some questions related to ABAP and OO.
As she gathered some info about my experience and education, she found out that I did my BSc IT. She said it should be minimum Engineering degree or MCA to proceed with interview. I was surprised I was rejected for a role inspite of having 10+ yrs of experience in the field due to education qualification

So I recently started a position with Fox. When it was presented to me in interview, I was told I would be working aligned with Fox Sports & Entertainment, not so much News.
