She lives in Venezuela. (Check out the location underneath the avatar.) I don't think she's a native English speaker, so let's cut her some slack. In any case I don't have any trouble whatsoever understanding what she writes.
I don't think she knows quite what she's talking about - no offense to her as she's probably basing her opinion on what she was taught in school, which just happened to be very outdated (nearly ancient) nutrition science. Unfortunately, there are some parts of the world where nutrition science is not yet quite as developed. I still think it was good of you to talk to the nutritionist, because it's always good to get the opinions of many people.Originally Posted by angelluzita
well that was really interesting to read elainev =), im gonna check out the links, by the way i went to the nutritionist today and she wasent suportive at all, i only went so that she could guide me on the foods, and she was like, eat chicken, for beaksfast, and meat and fish at launch and so on... i was like wtf???? didnt she heard i was going vegetarian? hhahaa well a waisted morning, she also said that yes it was true to get other suplements for proteins and iron, but that in the long time none of those could make the process that happend when we eat meat for the aminos (25 aminos in the body) and it a couple of years it would hurt my health =S.. what do you think of that?
