My Favourite Nutritional Bloggers

Published on

Many people feel overwhelmed by the huge amount of confusing and conflicting nutritional information found on the internet. It is so important to approach nutritional claims from a skeptical point of view due to the abundance of misinformation that is shared (see my Nutritional Nonsense Detection Kit for tips on how to do this), but it is also useful to know who can we rely on to make sense of nutritional issues and to provide evidence based information to separate the facts from the fads.

Here are some of my favourite nutritional bloggers who provide trustworthy advice (in alphabetical order so I’m not picking favourites within my favourites!); I’m sure my list will continue to grow as the evidence based movement expands 🙂
