As registered dietitians, we tend to be Googling names of deficiencies, diseases and conditions. That’s because we’re in the medical field!

What are the aches and pains of your ideal audience? What exactly are they typing into Google? Those are the words that need to be in your blog post, specifically in the title.
We are a diverse field, and we really shouldn’t all agree anyway. Our field is too young, there is a lot of controversial stuff and the science is unfolding as we speak.
It is totally ok to swim upstream. Just make sure that your claims are based on good science and cite your sources. It wasn’t that long ago that leaky gut was scorned as a myth.
Or any vitamin, really. But I have to say, I do have a soft spot for Vitamin D.
