I'm so glad you made it to Nerdy Girl Nutrition. I thought I might just take this first post as an opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Samantha Finkelstein. I am a Registered Dietitian working out of the San Francisco Bay Area in beautiful California. I believe whole heartedly in enjoying life, a major part of that being having a fun and loving relationship with the food that fuels us (for more on this, please visit my first born blog, The Nourished Soul).
I ALSO firmly believe in evidence-based nutrition practices. But what the heck does that mean?
Well, it means that science tells us certain things are true, and it also tells us that certain things are definitely not. Remember when we thought the world was flat? Thank you, science!
However, when it comes to our diets, there tends to be gray area and controversy all over the place. My goal here is to utilize my education and knack for communication. This is my forum for conveying my interpretation of the latest research around all things nutrition, and a resource for YOU to voice your confusion, concern, or curiosity.
There is so much I can't wait to talk about, but I am always open to suggestions, as I am here to help you! So tell me... What do you want to know more about?
I can't wait to get nerdy with you guys! Bring on the P-values and relative risk ratios!
