I know this isn’t a normal topic of discussion for the podcast, but since she is a former graduate, I’m wondering about Diane’s thoughts on the Bauman College Nutritional Consultant program? I’m currently working in the corporate sector for a huge company doing an unrelated job (mostly to fund my REAL education/career aspirations), but have a Bachelor’s Degree in corporate training/professional development and am currently working on my MBA. I’ve set some pretty lofty career goals using my current work experience and a business plan I’ve developed for the last few years. However, my passion is in Biochemistry/Nutritional Studies and have looked into Bauman’s program to supplement those future career aspirations. Here are my questions:1. Would you recommend this program for someone looking to achieve some accreditation in the field? From what I’ve heard and read, Bauman’s curriculum and foundation seems to be in line with much of what I believe myself. I’d be taking the distance learning courses as I’m in Ohio.
2. How deeply does the program get into the biochemistry/science side of things?
3. What type of expectations should one have after becoming a Certified Nutrition Consultant as opposed to a standard R.D. program or M.S. in Nutrition program?
Thanks for all you guys do, look forward to the infinite wisdom from the show to end every week!
#2 & #3:
I have a two-part question. The first part is how to work out what is causing my persistent diarrhea. I regularly have to literally run to the bathroom. For example last night I just finished a my dinner and within 15 minutes i had to run. I ate some mashed parsnip and carrot with butter, 2 pork sausages and I made some onion gravy. All was gluten free, no horrible oils. I am thinking there was something in the pork but they are very ‘clean’ and I have not had issues with these in the past.I cannot pinpoint any common factor when I get these episodes. The only time that I don’t seem to have loose stools is when I consciously add more carbs in (sweet potato). I thought maybe I need to help my digestion with enzymes and cut back on fructose but not sure. I take a probiotic in the morning. I am not sure if it is helping.
The second question is regarding cystic acne. I had a flare up after eating out – I believe it was a nasty oil which has caused this. I feel completely inflamed. The only place I get this acne is the sides of my chin, especially the right hand side. Right now it is quite swollen with about 4 small, sore and hard cysts. My gums are also slightly inflamed. Do you think this is an allergic reaction? I also think I may be sensitive to fructose as I get those scary ‘am I going to make it’ moments when I eat some types of fruit. Sorry for the long winded question!
Similar question: I have IBS, I’m gluten sensitive, anything with refined sugar makes me bloat- and if I eat too many carbs at one time in thirty minutes or less I look like i am nine months pregnant. I have tried a lot of things but I need to know if i need to see a dietitian or get on a better eating program. Losing weight seems to be impossible- if I eat something wrong i take enzymes to help my stomach- I have a very sensitive stomach the bloating runs in my family but I do not want to look like this. My sisters do not have this problem, can you make some suggestions?
For someone a solid three months into a paleo plus dairy lifestyle and one month into pure paleo (no dairy), what are some things that you would recommend for curing IBS? Person experiences cycles of constipation and constant rectal pressure (not bloating) followed by diarrhea, often within the same day or even within the same sitting. Symptoms usually not painful. Paleo has helped, but not cured. If it’s a bacterial issue, I don’t want to eliminate FODMAPs, particularly inulin containing asparagus. If it’s a FODMAP issue, I don’t want to be restricting fermentable fibers like sweet potatoes (not to mention their only dense carb source) a la the Gaps diet and thus later potentially have to address a bacterial issue. While it’s all related, It seems that there is a very fine line here. The prescription for one might actually be the treatment for the other. Or am I missing something? Thanks!
Why does eating low carb (no starches) not satisfy me? I’ve tried large amounts of protein (20%) and fat (70%) with carbs from vegetable sources. 2hrs later I’m wanting to eat. For example my dinner last night; 350g fatty beef ribs and 300g cauli fried rice with 1tbsp coconut oil. After the meal I was full physically and mentally. 2-2.5hrs later I wanted to eat. I forced myself not to for another hour but gave in and ate a cup of rice and was satiated the rest of the night.
