This week's question for your nutrition blog:
From: Trish S. (e-mail not disclosed for privacy)
Subject: fad diets?
My doctor has diagnosed me with diabetes and has told me to lose weight. I have heard about high protein diets, low fat/high carb diets, and many others. I want a sound diet instead of a fad. What type of diet is best given my situation?
After you answer a question on your blog please e-mail email@example.com with the link (so we know that you posted). The deadline
is every Sunday at midnight. We will post several responses in our next newsletter!Example: Christine's Blog
