Thanks to the Nutrition Book Club at Syracuse U.

Before my University Lecture at Syracuse University on Tuesday, I met with nutrition students who started a book club and were reading Why Calories Count.

Here they are with bookbags printed with the logo of this blog site.

Thanks so much.  It was an honor and pleasure to meet with you.

all women… is this common?

Dear Marion,

I also read your fantastic book, and I want to thank you again for writing yet another eye-opening book that I wish all my patients could read (I am willing to translate it to spanish, by the way) in order to help them with the management of their obesity.

You are a constant reference in my talks and my practice.

Thank you.

So awesome! But where are the guys?! How do we attract more guys to dietetics? Someone should study this. Poor guys just don’t have equitable access due to prejudice about who should be doing certain jobs. :)

What I great idea! I wish I had done this at university with my course friends.
To answer ‘Where are the guys?’… There were almost as many men in my course, but I dont think the ratio of women to men in a book club would be quite so equal….

Hey, I was a dietetic student and I’m a guy :) Too bad I didn’t pay attention and had horrible grades. I was quite distracted being the one of the only guys in class and you can guess what the distraction was. Yay for men who care about nutrition science and evidence based medicine. I know there are plenty of guys out there who care about their nutrition but usually take other avenues for their nutrition guidance
