March is National Nutri­tion Month and in honor of that, this video is my first install­ment in a series of videos on nutrition.

It’s not some crazy, super sci­en­tific video, but real­iz­ing the mis­con­cep­tions and just plain lack of knowl­edge many Amer­i­cans pos­sess on nutri­tion basics, this video starts with my own lit­tle mini-rant about nutri­tion in Amer­ica and then cov­ers the basics of car­bo­hy­drates, pro­tein, fat and calories.

So enjoy! If it’s new to you, I hope it inspires you to learn more. If this is old news, share it with some­one you think might ben­e­fit from it!

    What a great video! I love your approach to food and nutri­tion. And you make good cakes (I was a tester!) You rock, Kris.

    Sadly, you are right–so many Amer­i­cans have no clue about nutri­tion. I work with peo­ple daily on their diets, and I am con­stantly shocked by what I hear. As a vegan nutri­tion­ist, I can’t wait to hear (and see!) what you have to say!

      Court­ney– I didn’t know you were a nutri­tion­ist! That’s good for me to know… one of my next poten­tial book projects might need some of your help…

      I will give the dis­claimer– this is a total basic overview and I’m no nutri­tion­ist, but the gen­eral public’s knowl­edge of nutri­tion is so dire, well, this is bet­ter than nothing!

        I thought you knew, lol. I would be more than happy to help you with any­thing anytime–just let me know!

    Shared this to face­book say­ing ‘For those of you fol­low­ing ‘qual­i­fied’ nutri­tion­ists watch this. I’m tired of hear­ing what those fad diet doc­tors say. It’s time for peo­ple to go back to basics :o) Thanks for shar­ing Kris.
