    Maybe he should put a big disclaimer on his front page; something like, "I am not a licensed nutritionist. Any advice contained on this website should not be taken without first consulting a doctor."
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

        This reminds me of a post on my Facebook today to which I replied that we are politically correcting ourselves out of existence - and maybe that will be a good thing for the earth, if there is anything left, of course.

        The other post was in relation to men now being afraid to stop and help children in trouble for fear of being labelled perverts or worse.

          This sucks, that website was a huge help to me when I was first diagnosed. It dissuaded me from following the RD's advice to eat 250-300g of carbs a day (and quadruple my insulin dosage to compensate). I would be a metabolic mess if not for this guy's advice.

          And good to know...since I live in NC.

            Ahh, just read more into it. Apparently he was charging a small fee for 1 on 1 dietary counseling. THAT would be a problem. But usually they start with a cease and desist letter before filing charges.

                Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

                  I'm from NC and this does not surprise me. I hate that it's happening, but still. Not surprising.

                    It's a bit soul crushing to have to give CW answers to pass all your courses though...

                      I don't see it as any different than writing a book about it and selling it, however, he's not selling a book. In the eyes of the law, he's selling a "service" by charging people for his advice about nutrition...that's what's gotten him in trouble.

                      To sell a service you have to have a license and be certified. To sell a book, you don't have to have any qualifications.

                          Wow, this looks like something the state of Louisiana would try. I'm sorry I just don't see how they can legally do this. I mean nobody is holding a gun to your head making you read this blog and live this lifestyle. Who knows maybe they're all in cahoots with big pharma.

                            Wow, no CISPA necessary... maybe because it's only in the state of North Carolina.
