Its not Richardsons fault; it just takes far more to understand the mechanics of human nutritional science than what can fit on the side of a cereal box (or even your average blog post). In the face of a discussion about the most beneficial ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids, for example, the whole do-gooder premise of those nutrition labels that were all so familiar with does start to seem laughableif only because we realize that we dont really know what language those labels are speaking after all. A few important takeaways from Richardsons article for those of us who are never going to be able to keep our palmitic and stearic acids straight: Not all calories are created equal. Yes, as Richardson points out, you can get 100 calories from, say, a banana or a bunch of potato chips, but that doesnt mean theyre equally nutritious or equally filling. Not all fiber is created equal, either. You want to look for a range of fibers, preferably from whole vegetables and fruits as well as whole grains . Supplementing your fiber intake with things like Fiber One bars is better than getting too little fiber, but its still not providing the diversity of fiber thats best for your body.

Nutrition and healthy eating
“Nutrition is one way people have direct control over the quality of their lives,” she says. “I hope to translate the science of nutrition into ways that people can select and prepare great-tasting foods that help maintain health and treat disease.” A St. Paul, Minn., native, she has been with Mayo Clinic since 1978, and is director of clinical dietetics and an associate professor of nutrition at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. She leads clinical nutrition efforts for a staff of more than 60 clinical dietitians and nine dietetic technicians and oversees nutrition services, staffing, strategic and financial planning, and quality improvement. Nelson was co-editor of the “Mayo Clinic Diet” and the James Beard Foundation Award-winning “The New Mayo Clinic Cookbook.” She has been a contributing author to and reviewer of many other Mayo Clinic books, including “Mayo Clinic Healthy Weight for EveryBody,” “The Mayo Clinic Family Health Book” and “The Mayo Clinic/Williams Sonoma Cookbook.” She contributes to the strategic direction of the Food & Nutrition Center, which includes creating recipes and menus, reviewing nutrition content of various articles, and providing expert answers to nutrition questions.
