Amy Berger, MS, CNS, NTP, has a master's degree in human nutrition and is a certified nutrition specialist and nutritional therapy practitioner. She is the author of the e-book, "The Alzheimer's Antidote: A Comprehensive Nutrition and Lifestyle Strategy to Fight Alzheimer's Disease, Memory Loss and Cognitive Decline."
A proud U.S. Air Force veteran, Amy spent years doing what experts claimed were "all the right things" to lose weight and maintain optimal health, but failed to experience the expected results. Wanting to understand why the conventional advice about low-calorie, low-fat dieting and lots of exercise did not lead to the promised outcomes, she came to learn that much of what we currently believe about "healthy diets" is misguided, and, in many cases, downright incorrect.
Having learned these lessons the hard way, she has dedicated her career to showing others that health does not require starvation, deprivation, or living at the gym. Men and women cannot live by lettuce alone. Real people need real food! Amy loves teaching people they can lose weight, feel great, and be healthy while eating commonly "forbidden" but delicious foods such as butter, red meat, bacon, and cheese.
You can read her blog at www.tuitnutrition.com, where readers value her ability to translate scientific research gobbledygook into plain English. She writes on a broad range of topics, including insulin resistance, cancer, Alzheimer's, diabetes, and the madness that is the modern food supply. Low-carb? Paleo? Vegetarian? Pescetarian? Whichever strategy you choose, stick to the science! Amy is happy to remain true to her motto: "A source of sanity in the sea of nutritional madness."
