Nutritional ignorance abounds

Dr. Michael Eades, who I wrote about in 7 Pounds, doesn’t think peanut butter sandwiches are health food.


Tiger Woods is first. His favorite snack is a peanut butter sandwich. Our registered dietitian, Sharon Richters, babbles (or raves, as the article puts it) about the good fats and protein in peanut butter then cuts to the pure idiocy:

The bread has carbohydrates. Whole-grain bread gives you longer-lasting energy, and regular bread gives a quick jolt of energy. It’s the perfect golf snack.

The white-bread, brown-bread double whammy. What wonderful nutritional advice. Somehow this woman has got it in her head that carbohydrates, and only carbohydrates, provide energy. It gets worse.
