Nutritionist from H-E-Double Hockey Sticks!
Wednesday, March 05, 2008
Jeez...I heard it again, this time from the nutritionist...oh, you have PCOS, you can't lose weight!! Grrr. When I asked for specifics on how much harder I have to work or how much less I have to eat, she didn't know, OF COURSE.
Here's an excerpt of our conversation:
ME: I am really moving away from meat, and looking for help with non meat protein choices.
NUTRITIONIST: Well, how about a roast beef sandwich for lunch?
I kid you not.
So after hearing from her I can't lose weight and that roast beef has suddenly become vegetarian, I am pretty much throwing everything she said out the window.
Oh! And then she said, you need to get more exercise (before asking how much I exercise).
ME: I walk on the treadmill 5 days a week for 60 minutes.
NUTRITIONIST: You need to make sure you are exercising at least 30 minutes a day, take a walk on your lunch break.
Excuse my language, but eff you, lady.
Then she starts going on about inexpensive choices, when I DID NOT ask about inexpensive choices, I asked about NON MEAT choices. She obviously did not know who I am (I know that sounds incredibly snobby, but it's a VERYsmall town, and I am a big fish in it)
Lucky for me, she informed me that my insurance will cover two more trips to the nutritionist! I think I'll pass, thanks, and get my info from SP. I'm pretty sure SOMEONE on the SP website knows where roast beef comes from.
My Gosh. I'm speechless.
