About TheFatNurse: TheFatNurse is a certified Family Nurse Practitioner involved in primary care with a special interest in obesity, heart disease and other metabolic diseases.
About The Blog: TheFatNurse started this blog after the conventional dietary advice taught in healthcare didn’t work for TheFatNurse. When the traditional low fat diet failed too many times, TheFatNurse started moderating carbohydrate intake by replacing it with more fats (yum!) and actually decreased weight while maintaining normal blood chemistries. This wasn’t what TheFatNurse was taught in school! This motivated TheFatNurse to look through more of the medical literature on fats along with mainstream media reporting and to share some thoughts on them.
