Donna Psiaki Feldman, MS RDN, is a food and nutrition writer and author of “Food Wisdom for Women” and “Feed Your Vegetarian Teen 2nd Edition“.  She has been a registered dietitian nutritionist for almost 40 years.  In addition to Radio Nutrition, she blogs about topics related to nutrition and aging at, and has contributed numerous articles to the MyNetDiary blog.  Before graduate school, she started and ran the first-ever vegetarian cafeteria line at a small New England college.   Her eclectic work experiences include patient counseling, writing on health and diet, recipe development, food service management, college-level teaching, personal chef, nutrition research, software development and restaurant cooking.

My interest in food and nutrition started way back in high school, when I was on every fad diet imaginable.  That might not sound like a good way to start a career, but over time I understood how food and diet affect weight, mood, energy level, skin, digestion and anything else that has to do with physical health.

What is nutrition anyway?

Depending on your point of view, it could be:

  • supplements
  • fortified shakes and energy bars
  • a quest to consume the perfect amount of calories, protein, fiber or fat
  • an exercise in Eat-By-Numbers, counting calories or grams of this or that
  • eating as few calories as possible, not matter what
  • rigid and restrictive rules for “healthy” food choices
  • chasing the latest diet fad

I don’t think it’s any of those.  Originally nutrition was all about food and only food.  And since we do all need to eat food everyday, we need to keep the focus on food as our primary source of nutrition.  When we try to reduce nutrition to nutrients and numbers, we lose the sense that food should be enjoyed.  “Nutrition” starts to sound like the enemy of taste, flavor and enjoyment.

I started the Radio Nutrition blog to give consumers accurate and simplified information about food, diet and nutrition.  I don’t advocate rigid dietary restrictions or agendas, and  I don’t provide individual recommendations.  There are plenty of other websites devoted to those issues.  If you want reliable nutrition advice, consult a registered dietitian.
