Former registered dietician Cassie Bjork talks today about giving up her dietetics license for refusing to toe the industry line and now is helping people get the most out of their nutrition.
Cassie Bjork, RD from Cassie.Net is a globally recognized industry leader in weight loss, a highly sought-after speaker, and the #1 international best-selling author of Why Am I Still Fat?: The Hidden Keys to Unlocking That Stubborn Weight Loss. For over ten years, she has helped tens of thousands of women and men achieve the bodies and lives they want—not by starving or skimping, but by eating foods that fuel effective and sustainable weight loss.
After nearly a decade as a licensed dietitian, Cassie relinquished her dietitian license after a five year battle with her state licensing board over what she could teach. This is the story of how governing bodies are influenced by the Big Food industry and why outdated diet approaches are still prevalent—even in the face of contradicting scientific findings.
Listen in today as Jimmy chats with Cassie about the reasons why she gave up her hard-earned dietitian license, what people need to know about the shady side of the weight loss industry, how the Big Food industry is influencing dietitians, how to stand up to the Big Guy (in any situation!), why outdated, ineffective diet approaches are still prevalent—even in the face of contradicting scientific findings, how and why dietitians aren’t teaching science-based weight-loss and health, how to stay in line with your personal integrity in the most challenging situations, how to be better prepared when hiring any food/health professional to help them with their weight-loss and health goals (i.e. red flags, what to ask, and make sure they are hiring a science-based professional, how to not get punked!), and much more.
