Authority Nutrition will help you make informed and logical decisions about your health, based on the best scientific evidence available.
Introduction

If you’ve spent any amount of time looking for health information online, then you’ve probably realized that the advice is conflicting and that people don't seem to agree on anything.

All of the gurus have a product to sell and most opinions are more about belief and personal experience than facts.

We make it our main goal to search the scientific literature for true answers, preferably from randomized controlled trials which are the gold standard of research.

Then we decipher the scientific jargon to make it understandable by professionals and laypeople alike. We make every effort to be objective, unbiased, honest and present both sides of the argument.

Key topics that are covered on Authority Nutrition include weight loss, healthy eating, myth busting, food addiction, specific foods and many, many more.

We are particularly interested in the low-carb diet, which we believe has been proven time and time again to be an effective treatment strategy for many of the world's biggest health problems, such as obesity, type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
