Remuda Ranch Nutritional Philosophy

By Debra Johnston, RD, Culinary Services Manager at Remuda Ranch

American women and girls receive contradictory, and often questionable, nutrition messages from a variety of sources. Nearly every popular magazine displays articles about the latest quick-fix diet alongside a picture of a decadent chocolate dessert. Television commercials boast that a woman can lose ten pounds in one week, if only she purchases their product. Advertisements for fitness equipment use infomercials with the manufacturer’s promise of obtaining a perfect body in just minutes a day. This, coupled with an extreme zeal for thinness, puts many individuals at risk for eating disorders and serious nutritional jeopardy.
