Dr Caryn ZInn is a Registered Dietitian and sports nutritionist. Her master’s degree was in the area of sports nutrition and her doctoral studies focused on how to achieve sustainable weight loss. Caryn currently combines academic work with her own clinical dietetic practice. She believes this mix of academia and practice keeps her real and on the cutting edge of knowledge (and busy).
It has been several years since Caryn altered her nutrition philosophies from the mainstream “food pyramid” approach towards the whole-food, LCHF lifestyle. “When LCHF first came onto my radar, I initially dismissed it – after all, it goes against the grain of much of the perceived academic wisdom. But going back over the evidence has convinced me the current recommendations are based on flawed science,” explains Caryn.
Known as “The Whole-food Dietitian” and a leader in this field, Caryn’s mission is to influence the thinking and practice of the dietetic profession to understand the potential improved health benefits of LCHF nutrition.
