My journey to become a dietitian started with the discovery of trans fat. Yes, they had been in existence for many years, but I’d been unaware that these unhealthy fats were hiding in my food. It was only after attending a talk on the subject that I made the decision to become a dietitian — and I’ve never looked back.
A lot has happened since then. The Nutrition Facts panel now includes trans fat, some manufacturers have removed the stuff from their foods entirely, and bans on trans fat have been implemented or suggested in multiple cities throughout the country. In fact, Boston, Cambridge, and Brookline have all banned the use of trans fat in restaurants.
