1) You will never hear them incorrectly advise you to eat meat because you’re anemic. And if you have anemia, they would work up the real cause, which has nothing to do with avoiding meat .

2) They would never incorrectly advise you to stop eating fruit to lose weight.

3) They would never incorrectly advise against eating healthy carbs such as legumes, fruits, grains, and vegetables.
Instead, they would encourage the consumption of more vegetables and healthy carbs to get more antioxidants and micronutrients.

4) They would never incorrectly advise you to eat a high fat diet and included eggs and butter in your diet because “fat doesn’t cause coronary disease.” Note: if they did, please walk out immediately because they haven’t really studied the literature very well. Yes, cholesterol is a problem and causes coronary artery disease.

5) They would never incorrectly advise you to eat a low carb/low fiber diet to avoid bloating. They would tell you perhaps you should start slowly increasing fiber in your diet to build up the good bacteria in your gut. Yes, that includes beans. 

6) They would never incorrectly advise you to avoid soy products because it causes cancer. Again, if they did, they haven’t read the studies.

7) They would never incorrectly advise you to eat dairy for calcium. Instead they would ask you to eat healthy sources of calcium like green leafy vegetables.
