Dietitans are bloody annoying. Not only do they know heaps of big words but they are constantly reading scientific journals which they quote from which makes them sound smart and that.
Most of them have a post-graduate education which means they reckon they know their stuff.
If you are trying to earn a quid from selling paleo books or products you are going to come into contact with dietitians. Either that or your customers will, and they will come armed with prickly questions.
But don't get intimidated. I have found the best way to win a debate with a dietitian is to use a combination of well-tested glib catch-phrases for a sustained period of time until they just give up and go away.
For your benefit I have prepared the following useful matrix* to help you out:
The Paleo Wank-Word Bingo Matrix
* matrix is just a wank-word for table.
How it works: just use one of each colour during a five minute debate and dietitian begone - they will give up and do something else, like saving someone's life or something.
Under no circumstances should you try to present any credible scientific evidence for your fad diet religion. They will ask you to do this, but it's a trap.
In a rare occasion that the dietitan persists longer than five minutes, just keep using the matrix for another five minutes but this time link to irrelevant studies on pubmed every single time.
I've taken the liberty of choosing some useful examples here:
This will make you look highly knowledgeable to your tribe, but will infuriate the dietitian who won't be able to stand it any longer and they will insta-rage-quit.
And then you have won! Simples.
Then you can go back to flogging paleo crap.
