Nutrition Detective

Uncovering Health and Nutrition Issues for the Real World.

About Me


While working with patients and talking with members of the public, Samantha  noticed that nutrition can seem like an overwhelming and complicated topic. This blog will take the messy world of nutrition and health research, investigate it to find the truth, and deliver it to you in an easy to understand manner.

Samantha Thiessen is a registered dietitian (RD) with over 10 years experience in the areas of clinical nutrition and nutrition communication.  She currently works in the area of cardiac rehabilitation and teaches at Ryerson University. She has lived, worked and travelled around the world, including Australia, Singapore and Canada. She (and her taste buds) enjoyed the global experience with all the sights, sounds and especially foods to discover.  One of her proudest achievements is the publication of a baby cookbook, First Foods (Marshall Cavendish, 2007).

I am the Nutrition Detective:  a health professional passionate about nutrition and health issues but frustrated at how confusing it can be for non-health professionals. This is my take on health and nutrition topics, using my experience as a backdrop and expert knowledge to analyze the real issues for the real world. Thanks for stopping by (and tell your friends).
