This month, as usual, more people have sought me out to quiz me about the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I went to school.
Often, special, positive-thinking, health-minded folks track me down to ask me if they should attend this world's largest nutrition school.
Given that I'm on deadline for my next book, The Sugar Shock Diet for the amazing publisher, Hay House, I'll quickly answer your questions.
(FYI, this is the follow-up book to my first book, Sugar Shock, which I was researching and writiing while attending IIN.)
Please note that while I can share my personal experiences, I'm not an IIN staffer. I am, however, an Ambassador though now — a very part-time thing I took on so people can ask me about the school.
What I've found is that inevitably, people ask the same questions over and over again. That's why I've prepared a number of blog posts to to help you out.
First, let me refer you to perhaps the best place for answers about IIN.

One thing that I loved about IIN is how people are encouraged to follow their passion and find one area where you can most help people.
