Alcohol and the Menstrual Cycle: New post at Nutrition Nuts and Bolts

Last quarter I wrote a research paper on whether the menstrual cycle affects alcohol metabolism. I’ve summarized the paper over at Nutrition Nuts and Bolts (read the post).

Overall, the research doesn’t support the idea that the menstrual cycle affects the metabolism of alcohol, but like all science topics, more research could reveal something else. Read the post and let me know what you think.

Welcome to the site!

Hello there!

As an introduction to who I am and this site, you can read the About page.

For now, I want to share one of the posts that I have written at Nutrition Nuts and Bolts. It describes what a Registered Dietitian (RD) is and the requirements that need to be met in order to be called an RD.

This is important to me because my goal is to become an RD. Understandably, in our acronym-saturated language, not everyone knows what that is, so this post should help with that and tell you a little about the track people take to get there.

Thanks for reading.
