Doug Cook, RD MHSc CDE is Naturally Savvy's Preventative Health Expert.
Doug Cook is a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and Certified Diabetes Educator working at St. Michael’s Hospital. Doug’s strong professional, clinical and educational background, and years of experience, have made him a highly sought after expert in the field of nutrition. Doug truly understands the food, nutrition and wellness connection to health and well-being. He practices a holistic and integrative approach providing science-based guidance on food and diet along with nutritional supplements and natural health products where appropriate.
Doug is regularly called upon by the media to make sense of the latest nutrition and food issues. He is experienced in television, radio and print media and is a regular contributor to several publications. For over three years he wrote a newspaper column called the Vice Squad where he reviewed various food products not only on their nutritional merit but with a focus on the marketing angle and product claims which are a major source of confusion for most consumers. Most recently, he co-authored the book Nutrition for Canadians for Dummies (Wiley 2008).
In addition to his practice in clinical nutrition, he has a strong interest in sports nutrition and the role of whole food supplements and evidence-based ergogenic aids, such as creatine, branched chain amino acids and beta-alanine.
