Mayo Clinic: My favorite website for accurate and up to date information. I highly recommend it for disease, nutrition, supplements and treatment information

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute: The “Ask a Nutritionist” is a great place to get information about specific problems with diet and supplements. Great site to check information that you saw online or that someone sent you in an email.

WebMD: Good source of information. I use this site a lot. In addition:     Portion Control and Size Guide Food portion sizes today are far bigger than they were in the past, which means we’re taking in far more calories than we realize. Understanding healthy and correct portion sizes is critical to long-term weight management. This printable wallet-size portion control guide will help to keep you on track even when you’re on the go, and be sure to check out the fridge-size portion control guide, too!”
