Very important.  Not important like I’ve just joined a new community and of course I agree to the Terms of Service of the new site without having really read them because who really does?  Really, these are important.  Read them.

  • This website is not designed to provide, nor does it give medical advice, professional diagnoses, opinions, treatments, or services to you or any other individual.  The website itself and the references provided, including links to websites publications, and organizations, are intended only as general information for personal educational purposes only.  This website and its references, as well as the inks provided to websites, publications, and organizations, are not a substitute for quality medical and professional care.  You should not use the information contained in lieu of consultation with your healthcare provider.  The author is not liable for any advice course of treatment, diagnosis, or any other information, services, or products obtained through this website or the links to other websites, publications, or organizations contained within.  Please consult your healthcare provider with any concerns.
  • I am not a medical professional.  If you think I am, then you need to add psychiatrist to the list of possible medical professionals you should be visiting.  I am not a nutritionist, dietitian, surgeon, bariatrician, nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant, nurse, or anything else that requires letters after my name. This means the information on this site is information, and perhaps advice, but is not medical advice, and cannot be construed as such.
  • I am not affiliated with any organization affiliated with weight loss or nutrition.  I am a mother to two very busy Vikings, a wife to a very quiet Viking, caretaker to a dog, two cats, many fish, and two aquatic frogs.  I do not work for any company beyond myself.  My opinions are my own – much to the chagrin of many I’m sure.  Ad space does not guarantee good reviews.  I will not be told what to type on my own blog, professionalism be damned.
