Good sources for reliable information?

So I'm doing my best to clean up my diet and eat sensibly, but there is just so much confusing and contradictory information out there. The only things a lot of people seem to agree upon are the ones for which I've seen the least evidence. (Not saying the evidence doesn't exist, just that no one seems to be quoting it.) I'm so confused!

Where do you turn and who do you ask for solid, sensible nutrition information? Any really great sources to recommend for non-extreme, sustainable diets?

I use cdc.gov and nih sites. My internist said the cdc site is a great one.

Thanks Sharon, I've been reading through the health.gov sites and the links from the cdc and finding lots of good stuff. Way better than Health Canada's.

If you are a gym member asking someone you admire for a little advice. Gym goers are usually very friendly! There are soooo many ways to eat clean, it's really a test and fail to see what best suits your lifestyle. Feel free to message me, I'll be happy to answer some of your questions!

Well I read a lot on the subject. I usually do not agree with the stuff that is published by men's or women's health.  Seems they just like to hop on the band wagon.

Some good websites are out there. Bodybuilding.com is one of my favorites,  they have a ton of useful information and always have references to what is published.  So you know it's more fact than opinion.
Muscle and fitness, lean it up, livestrong are all great websites as well.

If you have and specific questions you can ask or inbox me. I'm always willing to help people that have some sense of intelligence.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the advice! I don't have specific questions as much as just wanting to learn more, so the sites you've recommended will be helpful. I had looked at livestrong before - followed a link from another site - and found its layout very difficult to use, with the info presented in slideshow format and a lot of advertising. But maybe I didn't see the best part of the site, so I'll give it another chance. :)

Cheers!!!

Here in Britain the NHS have a website called NHS Choices with loads of evidence-based health info. Google that or Google the "eatwell plate" for information on diet. Hope that helps

Thought I should update and say that the latest research has resulted in a slight change to the eatwell plate.
