Are you a victim of "Nutritionism"?

I recently revisited In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan, after a stimulating conversation with fellow wellness professionals.  

Pollan defines "nutritionism" as the result of understanding foods "only in terms of the various quantities of nutrients they contain."  My guess is nutritionism appears to have a relative stronghold on many of us when we pause to consider how we're choosing what, when, how and why we eat what we eat.
