Find out how to eat like a health guru.
By Reina Berger
With every passing day, it seems like another diet fad is upon us. With so much conflicting information out there, it can be hard to cut through all the noise and get to the bottom of things. If you are wondering what to avoid on your path to health and wellness, try eating like a nutritionist. We spoke to registered dietitian Maya Feller to find out which foods she avoids at all costs. Here are her 10 picks.
Anything With the Works
Whether it's pizza, burgers, pancakes, or ice cream, Feller makes sure to avoid any item that says it comes with the works. If she wants a burger, she purchases high-quality meat, adds lettuce and tomato, and avoids the ketchup and mayo, opting for mustard instead. As for the bun, she opts for the whole-wheat variety and asks for salad on the side instead of fries. If she's ordering a pizza, she gets tons of vegetable toppings instead of sausage or pepperoni, and if she's going to have ice cream, she looks for a brand that uses five ingredients or less to keep it as natural as possible.
