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.
Processed meat and deli meat like beef jerky, salami, hot dogs, and bacon are loaded with sodium, nitrates, and preservatives. Feller avoids these items because she is watching her sodium intake and wants to reduce the risk of developing heart disease and hypertension. If you can't go a day without your favorite sandwiches, swap out deli meat for hummus, salmon salad, or baked chicken breast.
