The Best Nutrition Advice

When you need professional nutrition or diet advice, don't be fooled by the titles "certified nutrition specialist" or "certified nutrition consultant." Although these sound important, they are not associated with formal nutrition training. People do little more than pay a membership fee to get them. For the best advice, work with a registered dietician (R.D.).

Healthy Living

Could your diet use a nutritional tune-up? A healthful diet has many benefits and it doesn’t have to be bland and boring. Add color to your plate with fresh fruit and vegetables, choose whole grains and low-fat dairy, and keep an eye on your portion size. Aim for balance, variety, flexibility and moderation.
