7 Foods a Nutritionist Would Never Eat
Nutritionists and dieticians play an important role in the health and fitness industry, but not everyone has the time or the money for a one-on-one consultation.
So I’m here to help, by reviewing 7 foods a nutritionist would never eat. All of these culprits are based on the principles of my Clean Eating Diet. Although it’s helpful to know what to eat to get healthy and stay fit, it’s also helpful to know what NOT to eat. Whether it’s losing weight or building muscle that’s your goal, these are 7 foods you need to remove from your diet immediately!
7 Foods to Avoid on Any Healthy Diet
1. Diet Soda – Diet soda is sweetened with artificial sweeteners like aspartame, and trust me, there’s nothing that nutritionists hate more! Artificial sweeteners have been shown in a number of studies to completely throw off your appetite and hunger, leading to weight gain over time.
Go for a beverage that’s full of nutrients to support a healthy lifestyle, like this VPX Coco Fit Coconut Water.
2. Non-Organic Strawberries – Studies have found residues from up to 13 chemical pesticides on any one batch of strawberries. These things are literally doused in chemicals, to the extent that strawberry farmers have to wear protective suits when spraying them.
There’s an easy solution for this one. Simply opt for organic strawberries. They may cost an extra dollar or two, but personally, I think it’s worth it.
3. Rice Cakes – These have become a snacking favorite for anyone trying to lose weight, but rice cakes can be pretty deceiving. They may seem like a light, low-fat salty snack, but they’re actually really high on the glycemic index. White rice is pretty much just as bad as white pasta, and any diet high in carbs is bad for toning and fat loss.
