Doctor insights on:
Not necessarily: There is no single diet that is best for everyone. I believe it is wise to minimize sugars and simple starches, but i believe a diet with whole grains, vegetables, fruit and low-fat proteins is healthier than a strict low carb diet (which is relatively high in fat and protein).

Plus, most smoothies have added ingredients like sugars, syrups, powders, etc - unless you make it yourself. ...Read more

Unlike tomatoes which are FRUITS..used AS vegetables. Think about it...tomatoes in vegetable salads NOT in FRUIT salads! Hmmm and BTW, is the plural of potato, potatos or potatoes?

Not corn flakes!: I don't consider corn flakes a healthy diet choice, esp. If not organic as they are genetically modified and contain bt toxin .

Organic eggs are a good choice, but fruits, veggies, nuts & beans are good choices too. See my comment:. ...Read more

Also, skip the salty and high fat toppings (like ranch dressing) for the veggies -. ...Read more
