I can't always get behind celebrity nutrition advice, but Oprah is one star whose eating habits I can support. She eats delicious, produce-packed meals and isn't afraid of the occasional indulgence. (Hello, wine and dessert!) Want to learn how you can achieve this balance, too?
Trying to lose weight in 2018? Trust me—another starvation diet is not the answer. I like to prepare high-protein meals and snacks that help me feel energized and satisfied all day long. Ready to get healthy without going hungry?

Even as a registered dietitian, I love treating myself to pizza, ice cream, and candy on occasion. I don't feel guilty after I eat these foods because I know they're a completely normal part of living. If you're currently setting aside a 'cheat day' for eating the indulgent foods you love, you may want to consider switching up your strategy—and your mindset. I use a few simple strategies, like adding in more physical activity, to stay healthy while indulging without any guilt!
When it comes to what and how to eat, new trends seem to pop up daily. So how do you figure out which fads to follow and which ones you're better off skipping? One food trend that continues to gain traction is the Mediterranean Diet, consisting primarily of balanced whole foods like fruits, vegetables, beans, fish, nuts, and whole grains. I love both the delicious flavors and the many health benefits of Mediterranean-style eating.
By now, you've probably determined that you can't eat the same way in your 30s, 40s, and beyond as you did when you were 18. But what should you be eating as you get older? Are there certain foods that will help you stay trim and fit? Certain ones that will help you age better?
Let’s face it: Weight loss is difficult this time of year. Even as a registered dietitian nutritionist, I know the struggle of wanting to chow down on one too many baked goods when faced with a holiday dessert buffet. However, taking control of my food choices during winter festivities can help prevent weight gain this season. Together, we can tackle the holidays, possibly even ending up a few pounds lighter!
