15 Dangerous Things Nutritionists NEVER Eat – And Neither Should You
If you want to be successful, look up to successful people and try to walk in their shoes.
So if you want to be healthy, who should you follow?
Although the term ‘nutritionist’ wasn’t so popular a few decades ago, today we’re listening to these experts’ advice more than ever – especially since their voices can be heard much easier via social media. Of course, I’m not saying that every person labeled as a ‘nutrition expert’ is really advertising for the right things – but if you do find a trustworthy one, look closely at their own life habits.
The best way we can learn to live a healthier lifestyle is by adopting the same habits as nutritionists – but if you’re a beginner in the healthy eating area, going from tacos to broccoli may seem overwhelming.
So what can you? It’s easy: start by eliminating the most dangerous foods nutritionists never eat.
Today, we’ll have an inside look at some of the top nutrition experts’ recommendations as to what you should cut from your diet immediately, as well as their substitutes.

In fact, many studies proved that consuming beverages labeled with words like ‘diet’ or ‘sugar-free’ can counter-intuitively lead to unhealthy weight gain.
Amer says that she prefers to satisfy her sweet tooth by consuming smaller portions of foods with ‘the real deal,’ which is actual sugar.
