It’s a confusing nutrition world out there. “Low-fat” products are often loaded with sodium and corn syrup and other sweeteners, and may still be too high in fat to be wholesome; foods labeled “trans-fat free” may contain up to a gram of these harmful artificial fats per serving. So what’s a confused consumer to do? Canyon Ranch nutritionists recommend eating a variety of whole foods – the same fruits, vegetables, beans, whole grains, fish and lean meats that your ancestors ate. The next time you shop, ask yourself, “Did my great-grandmother eat this?” If the answer is “no,” pass it by.
