Nutritionists Eat Bagels

"About once a week, I'll treat myself to a plain bagel from Ess-a-Bagel (a famous New York City bagel shop) with peanut butter on it. It's not as nutritious as my usual morning meal because it's made with white flour and doesn't have as much fiber or vitamins. But it's delicious!"
-- Lisa Young, Ph.D., R.D., an adjunct professor of nutrition at New York University and author of The Portion Teller

My Typical Breakfast

Oatmeal with a little brown sugar, a cup of organic low-fat yogurt with blueberries and flaxseed and a small glass of grapefruit juice.

My Favorite Lunch

A slice of veggie pizza, which I get every other week. Otherwise, I have a wrap with hummus and vegetables or a salad with grilled tuna, salmon or veggie burger.

The Healthy Dinner I Cook Most Often

I bake chicken that I've coated with garlic powder, paprika and barbeque sauce and eat it with saut?ed broccoli and a baked sweet potato.

I Eat Dinner Out Three Or Four Times A Week

I usually order fish with a sauce that I couldn't make at home. Recently, I had pan-seared red snapper in a red sauce with rice pilaf, saut?ed vegetables and a Bloody Mary.

I Snack at 4 P.M.

I don't eat dinner until after 7:30, so I need a snack to help me last. I rely on fresh fruit cups, whole-wheat crackers spread with peanut butter, and frozen yogurt with peanuts.

Road-Trip Treats

Barbecue soy crisps and a V8 juice.

The Food I Love that Happens to Be Healthy

Berries. I like to microwave frozen ones until they're hot and saucy and pour them over low-fat yogurt.

Favorite Comfort Food

Peanut butter, particularly peanut butter ice cream. I'll have a scoop twice a month.

How I Maintain My Weight During the Holidays

If I eat a big meal one day, I eat less the next. If I have a big lunch, I'll have a small dinner. And at a buffet, I do only one lap.

My Must-Have Dessert

Apple crisp. I order it once a week and share it.

The Food I Would Never Eat

Mayonnaise. There's nothing I like less.

Yes, I Exercise

I swim for 30 minutes at least three times a week, take yoga classes and walk as much as possible.
