How can we enjoy dining out without derailing our nutrition? We’re talking about 1,000 calorie salads(!), why restaurants aren’t incentivized to offer healthy options, some of my favorite go-to spots, and more.
5 listener questions:
1. Reviewing the Acceptable Daily Intake standard of aspartame (e.g., diet coke)
2. Natural flavors in beverages
3. US vs. Europe standards
4. Cooking spray
5. Sweeteners, metabolism, cognition, and “confusion”
Some things seem so obvious we don’t even question them, like whether organic food is healthier than not. But is it? To answer, we’re talking about what the label means, regulations around food supply, and what the research says.
Why do we worry about food additives but have so few issues with supplements? We’re talking about why it might be a case of misplaced vigilance, regulatory differences, and the money made on convincing us we could be “better.”
