Healthy Eating Tips

8 Pet Peeves of Top Dietitians

These nutrition gurus dole out advice left and right, and they have some serious beefs when it comes to the current concepts of food

Dietitian Pet Peeve #1: Replacing Meals with Energy Bars
Just because energy bars come in tiny packages that say they’re loaded with vitamins and minerals doesn’t necessarily make them a healthy choice. “A lot of them are nothing more than glorified candy bars,” says Sari Greaves, RD, nutrition director for Step Ahead Weight Loss Center in New Jersey. Not only can many be packed with enriched white flour, high fructose corn syrup, and other sweeteners, but also saturated fat and little fiber. “If you eat them in addition to meals, that’s an extra 300 to 400 calories in your day, which most of us can’t afford,” she says.To read the full article click here

Luckily, you can cut down on the time you spend trudging through a frigid parking lot and still eat healthy by stockpiling a few canned essentials.

But the following dietitian-approved tricks help boost the healthiness of ready-made foods. “The key is to know a few savvy ways to spin a can into a balanced meal,” says Sari Greaves, RD, nutrition director at Step Ahead Weight Loss Center in Bedminster, NJ.

Doctors Who Make a Difference

  • by Patti Verbanas, with additional reporting by Liz Donovan

    For six months, we have been asking our readers and members of the NJ medical community to share stories about “Doctors Who Make a Difference.” We wanted to learn about doctors’ under-the-radar efforts that are improving their communities and the lives of their patients on very personal levels — and recognize them for their efforts.

    Wow! The flood of mail we received! Our office was inundated with tales of philanthropic professionals whose efforts are changing lives — in addition to saving them. We learned about physicians whose compassion made difficult times for patients more manageable — acts of kindness and determination that resonated with our readers. We discovered doctors who put their patients’ well-being first to extraordinary extents, doctors who readers wrote were “the answer to their prayers.”

    The one thing we learned in reporting on these “Doctors Who Make a Difference” is this: New Jersey not only boasts some of the top doctors in the nation — they are also professionals dedicated to making our state and our individual lives significantly better.

    Here are some of their stories.

    Compassionate Caretakers

    Deborah Neiman
    There is no stronger patient testimonial for a doctor who has made a difference than this one written about Deborah Neiman, MD: “I am here today because of her diagnosis.” A number of readers wrote in to commend Neiman, an internist at Somerset Medical Center, for her Step Ahead weight-loss center in Bedminster and the special care she takes with patients. “Even if she is busy and behind,” one patient says, “she stops and takes time out for you.”

      There's no outrunning this one, alas: You lose weight where you tend to gain it, which is largely determined by genetics. For many women, that means the hips, thighs and, you guessed it, breasts."Fat storage is often concentrated in these areas as nature's way of preparing the body for childbearing," explains Sari Greaves, R.D., a spokeswoman in Bedminster, New Jersey, for the American Dietetic Association.
