The science of eating


What to look for on this episode of Smart Talk:

All calories are not created equal. 

Counting calories, dieting for weight loss and taking supplements all contribute to what many believe to be a long, healthy life.

Earlier this week, a study published by Tufts University found that while consuming vitamins and minerals can lower your risk of an early death, it is more important to focus on the food you eat.  

So what is the healthiest way to eat. Does it mean just counting calories or is there more to it? Where do fat, protein, sugar, and carbohydrates all fit in?

Everyone wants to eat good food that is also healthy, and we want to do so at an affordable cost. But what is the science behind these nutritional goals saying? 

Joining us on Thursday’s Smart Talk to discuss the science behind eating are Julie Stefanski, registered dietitian nutritionist and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, and Deanna Segrave-Daly, registered dietitian, blogger and author of the new book The 30-minute Mediterranean Diet Cookbook.
