7 Winter Diet Tips Nutritionists Swear By
Prevent unwanted padding this season with the diet tips experts rely on to save their own waistlines
Give winter produce a workoutWhile some of your juicy favorites may look a little blah in the winter, you shouldn't automatically speed by the supermarket's produce section.
"The only way I've ever found success managing my weight is by eating lots of produce," says Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, author of "The Flexitarian Diet." "Fruits and vegetables are packed with nutrients and fiber and the real waistline magic comes from their high water content, which makes you feel full."
This season, Blatner parks her cart in front of winter squash (she loves roasted butternut squash "fries" dipped in curry ketchup and loads up on spaghetti squash instead of whole grain pasta); grapefruits; pears; clementines; and hearty greens, such as collards and kale (she mixes raw thin ribbon-cuts with a quick dressing of tahini, lemon juice, warm water, sea salt, honey, and cayenne). Other great cold-weather options: broccoli, kiwi, celery, and Brussels sprouts.
