Dodge the diet disasters and find out what’s really healthy to eat

Americans are more confused than ever about what to eat to achieve optimal health.

Much of this has to do with questionable information coming from a variety of sources, from your hairdresser to the Internet.

While the hype around quick fixes seems alluring, the recommendations might not be based on science and the sources may not be credible.

This National Nutrition Month, Registered Dietitian Laura Buxenbaum from the Dairy Alliance is here to help us cut through the confusion and to stop falling for diet disasters.
