What a Nutritionist Eats

So I was flipping through my Marie Claire (don't judge me it was a free subscription) magazine last night and came across this article, "I'll Have What She's Having". They ask the top 5 nutritionist to keep a food journal. This is what one of them eats on a regular day.

Natalia: 5'7" 117lbs
Breakfast: lemon tea with fresh, raw grated ginger, a squeeze of lemon and Stevia to taste. Mountain valley spring water.
Lunch: nothing
Dinner: one small watermelon, 2 cantelope, 2 bananas, smoothie (pineapple, avocado, kale, alfalfa spouts, coconut water, mint)
Dessert: box of Salud macaroons

Are you kidding me?!?!? So what she doesn't eat all day except fruit at night then pigs out on box of macaroons?!?! Which could just be small handful in the box. That's not the point.

How is this healthy!??! She charges up to $850 for her personalized programs. She then goes on in the article to say she doesn't recommend her diet to beginners. Really!?!?

The next girl is the same height but 147 lbs. She eats all day (healthy) and consumes the same calories as the one I just described. I think I would trust her a heck of a lot more than the stick that only eats fruits.

I was seriously shocked to read that. Just thought I'd share. ;)
