Question from Adrian R: If I have to choose between a healthy product with preservatives and artificial colors and not to consume this kind of food at all (e.g. yogurt, low fat cheese, vegetables, soy based products), what is worst?
Answers - Cyndi Thomson, Ph.D., R.D. I would argue toward the healthy diet and washing your produce thoroughly. But controlling body weight or achieving a healthy body weight is probably the most important of all.
Marisa Weiss, M.D. Wait—before you go, what about chocolate!?
Cyndi Thomson, Ph.D., R.D. In terms of chocolate, none of us should deprive ourselves of our favorite foods. But the dietician in me would recommend a sampling of dark chocolates over other chocolates due to the higher antioxidant content.
