- 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.
