9 Surprising Foods Nutritionists NEVER Eat

Fat-free salad dressing

Don’t muck up your gorgeous colorful, healthy, salad by dressing it with a bottled fat-free salad dressing, advises Keri Glassman, MS, RD, CDN, author of The New You and Improved Diet “Although these dressings typically have fewer calories, they are filled with a long list of not-so-pretty ingredients.” A few of these unattractive items include sugar, high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors (such as yellow 5, yellow 6 and caramel colors, which is an ingredient found in soda).

“The way I see it, salad dressing should have fat!” she adds. “The fat helps keep you satisfied—among many positive traits—and helps you absorb all of those great nutrients found in the salad itself. Think about it: Would you buy veggies that are ‘vitamin and mineral free?’ So, don’t eat salad dressing that is ’fat free.’”
