OUR NUTRITIONIST SAYS:

Where's the beef? Although, it's fine that Jackie gets her protein from fish and vegetables it seems like wonder woman may need to eat a bit more food as heavy workouts require more calories and (more important) nutrients. Dairy is a common allergen and can cause a lot of problems, however quality dairy products may add calcium and B12 to Jackie's diet. Other than that, it's pretty hard to say much about someone's diet that contains so-called miracle foods. Jackie clearly gets her greens and a fair share of omega-3 fatty acids from all that fish-foods often missing from the Standard American Diet. I'm wondering if Jackie's diet isn't a little too perfect! After all, a cupcake once in a while is nourishment for the soul.

OUR NUTRITIONIST SAYS:

I would love to see Ted eating more home-cooked meals. Even the best restaurants don't always use quality unrefined oils or the best quality produce (although eating at these restaurants is certainly better than eating at Popeye's.) Maybe Ted could trade places with one of the Top Chef contestants and run to the market, purchase some fresh, quality ingredients and whip up something truly amazing and nutrient-dense in 10 minutes. …
