I have taken up swimming to lose weight and am seeing limited success. I need some advice regarding my diet. I am trying to eat sensibly. I have been eating nuts and dried fruit for snacks — is this just as bad as biscuits? –Allison
Nuts and dried fruits are a huge step forward from biscuits! Your quantity of nuts needs to stay around 2 Tbsp. To keep the total volume of your meal up so you feel full, try adding a dried cereal to your daily diet so that you have a 30/30/40 ratio of nuts, fruit and cereal. Other great snack options are soy beans, low fat popcorn, and yogurt. - Debbie J., MS, RD
