Smart Nutrition: Watching Our Weight In A More Fattening World

As we prepare to sit down for our holiday dinners, or graze the buffet at those New Year’s Eve parties next week, it’s a great stroke of luck that today happens to be Smart Nutrition Day here on Maryland Morning, when we check in with the Nutrition Diva, Monica Reinagel.

She’s a licensed nutritionist who blogs at Nutrition Over Easy, and whose weekly podcasts appear on Quick and Dirty Tips. Monica has, over the years, injected all sorts of common sense into our discussion of diet and nutrition.

Today, Monica and Tom talk about the recently published National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey. The dietary study shows that despite the modern-day focus on healthier eating and regular exercise, Americans gain weight faster and more easily than they did 30 years ago.    Monica has an explanation.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
