As a Toronto dietitian, I’m often confronted with a barrage of nutrition buzzwords that more often confuse rather than clarify. Today, let’s cut through the noise and understand what these terms really mean.

The Reality Behind Popular Nutrition Terms

Superfood The term “superfood” might evoke images of miraculous health benefits, but the truth is no single food is a panacea. Variety in your diet is key.

“Good” and “Bad” Foods Labeling foods as “good” or “bad” only fosters guilt and shame. Food is neutral; it’s all about how it fits into your overall diet.

Clean Eating The clean eating trend oversimplifies complex nutritional science. Remember, moderation and balance are essential for a truly healthy diet.

Cleanse Our bodies are naturally equipped to detoxify. Expensive cleanses aren’t just unnecessary—they’re often ineffective.

Bottom Line

Nutrition isn’t about strict rules or magical foods; it’s about balance, variety, and enjoying what you eat. As a Toronto dietitian, I encourage you to look beyond the buzzwords and focus on sustainable, healthy eating habits.
