How many calories should I consume at breakfast? Should it be my biggest meal of the day, or my smallest? The most important meal of the day should not be taken lightly. While you shouldn't gorge yourself on Belgian waffles, maple syrup, butter and bacon each morning, you should always begin your day with a solid breakfast. Make sure to include fiber (such as fruit), protein (eggs or milk) and carbohydrates in each morning meal. Many experts recommend taking in at least 25 percent of your daily calories at breakfast, but listen to your body and act accordingly.

When the country goes on anti-fat mood swings, John B. Sanfilippo & Son Inc. suffers. The Elk Grove Village, Ill.-based nut company has endured several fat-fighting episodes, but until recently it never benefited from health trends. Because of such protein-rich diets as Atkins and new heart-healthy claims available to nut sellers, Americans are increasingly snacking on the treats, tossing them on salads and seeking prepackaged foods with nuts. "This has been really a unique period," said Jasper Sanfilippo, the company's chief executive.

Nutritionists from the University of Maryland Medical System regularly contribute a guest post. The latest post, reprinted here, is from Shanti Lewis. "What diet should I follow?" is the most common question dietitians face. Dietitians seek foods that are nutrient-dense, budget-friendly and versatile. After surveying the group of dietitians at the University of Maryland Medical Center, it appears that there are five common foods that all of us keep on hand that meet that criteria: old-fashioned oats, nonfat plain Greek yogurt, fresh or frozen leafy vegetables, canned or dried beans/lentils, and unsalted nuts/seeds/natural nut butters.

American women can build stronger bones by eating small meat, chicken and fish portions.This sounds like heresy after years of weight-loss diets promoting 6- to 8-ounce "meat" portions at both lunch and dinner. But according to Creighton University's Robert Heaney, seven decades of research consistently show that high protein diets reduce calcium absorption.In November's Journal of the American Dietetic Association, Dr. Heaney says that whether your protein intake is high or low, every time you double your protein, you increase calcium loss by 50 percent.

For many centuries, lentils have been considered a "poor man's food," a cheap and filling source of protein that was shunned by those who could afford to eat steak instead.But lentils are moving up the social ladder. Restaurant chefs are putting them on plates with costly salmon and quail. Nutritionists are taking a new look at this food that's high in complex carbohydrates, fiber and protein and low in sodium, fat and calories. And these legumes fit very nicely into the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Pyramid Guide, which suggests eating six to 11 servings a day of bread, cereal, rice and pasta for a healthful diet.
