Marjo and I always go back and forth on what foods to eat, how often, and when to eat. So what better way than to consult an actual nutritionist to answer some of our and, most likely, your FAQs.

Question 1: Is Breakfast The Most Important Meal Of The Day?

Question 2: What's The Deal With Simple Vs. Complex Carbohydrates?

Question 3: Does Seltzer Water Count Has Hydration?

Question 4: Do Atkins And Keto Diets Work To Lose Weight?

Question 5: Eat Small And Often? Is Eating Before Bed Bad?

As you can gather from Garner's answers, this is not a one-size-fits-all approach.
