Last week I typed “keto recipes” into Google and in .45 seconds, 95 million results were populated, ranging from Instant Pot Crack Chicken to Bacon Blue Cheese Deviled Eggs.

When it comes to healthy eating, everyone has an opinion on what’s good, what’s bad, what’ll make you gain weight, and what’ll make you lose it. But every body is different — and just because a diet of all-corn worked for someone, that doesn’t mean it’ll work for you (and, um, we don’t recommend trying it.) That’s why we like to leave nutrition advice to the pros: dietitians and nutritionists who are always up on the latest in healthy-eating research.
