The Verdict

“Tracy suffers from low blood sugar and has a nursing daughter with a dairy allergy, so she sticks to a gluten-free, low-carb, lactose-free diet,” says Dr. Richard Firshein of the Firshein Center for Comprehensive Medicine. “She could consume an additional 300 calories based on her size and activity level, however. I’d like to see her eat two or three more healthy snacks, such as veggies with hummus – the fiber would keep her feeling full.”
