Celebrity nutritionist Keri Glassman weighs in on reality TV star Jill Zarin’s diet in the new issue of OK! — on sale everywhere now!
Breakfast: “I have an orange the minute I wake up,” says the Real Housewives of New York City star. “It feels good, it tastes good, it’s clean. I’d rather eat a big orange than drink orange juice because just juice is really not very satisfying.”

OUR EXPERT SAYS: Energy Boost: “Even just adding a hard-boiled egg will round out an on-the-go morning,” suggests Keri.
Lunch: “I had an arugula salad with pine nuts, shaved Parmesan and tomatoes,” says Jill. “I squeeze lemon on it instead of using oil. If I know I’m going out for a big dinner, I eat light during the day.”

Snack:“I believe in snacking every couple hours,” explains Jill. “I eat carrots, edamame, lots of fruits — pineapple, watermelon, cantaloupe. I’m a big fruit person and I love chocolate. I also had a little baby Snickers bar!”

OVERALL: “Jill’s eating lots of real food,” says Keri, “but she ate too many fatty meat calories at night. Eating light in the day to save for the night isn’t the way to go. She’ll slow her metabolism and may end up overeating the wrong foods! Tasting is okay, but it can easily lead to overindulging.”
