Some of the supposedly “healthy” foods we eat may not be so good for us, after all.

So says holistic nutritionist Lyn-Genet Recitas. She identifies those foods which could actually be weight gain triggers for some of us in her new book, “The Plan.”

It’s a 20-day program to identify the foods to which your body is friendly and reactive. Reactive foods are triggers for weight gain and other negative health issues.

Highly reactive foods for most people 35 and older include many of the superfoods we’ve been told are healthy for us — salmon, oatmeal, Greek yogurt, asparagus, tofu, tomato sauce, black beans, turkey. Recitas labels these the Devil’s foods as 85% of her clients test as highly reactive to them. And the diet includes wine, chocolate, butter, sugar, and coffee.
