Eating the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

I've spent way too much time with food freaks - superskinny people who avoid wheat one week and only eat tofu the next. So I was surprised to find out that Jackie Warner, ultrafit star of the show "Work Out" isn't that way at all. In fact, she said that she and her crew stop at Mexican restaurants every now and then when they're on the road.
