Food and Nutrition Labels

Start Reading The Label On Everything You Buy

Marketing has gotten extremely clever; most loaves of bread say "healthy grains" on them and you turn over the package to find a label laden with partially hydrogenated oils and corn syrup. Whole white flour is just another word for white flour. If it doesn't actually say Whole Wheat, it's not whole wheat. Whey is another word for dairy. Even if the package says no trans fat, it could still have the bad stuff. You have to read the label no matter what, you can easily calculate the fat grams and you can learn how to count points. Once you're comfortable and "fluent" in a food label, you can figure out how to incorporate healthy foods in your diet and your nutrition plan. Don't be intimidated and don't be lazy. Always flip over the product and read the ingredients.
