How to Read a Food Label

Do you know how to read food labels?  Do you take the time to read a food label?  Just because a package says "Natural" or "Good for you" or "Healthy" doesn't always mean that it is.  So educate yourself on what exactly is in that package of food you're eating.

For a good example of label information, check out this link.  You will learn about...

  • serving size - most important
  • fats
  • sodium
  • fiber
  • cholesterol
  • calories
  • sugar
I was asked by several people this week about what to eat to lose weight.  Remember, first of all, you must use up more calories than what you take in.  Concentrate on fresh fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains. Check out my video about Foods to eat to lose weight, which you will find under the VIDEO TAB at the top of the page.

You can also look here to read my past post about the things that I typically eat.
