How To Read Nutrition Labels
“Once you’ve learned how to read nutrition labels,” explains dietitian Kim Gomer, “you’ll find that zeroing in on the truly healthy food items in your market is much simpler and faster.
“In fact, with the right tools, which we teach in this video, you’ll be able to scan just about any food product in 20 seconds or less.”
You’ll learn, too, how shockingly deceptive the marketing on the front of packages can be. What you think is a healthy food may be anything but!
Here’s a good example. Too many people, unfortunately, think the “110 calories” posted on a 20-ounce bottle of cola means they’re drinking 110 calories. Not so. You’ve got to multiply the 110 calories by the total number of servings (in this case, 2.5) to realize that you’re actually downing a whopping 275 calories.
And did you know that plain, ordinary bread is our largest single source of salt in the U.S.? Many brands have more sodium, per serving, than potato chips! But the good news is, there are healthy breads in grocery stores, and it’s easy to find them (and leave the salt licks behind). Get all the key tips in Pritikin’s “How To Read Nutrition Labels” webinars.
