Make Smart Food Choices
Every day we make food choices, and for those of us seeking healthy options often find ourselves tripped up by seemingly safe if not favorable choices, only to find, well, read on..
Men's Health recently exposed unhealthy ingredients lurking in many popular foods, serving up a reminder that we should always read the labels
when buying any packaged foods.
Read Nutritional Labels
For regular readers of our WeightLossNYC™ diet
blog, you already know to read nutritional labels
with special attention to sodium
, sugar and fat
, and especially artificial sweeteners
especially high-fructose corn syrup
We've even advised you that organic foods
aren't always good calories
. Here are a couple more key examples of how food labels can expose the hype:
Duck the Dip
Even seemingly healthy avocado goes incognito when packaged as "guacamole dip" — watch out for such products offering even as little as two percent avocado. (Do you even want to know what the other 98% is?)
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that American men eat 7% more calories than they did in 1971; American women [are eating] 18% more—an additional 335 calories a day!”
Low Hanging Fruit
Popular yogurt cups with fruit on the bottom are often really laden with so much sugar negating any real benefit of favoring yogurt for your diet. Consider adding your own fresh fruits to healthier yogurt brands.
