When reading nutritional labels, there are a few things to keep in mind if you are hoping to make healthier choices.
For starters, begin by looking at the serving size. Often there are 2+ servings in each package.
Next up, take note of the number of calories and calories from fat in each serving. Try to keep saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium at a minimum, and avoid trans fats altogether. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Make sure that you are getting enough protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins/minerals. It is a great idea to look for foods that have a minimum of 1 gram of fiber for every 10 grams of carbs. Avoid carbs that come from added sugar.
Finally, remember the old “don’t judge a book by its cover” phrase and don’t judge a food by its packaging. By this I mean don’t just read “low fat” on the front of a box and assume that it means healthy. Low fat may just mean that it has less fat than the normal, full fat version. This does not mean that it really is low in fat. And, many “fat-free” foods are still high in calories and sugar. There are foods that are “Trans Fat Free,” but when you look at the ingredients list, you will notice other unhealthy fat sources, such as palm and/or coconut oil.
I grabbed a box of Mac n cheese as an example, because it is my daughter’s favorite food. While the nutrition isn’t horrible, it’s also not great. And definitely not what I would ever recommend for someone who is trying to lose weight.
