I have been asked what I look on food labels when I look at a product in the grocery store. I thought that I would share this information with you and give a few of the tips that I have for reading a label quickly and easily at the store.
After I read an article about the effects of unnatural sugar on your body, I became interested in the topic. I wondered how much sugar I had in an average day. I was shocked by how much processed and added sugar was in my average diet. I then decided that I would try to reduce this amount and instead gain my sugar intake through natural sources.
Before considering dieting you should evaluate your lifestyle. Ask yourself a set of questions to find out why you think you should be on a diet (How much/little do you eat? What do you eat? When do you eat? Do you workout?…). By first looking at your daily life you can figure out what it is that you want to change and can physically change. For example, if you find yourself snacking tons, find out why. Is it because you didn’t eat enough earlier? Maybe you are just bored?
