Read the Labels

Eating foods without reading the labels is much like driving to an unknown destination without a map. Understanding what is in your food will help you make better decisions for your diet. Aside from recommended serving sizes and calorie count, there are a number of nutritional information factors to consider, especially when accounting for your body's specific needs.

While dining out doesn't always provide easily accessible label information, reading up on dishes before heading out, understanding menu lingo (for example, "creamy" means "fattening"), or asking if you're not sure, is possible. Knowing the breakdown of labels will help you choose foods that are right for you.
