To support our channel and level up your health, check out: Our Fast Weight Loss Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/the-science-of-fast-weight-loss-course Our Better Health Basics Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/food-health-happiness Today I am going to teach you guys how to read nutrition facts labels. One of the best ways to improve your health quickly is by learning how to read nutrition labels. The first thing you’ll notice at the top of nutrition facts are the serving size and servings per container. This is simply the “amount” in the package or container. Pretty self explanatory... Next you have the ingredients. Everything inside these black lines is representative of ONE serving. This is important to understand because, next you will see the calories and the calories from fat. This is pretty much the only thing most people ever look at and this is a common mistake… If the package says 200 calories on the bag of chips, but the serving per container says 2.5, that means there is actually 500 calories in the bag… This is a clever little marketing trick that you should pay attention to. Pressing on, you will see the total fat on the package along with a number and a percentage on the right hand side. The number represents the total fat in one serving and percentage represents the percentage based on a 2000 calorie diet. So 8 gram is 12% of a 2000 calorie diet. I should also remind you that fat is not bad for you and there are plenty of healthy foods that are high in fat. What you really want to watch out for is any trans fat. Trans fat is the kind linked to heart disease and all sorts of bad stuff. Avoid this at all costs. Saturated fat should be much less of a concern. This may surprise some of you, so I will link a few studies below that have conclusively proven that saturated fat is fine to eat and not the cause of the many diseases it was wrongly accused for. Think of saturated fat as the middle child of the fat family, he’s got a good heart but is just a little misunderstood. Now, you may be thinking, wait a minute… Why does the total number of saturated fat and trans fat not add up to the total fat at the top… Where’s the other 7 grams? Well this is because not all fats will be listed on the nutrition label. Only the nutrients deemed most important ever make it to the nutrition labels. Don’t worry though. The other fats not listed are generally healthy and should be much less of a concern. Pressing on you will see cholesterol and sodium. Remember, these numbers are based on ONE serving. If the sodium was 25% of your daily intake and the package had 2.5 servings in it. That means the entire package contains 63% of you daily sodium intake. Quite a bit considering this is one snack. Onward, you’ll sees the carbohydrate section. Carbohydrates are the breads, grains, fiber and SUGARS in the food. The first section you’ll see is for dietary fiber. Having a good amount of dietary fiber is a good thing as it helps with digestion and satisfaction from meals. Now the next section is what you need to pay attention to. The total sugars in the food you’re eating are important to watch out for as, like the trans fats, these have been linked to a whole host of diseases and health problems. Also you should be aware of not only the sugar in the food, but what kind of carbohydrates you’re eating. If the food is very high in carbohydrates, but low in dietary fiber, even though the carbs are not labeled as “sugar,” they will operate very similarly in the blood stream. These are called “simple carbs.” This is why you need to watch out for unrefined carbohydrates like white bread and pastas. Next up, you’ll see the label for protein. Knowing that foods high in protein lead to better satisfaction from meals, and promote lean muscle tissue, you will want most of the foods you eat to have a good amount of protein. Finally, we have a few key vitamins at the bottom. It may sound strange, but ignore these. The numbers will be notoriously low and you should be focusing instead on getting in lots of fruits and vegetables every day to meet your vitamin requirements. Leafy greens contain calcium and iron, and fruits contain vitamin c and a. The rest of the nutrition labels facts contain recommendations about how much of each category to get in. They do not change on nutrition labels and are not that important. Finally, on some labels you will see the calories per gram for each macronutrient. Fat contains 9 grams per serving and Carbohydrates and Proteins contain 4. So for every 10 grams of fat, you will have 90 calories. For every 10 grams of protein or carbs you will get 40 calories. Safe to say, you should now have a general understanding of how nutrition labels work. Most importantly, you can stop assuming something is healthy for you based on tricky packaging and start KNOWING the difference.

The Truth About Nutrition Labels / 5 Things You Need to Know / Healthy Hacks
 
03:57
The Truth About Nutrition Labels / 5 Things You Need to Know / Healthy Hacks How to read nutrition labels. This may seem pretty simple, but you may be surprised to find out the truth about nutrition labels. Reading nutrition labels will provide you with a better understanding of what’s in the food you’re eating and an understanding of nutrition labels. Consider this video food labels 101 or food labels explained for reading nutrition labels. HEALTHY HACKS VIDEOS SERIES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4CxahzZaOc&list=PLbt1G8SFcfzq6Y_ny9RF68nVV_k49EnKM HYDRATION: https://youtu.be/y4CxahzZaOc BLENDING OR JUICING: https://youtu.be/BVGTeFzrhE4 MEAL PLANNING: https://youtu.be/1d-zArtvYcY HEALTHY SNACK IDEAS: https://youtu.be/VfkGBuvA-1o FREE EBOOK: 10 HACKS TO EATING HEALTHIER: http://vincelia.com/healthyeatinghacks/ Now let’s get into nutrition labels and the 5 things you need to know food labels nutrition information. #1 - Information on the label The first thing we want to discuss is the format and information included on the label. This is nutrition facts label explained. All nutrition labels look pretty much the same. Today, they list the serving size and servings per container at the top, followed by all the nutritional information, such as calories, fat, cholesterol, etc. The ingredients used are listed in order of greatest to least by weight. There are eight common food allergies that are required to be listed if contained in the product’s ingredients: milk, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts and soybeans. #2 - What to look for Ideally, none of the food we eat would even have a food label since it will all be real food. Unfortunately, that’s not possible for most of us, so what we want to do is focus on ingredients that we can pronounce. My rule of thumb is that, if I don’t know what a bunch of the ingredients or they are or they look like a bunch of chemicals, I avoid it. This is great of you're learning how to read nutrition labels for weight loss. Try to find products with the least amount of ingredients and contain ingredients that you can recognize. When foods, even healthy foods, are processed and placed in products for us to purchase and eat, the nutritional value of these healthy ingredients goes down. Try to find products with minimally processed ingredients. #3 - Focus on the back of the packaging, not the front. The front of the packaging is full of marketing. You’ll see words like “healthy” and “all natural” with lots of vegetables and colors to make something appear to be what it isn’t. You may think it is healthy and full of fruits and veggies. Don’t be fooled and flip that container around and find out what’s really inside of what you are eating. Also check the daily percentage of vitamins. If you know that a certain amount of vegetables, such as carrots, are high in vitamin A, check the daily percentage on the nutrition label. If the percentage is really low, there probably aren’t as many carrots in that item. #4 - Watch out for fat free I mentioned that earlier that not all fats are bad, but a lot of companies will use the marketing words such as “no fat” or “fat free” on the their products to entice people to purchase it. They will even list the fat content as zero on the nutrition label. When you see this go straight to the ingredients. To make up for the fat, they will often add other unhealthy ingredients or increase the sugar content. And speaking of sugar, that lead us to item #5. #5 - Sugar in disguise Companies want to avoid listing sugar as an ingredient, so this often cleverly disguised as something else. This is especially important when figuring out how to read nutrition labels for diabetics. If you see a label with an ingredient ending in -ose, it’s probably sugar and should be avoided. For example, fructose, sucrose, glucose, etc. Look for items that are sweetened with healthier alternatives. Bonus Tip How to read nutrition labels serving size. Check the serving size in each item and remember that the nutritional information and daily percentages are per serving. For example, the amount of fat or salt in can of soup may not seem that bad, but if that one can of soup has 2 servings, all those amounts need to be doubled.

How To Read Food Labels on the Saturday Morning Diet
 
06:46
Click Here!! http://www.saturdaydiet.com for eCourses How To Read Food Labels on the Saturday Morning Diet Why Knowing What They Tell You Is Important FDA The Food and Drug Administration standardized nutritional information to consumers on January 6, 1993. The law now requires that the number of calories, total fat and amount of saturated fat in each serving. Labels must also include vitamins and minerals, total carbohydrates, sodium, cholesterol,fiber and proteins. Labeling forced food processors to reduce the amount of Trans Fats in their products. Serving Size Nutrition facts on the label are based on a single serving of standardized amounts, that helps you compare similar foods. It is important to watch the servings per container to make a accurate evaluation. Amount Of Calories It is critical that you remember that the label reads "calories PER serving". A product may read 240 calories but if there are 4 servings in the product, it means that you will consume 960. This is where weight control comes into play, you must balance how many calories you eat verses how many calories your body uses. Dietary FAT! The FDA advises that eating too much fat, trans fat, saturated fat, sodium or cholesterol may increase your risk of chronic diseases. Be especially aware of the fats on the label, to prevent weight gain. Fiber Dietary Fiber is important to help reduce the risks of several conditions and diseases. Fiber will keep you regular and reduce blood sugar spikes in your diet. Sugars It is important to know what types of sugar you are eating. Different sugars found in food are easier on the the digestive system than others. High Fructose Corn Syrup- research reports that HFCS can significantly cause weight gain. It also means that the food it is found in is also highly processed. Percent Daily Value This is a quick point of reference for the amount of nutrients provided by a single serving. Footnote with Daily Values (DV) PERCENT DAILY VALUES ARE BASED ON A 2,000 CALORIE DIET. YOUR DAILY VALUES MAY BE HIGHER OR LOWER DEPENDING ON YOUR CALORIE NEEDS. Obesity doesn't have to be a problem in your life anymore. If you make an honest effort to eliminate bad habits, eat right and exercise regularly.

Food Labels - Nutrition Labels - How To Read Food Labels
 
03:44
In this video I discuss how to read food labels and what all of the sections of the label are telling you. Food labels can be tricky, so it is important to understand what these labels are actually telling you. The Nutrition Facts Label can be broken into 5 parts; 1) serving size, 2) calories, 3) amount of nutrients, 4) Percent daily value and 5) the footnote portion. Serving Size The serving size section tells what 1 serving size actually is, and the total amount of servings in the container. Serving sizes are usually standardized to make it easy to compare similar foods. For instance here are 2 food labels for organic soups, black bean vegetable on the left, chunky vegetable on the right. You can see both list a serving size as 1 cup or 245 grams. Calories Next is the calories section. Calories are a measurement of energy from food for your body. Here we have the nutrition label for Lucky Charms cereal. Most people grab a bowl, and fill it up near the top, then add in milk paying no attention to serving size. But, 1 serving size is actually ¾ of a cup of the cereal and ½ cup of non fat milk. According to the serving size section, this would provide 150 total calories, 110 calories from the cereal and 40 calories from the milk. The full bowl of cereal and milk totaled 448 calories. So, 150 calories vs 448 calories, quite a difference. Amount of nutrients The next section lists the amount of nutrients in a serving size. Here you will see the macronutrients, Fats, carbohydrates and protein. Macronutrients are what provide calories, or energy for your body. Other items listed usually include cholesterol and sodium, and typically under the carbohydrates section the amount of fiber and sugar are listed. Cholesterol, sodium and sugar are listed because many people over consume these items, and fiber is listed because most people are deficient in it. The percentages on the right tell you the percentage of the recommended amount of each item, in a serving size. These percentages are based on a person consuming a 2000 calorie diet per day. For instance, the black bean vegetable soup provides 5g of fiber, at 20%. This means that 1 serving of the soup provides 20% of the recommended amount of fiber most people need per day. Keep in mind that every persons nutrient needs are different. Percent daily value of micronutrients Percent of daily value is the next section. This section tells you the percentage of micronutrients, vitamins and minerals, in a serving size of the food item. Again, These percentages are based on a person consuming a 2000 calorie diet per day. If we look at the lucky charms label, we see the cereal provides 10% of the recommend daily value of calcium, with the milk that increases to 25%. So, one serving size of the cereal with the milk will provide 25% of the recommended amount of calcium most people need per day. Again, Keep in mind that every persons nutrient needs are different. Footnote The last part of a food label is the footnote section. Percent daily values are based on 2000 calorie diet. This statement appears on all food labels, as you can see on this cracker label and on this yogurt label. The remaining portion you see on the yogurt label will appear if the size of the label is large enough. The recommended daily values are listed for several nutrients, and are based on public health experts’ advice. They are listed for 2000 and 2500 calorie diets. The recommended daily values change for the energy nutrients, but stay the same for cholesterol, sodium and potassium. You can also see that the recommendations for total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium are listed as less than, meaning that these are maximum intake recommendations. I will say this for a 3rd time, only because it is extremely important, every persons nutrient needs are different, an athlete, a runner, or someone that leads a very sedentary lifestyle. All of these people will have different nutrient needs. And that be the basics on food labels.

Helpful Hints for Reading Food Labels
 
01:38
Common Mistakes in Reading Food Labels - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Today, I am going to talk about a couple of mistakes that people make when they're reading food labels. One is not reading the ingredients list. If you are buying something in box or a can or a package, it will have the ingredients list on it and it is very important that you see, actually, what is in the product. You may think its whole wheat but, it is not really whole wheat. It is just caramel coloring that is making it look dark like whole wheat so, read the label and see what the actual ingredients are. Along with that, another thing to look for when you are reading the label is check out the amount of trans fats that is in the nutrition facts section. It is a little chart and it will label how much trans fats are in there. If a product says no trans fats and it says zero grams trans fats, do not be 100% sure that it has no trans fats. If you, again, read the ingredient list, if it says partially hydrogenated oil, that means there is trans fats in there, even though the label says it does not have any and the reason this can be this way is because if the serving has under a half a gram of trans fats in it, they can put it as zero.

How to Follow a Healthy Diet by Reading Nutrition Labels
 
02:10
Watch more Healthy Eating videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/169320-How-to-Follow-a-Healthy-Diet-by-Reading-Nutrition-Labels Trying to eat healthy but confused about what to avoid? Nutrition labels can help you make smart food choices. Step 1: Look at serving size Look at the serving size; all numbers on a nutrition label refer to a single serving. You might discover that what you consider a light snack is actually meant to feed four! Tip Keep in mind that the calories per serving generally don't include additional ingredients you may need to prepare the item. Step 2: Weigh the calories Look at the line marked "calories." Limit foods whose "calories from fat" make up more than a third of the total. Step 3: Chew over the fat Check out the "Total Fat" section. It tells you the number of fat grams in a serving, plus the breakdown of the kinds of fat. Avoid foods that contain trans fats and whose "percent daily value" of saturated fats is higher than 20 percent. Tip Percent daily value is based on a daily intake of 2,000 calories. Growing teenagers and athletes often consume more, while women and older people sometimes consume less. Step 4: Check your cholesterol Check the cholesterol number. Steer clear of a 'percent daily value' higher than 20. Step 5: Watch your sodium Take stock of the sodium number. The average American ingests 3,500 milligrams of sodium per day – 1,100 more than the recommended limit, putting them at risk of developing high blood pressure. And 75 percent of that sodium comes from processed foods. Tip Foods labeled "healthy" cannot exceed 360 milligrams of sodium per serving. Step 6: Don't sugarcoat it Look at the sugar content. Aim for foods that have less than 5 grams of sugar per serving. Step 7: Scan the ingredients list Scan the list of ingredients. Foods are listed in order of quantity, so those first couple of items should be basic staples and whole foods. Look for a short list, not a laundry list of chemicals you can neither identify nor pronounce, which indicates a highly processed food. Step 8: Look for the good stuff Look for the good stuff – at least two grams of fiber per serving and respectable percentages (20 percent or more) of vitamins and minerals. Did You Know? The word "enriched" can be deceiving; it indicates a food that lost many of its original nutrients from being processed.

🍐 Most Powerful Fruit Lowers Your Cholesterol In Only 7 Days -  Clinically Proven!
 
03:55
Discover the REAL cause of high cholesterol and a simple formula my parent’s have used since 1999 to lower their cholesterol naturally: 👉 http://drsam.co/yt/CholesterolSecret Or you can watch this video: http://drsam.co/yt/WorstFoodsForCholesterol References: 1. https://www.avocadocentral.com/nutrition/avocado-nutrition-health-facts-label 2. Arch. med. Res. 1996:27(4);519-523 3. Journal of the American Heart Association 2015; 4:e001355 4. http://www.naturalnews.com/029202_olive_oil_smoke_point.html ======================================= 🍐 Avocado - The Most Powerful Fruit To Lower Your Cholesterol In Only 7 Days - Clinically Proven! ======================================= Now if you’ve been following my work, watching my videos or reading my articles, you’d know that I’m not a big fan of fruit because of the sugar content. This is because the fructose sugar in fruits, can actually increase your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, while also increasing your risk for diabetes. All bad for your heart. Anyway, if fruit isn’t really that good for your health - then why am I promoting “fruit” in today’s topic? Well, the fruit I’m referring to is an Avocado! Now, most people call it a vegetable because it’s green. However, the avocado is technically a fruit, and even more specifically, a single-seeded berry. Personally, I categorize an avocado under FATS because one medium size avocado (150 grams) has about1: 240 calories 12 calories (3 grams) from protein 12 calories (3 grams + 9 grams fiber) from carbohydrates 216 of calories (24 grams) being from fat (90% of the calories) Now, the TYPE of fat is the key to avocado’s “cholesterol lowering” secret and I’ll get to that in a minute. As far as clinical proof for improving your cholesterol… One study2 saw a 16% decrease in total cholesterol after only 7 days of a diet high in monounsaturated fat from avocados and a 22% decrease of both the “bad” LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides, along with an 11% increase the “good” HDL cholesterol. In a second study3, the participants saw an average drop of 14 points in “bad” LDL cholesterol with a higher avocado diet The “Secret” Heart-Healthy Fat Now, the reason for avocado’s working so well is that 66% of the fat is from monounsaturated fats!1 Most people like olive oil as the main source of monounsaturated fats. However, I don’t because most olive oil is rancid and processed. It’s “fake”. Most of the healthier, “extra virgin oils” break down at a lower heat temperature and thus, it’s best kept UNCOOKED and eaten raw. My favorite monounsaturated fat to cook with is macadamia oil because it’s not processed very much and also has a high heat capacity, so it’s great for cooking.4 Summary So if you want a healthier heart and lower your cholesterol, decrease your sugars and increase healthy monounsaturated fats from my favorite heart-healthy fruit, an avocado! ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

Quick Guide to Food Labels
 
02:08
How often do you look at food labels? Food labels show you exactly what you’ll be adding to your health. If haven’t been vigilant in reading the labels, now is the time to take your health into your own hands. http://ghc.us/1uu Do you know what you’re putting into your body? With so many hidden ingredients in packaged goods, it can be hard to make conscious, healthy choices. Taking the time to read food labels can help you stick to your diet by helping you track how much you’re consuming of certain nutrients. Here are some tips for breaking down food labels. Who’s Counting?   How many calories should you be eating each day? While it varies from person to person, on average women should aim for 2000 a day, and men should plan for about 2500 a day. Be sure to eat foods that are low in calories but high in nutritional value. Chew the Fat Pop Quiz! Which are good for you – unsaturated, saturated, or trans fats? Unsaturated fats, vegetables, nuts, and seeds, can be good for your cardiovascular health and cholesterol. Saturated and trans fats, found in baked goods, meat, and dairy products, can be artery-clogging and can increase your risk for heart disease. Craving Carbs? Not all carbs are created equal. Food labels identify fibers and sugars within the total carb count. A good rule of thumb? More fiber, less sugar. New and improved food labels are coming soon that will further identify added sugars in foods. Take your Vitamins   Vitamins and minerals are like superheroes fighting for our health, helping our bodies function optimally and efficiently, and tackling anything that might get in the way. Food labels identify a few key nutrients, like iron and calcium, to help us ensure we’re getting enough of them. The new food labels will replace Vitamins A and C with Vitamin D and potassium, seeing that research shows on average, Americans are not consuming enough of those nutrients.

Sports Nutrition - Food Labels
 
02:40
For more details about sports nutrition, training and motivation, visit http://visportsnutrition.ca Sports nutrition requires a careful look at what is in food. To do this at the grocery store, read the Food Labels and know the terms used. Here are a few important things to keep in mind when reading a nutrition label: FAT FREE -- means a product has less than 0.5 grams of fat per serving LOW FAT -- means a product has less than 3 grams of fat per serving REDUCED FAT -- a product has at least 25% less fat per serving than the full-fat version LEAN (meats) -- ¬less than 10 grams of fat per serving with less than 4.5 grams of saturated fat EXTRA LEAN (meats) -- less than 5 grams of fat per serving with less than 2 grams of saturated fat LIGHT -- a product has 1/3 fewer calories or 50% less fat per serving than non-light version --50% less sodium -- the food is clearer in color HEALTHY -- low in fat and saturated fat and limited amounts of sodium and cholesterol LESS -- 25% less of a nutrient or calories CALORIE FREE -- a product has less than 5 calories per serving LOW CALORIE -- a product has less than 40 calories per serving REDUCED -- a product has 25% fewer calories, sodium or sugar per serving than the non-reduced version SUGAR-FREE or NO ADDED SUGAR -- this doesn't tell you anything about sugar substitutes or sugar derivatives which can have just as many calories as regular sugar! ORGANICALLY GROWN, ORGANIC, or NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS -- no chemicals used in their production but only trust labels that say "certified organically grown" CHOLESTEROL FREE -- less than 2 milligrams of cholesterol and 2 grams of saturated fat per serving HIGH FIBER -- contains at least 5 grams of fiber per serving GOOD SOURCE OF FIBER -- contains 2.5 -- 4.9 grams of fiber per serving Pay attention to the ingredients in products. The ingredients list is where you find hidden fats, sodium, sugar, and artificial flavors. Keep in mind that the first ingredient will be the largest in quantity, the second ingredient will be the second most, and so on. A good rule of thumb I like to follow: if an item is packed with ingredients that I can't pronounce, leave it on the shelf. Sticking with products made from whole foods that have little to no preservatives is always a healthier choice for sports nutrition.

How to Read Nutrition Labels for Healthier Food Choices (Healthytarian Minutes ep. 32)

Healthytarian Minutes with holistic teacher Evita Ochel (http://www.evitaochel.com). This episode teaches you how to read and understand nutrition facts labels to make the best food choices. If you would like a detailed explanation of food and nutrition labels, take Evita's online video class or course: - 1 hour "How to Read Nutrition Labels" class: https://www.learnitlive.com/invite/class/2879/How-to-Read-and-Understand-Nutrition-Labels - 2.5 hour "Get to Know Your Food" course (get 50% off with this coupon link: https://www.udemy.com/get-to-know-your-food/?couponCode=GETHALFOFF) Video Transcript: Reading a nutrition label can help you choose healthier food options. Start by checking the serving size to estimate how much of this food you would normally eat. Serving sizes can vary widely among different types of foods. You will need to multiply all your numbers of interest by as many servings as you would consume of this food. Check the calories per serving. Assuming 3 meals and 2 snacks in a day, generally, a meal should be around 400 to 600 calories and a snack around 100 to 300 calories. Check the fat values. Calories from fat should be less than a third, the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol should be minimal or zero, and trans fat should always be zero. Check the sodium. Your sodium number should be equal to or less than your calorie number per serving. Check the carbohydrate area. You want to see a high fiber amount and low sugar amount. The protein value is not a significant area for consideration, for most people. And the higher the vitamin and mineral amounts in your food, the better. Ultimately, the most important piece of information about your food is the ingredient list. Refer to this as much as possible, as it will give you the most information about the quality, health and nutritional value of your food. Choose foods made of whole, real food ingredients, not modified, refined, synthetic or artificial ones.

How to Read Nutrition Facts | Food Labels Made Easy
 
05:29
The Science of Fast Weight Loss eCourse: http://courses.thehealthnerds.com/ Today I am going to teach you guys how to read nutrition facts labels. One of the best ways to improve your health quickly is by learning how to read nutrition labels. You may think these labels contain some complex science and mathematical equations, but they are really not that scary. Let’s walk through how to properly read these things. The first thing you’ll notice at the top of nutrition facts are the serving size and servings per container. This is simply the “amount” in the package or container. Pretty self explanatory... Next you have the ingredients. Everything inside these black lines is representative of ONE serving. This is important to understand because, next you will see the calories and the calories from fat. This is pretty much the only thing most people ever look at and this is a common mistake… If the package says 200 calories on the bag of chips, but the serving per container says 2.5, that means there is actually 500 calories in the bag… This is a clever little marketing trick that you should pay attention to. Pressing on, you will see the total fat on the package along with a number and a percentage on the right hand side. The number represents the total fat in one serving and percentage represents the percentage based on a 2000 calorie diet. So 8 gram is 12% of a 2000 calorie diet. I should also remind you that fat is not bad for you and there are plenty of healthy foods that are high in fat. What you really want to watch out for is any trans fat. Trans fat is the kind linked to heart disease and all sorts of bad stuff. Avoid this at all costs. Saturated fat should be much less of a concern. This may surprise some of you, so I will link a few studies below that have conclusively proven that saturated fat is fine to eat and not the cause of the many diseases it was wrongly accused for. Think of saturated fat as the middle child of the fat family, he’s got a good heart but is just a little misunderstood. Now, you may be thinking, wait a minute… Why does the total number of saturated fat and trans fat not add up to the total fat at the top… Where’s the other 7 grams? Well this is because not all fats will be listed on the nutrition label. Only the nutrients deemed most important ever make it to the nutrition labels. Don’t worry though. The other fats not listed are generally healthy and should be much less of a concern. Pressing on you will see cholesterol and sodium. Remember, these numbers are based on ONE serving. If the sodium was 25% of your daily intake and the package had 2.5 servings in it. That means the entire package contains 63% of you daily sodium intake. Quite a bit considering this is one snack. Onward, you’ll sees the carbohydrate section. Carbohydrates are the breads, grains, fiber and SUGARS in the food. The first section you’ll see is for dietary fiber. Having a good amount of dietary fiber is a good thing as it helps with digestion and satisfaction from meals. Now the next section is what you need to pay attention to. The total sugars in the food you’re eating are important to watch out for as, like the trans fats, these have been linked to a whole host of diseases and health problems. Also you should be aware of not only the sugar in the food, but what kind of carbohydrates you’re eating. If the food is very high in carbohydrates, but low in dietary fiber, even though the carbs are not labeled as “sugar,” they will operate very similarly in the blood stream. These are called “simple carbs.” This is why you need to watch out for unrefined carbohydrates like white bread and pastas. Next up, you’ll see the label for protein. Knowing that foods high in protein lead to better satisfaction from meals, and promote lean muscle tissue, you will want most of the foods you eat to have a good amount of protein. Finally, we have a few key vitamins at the bottom. It may sound strange, but ignore these. The numbers will be notoriously low and you should be focusing instead on getting in lots of fruits and vegetables every day to meet your vitamin requirements. Leafy greens contain calcium and iron, and fruits contain vitamin c and a. The rest of the nutrition labels facts contain recommendations about how much of each category to get in. They do not change on nutrition labels and are not that important. Finally, on some labels you will see the calories per gram for each macronutrient. Fat contains 9 grams per serving and Carbohydrates and Proteins contain 4. So for every 10 grams of fat, you will have 90 calories. For every 10 grams of protein or carbs you will get 40 calories. Safe to say, you should now have a general understanding of how nutrition labels work. Most importantly, you can stop assuming something is healthy for you based on tricky packaging and start KNOWING the difference.

how to read nutrition labels HINDI

What is a Nutrition Facts Label? The Nutrition Facts Label helps you determine the amount of calories and nutrients in one serving of food. Nutrients include fats, carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, and minerals. This information helps you know whether you’re eating a healthy, balanced diet. The label, which is included on every packaged food product, lists the amount of: Fat Total fat Saturated fat Trans fat Cholesterol Sodium Total carbohydrate Dietary fiber Sugars Protein Vitamins and minerals What is a serving size? Serving size is the first piece of information listed on the label. A serving size is the amount of food that is typically eaten in one serving. It is listed as a general household measurement, such as pieces, cups or ounces (for example, 7 potato chips or 1/2 cup of cereal). Serving size is an important part of a healthy diet. Eating very large servings (or portions) can contribute to weight gain because as you eat larger portions, you eat more calories. It’s important to compare the serving size listed on the container to the amount of that food that you normally eat. For example, the label may list a serving size as 7 potato chips or 1 ounce of cake. If you usually eat twice that amount, you are also eating twice the amount of calories and nutrients. What is the Percent Daily Value? A healthy person should consume a certain amount of fats, carbohydrates (especially fiber), protein, and vitamins and minerals each day. Certain ingredients, such as saturated fats and trans fats, are considered unhealthy and should only be eaten in very small amounts. The nutrition label provides a list of percentages (called the Percent Daily Value) that compares how much of a certain nutrient one serving of food contains to how much of that nutrient you should consume daily. One serving of food with 5% or less of the daily value is considered low. One serving of a food with 20% or more of the daily value is considered high. The Percent Daily Value is based on a daily diet of 2,000 calories. You will need to adjust the percentages if you eat more or less than 2,000 calories per day. For more information on calorie allowances, read our handout on determining calorie needs. What ingredients should I limit in my diet? Saturated fat. Saturated fat can increase your risk of heart disease and high cholesterol. The average adult should consume no more than 20 grams of saturated fat per day. Trans fat. Trans fat also increases your risk of heart disease. Ideally, you should get 0 grams of trans fat per day. When you read a nutrition label remember that companies are allowed to list the amount of trans fat as “0 grams” if it contains less than .5 grams of trans fat per serving. This means that your food can contain some trans fat even if the nutrition label says “0 grams” per serving! Always check the ingredient list for trans fat, which may be listed as “hydrogenated vegetable oil” or “partially hydrogenated vegetable oil.” Trans fat is usually found in commercially prepared baked goods, fried foods, snack foods and margarine. Cholesterol. You should eat less than 300 milligrams of cholesterol per day (and less than 200 milligrams per day if you have heart disease). For more information see Cholesterol. What ingredients should I get more of in my diet? Fiber. Fiber helps your body digest the food you eat, and it can help lower your risk of diabetes and heart disease. A food is considered high in fiber if it contains 5 grams of fiber or more per serving. Men 50 years of age and younger should get at least 38 grams of fiber per day, while women 50 years of age and younger should consume at least 25 grams of fiber per day. Fiber is found in foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Look for the words “whole grain” on the package and ingredient list. Vitamins and Minerals. The nutrition label lists vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron. You should try to get more of these nutrients in your daily diet, as well as other vitamins and minerals that are not listed on the label. our other link: What Happens When You Drink Water On An Empty Stomach - https://youtu.be/WhDYd_aZTO0 guru mann biography- https://youtu.be/D4qCmm-Ul8Y what is whey protein - https://youtu.be/fl8x2izT5wk gym tips for beginner in hindi - https://youtu.be/wPelKTiNPDQ how to get abs hindi - https://youtu.be/rdVy1DvS7BY

The numbers on the food labels help you make decisions about the amount of intake. The list of nutrients includes total fat, trans fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, total carbohydrate, dietary fiber, sugars, and protein. These nutrients are important to our health.

How to Read Food Labels
 
02:26
http://www.ReneEndara.com How to Read Food Labels Today, I'm going to give you a quick tip: how to read food labels. This has been the most confusing thing that there is to know about nutrition. The reason why is because the FDA has allowed the food companies to play with the numbers. Here's a food label – Nutrition Facts. You'll see that and everybody reads this part. It's the little white boxed out area and it gives you the percentages of what this has, what that has; fats, cholesterol, so on and so forth. Unfortunately, the reason why that's so incorrect, so misleading is because they base it on a serving. So, the serving could be one tablespoon, it could be eight ounces. Because we don't pay attention to the serving size, the numbers that show up in the nutrition facts can be changed because, obviously, the more you have, the higher the other number, the nutritional facts, will be. And the lesser, the smaller the serving, the smaller the nutritional facts would be. Obviously, if you have sugar in there, you would want that to be at your lowest – to read at your lowest, at least. But, this is where the tip is. Always ignore that. Look at where it says ‘ingredients' right at the bottom. When you see that, you start reading. And the first thing that it has is the highest thing it has. The second thing it has, the second thing on the list, would be the second highest thing it has. And that's how simple it is. That's the tip of the day. Don't ignore the nutritional facts and only look at the ingredients. So, whatever is in the ingredients, that's what you have most of. From the top to the bottom, is where the highest contents of it, and so on and so forth in descending fashion. You will have less of whatever else is in here based on where it falls on that list. So, keep yourself alert. It's misinformation. The ingredients is a solid piece of information. They will tell you exactly what's in here.

Food Labels-Reading Between the Lines
 
02:10
Fresh out of college Gavin Perko is ready to graduate to a better diet. “Just to eat healthier, instead of eating fast food all the time. Grocery shopping now that I’m older,” says Perko. He pays more attention to packages; picking items like popcorn chips over salty snack counterparts. Like many of us, Gavin is swayed by health claims. “All the naturals, the organic, fat-free, low sugar. Those things kind of catch my eye,” says Perko. “People have a tendency to read the front of the package, which is all marketing, and forget to turn over and actually look at what’s mandated by the Food & Drug Administration, which is the nutrition facts label,” says Jeanne Struve. She is a registered dietitian with Lee Memorial Health System, who is wise to the work that goes into labeling. “Trying to figure out what makes a consumer buy something. When you can tag it ‘no cholesterol’ or ‘no fat’ or ‘no sugar’ those are things that people go ‘oh well, it must be healthy,’” says Struve. They are called health buzz words and studies show they work. People purchase on the perception of wholesome qualities. It boils down to buyer beware. To increase your food smarts, we have tips to help you read between the lines. A common practice is to hide sugars on the nutrition label, by breaking it into several ingredients. “Look for the high fructose corn syrup or the dextrose or the sucrose. They can call it syrup; they can call it brown sugar. What the food manufacturers will do, is put in so much sugar, but they put it in in different names so that they can stagger it throughout the ingredients so it doesn’t show up as the number one ingredient.” Manufacturers may count on confusing shoppers who aren’t prepared to do math in the grocery isle. “Every 4 grams of sugar equals 1 tsp. of sugar,” Struve demonstrates with a bowl of cereal. “So for example, this product has 17 grams of sugar that would be the equivalent of 4 tsps.” Lastly, don’t be fooled by the color of your bread. “Manufacturers a lot of times just add some caramel coloring, make it brown, and people assume that it’s a whole grain. Look for the number: 100% whole wheat, 100% whole grain. Tasty tidbits to increase your food IQ. “When I see all natural or low fat, i would assume that they would be healthier for you,” says Perko.

Make smart eating decisions quickly and easily by knowing how to read nutrition labels. Related Links: Health on the Menu | HealthiNation http://youtu.be/Gade8lFgbZ8 Healthy Eating 101 | HealthiNation http://youtu.be/YUDOapUTRec If you want to make smart eating decisions quickly and easily, make sure you take time to read nutrition labels. - Check portions. Some packages or bottled drinks that seem like single servings really contain two or more. That's at least double the calories and double the other things like added salt or sugar. - Look at the list of ingredients. The higher the ingredient is on the list, the more of it is in your food. - So, if you're looking to cut down on sugar, skip products with sugar as one of the first three ingredients. - Remember that sugar could be "hiding" in that list. Sucrose, corn syrup, glucose.....These are all sugar. - If you're looking to "up" your fiber intake, look for "wholegrain" or "whole wheat" near the top of the ingredient list. And you should know that "multigrain" on the label may not mean the grains are "whole"; it could just mean there are a whole lot of processed grains. You want them "whole". - Beware of packaged foods labeled "Zero trans fat". They can contain up to a half gram of this artery-clogging fat per serving and still be labeled "no trans fat"! Just a few servings can add up! Avoid foods with these ingredients on the nutrition label: "hydrogenated," "partially hydrogenated" or "shortening". It's trans fat any way you write it. Keep these simple tips in mind and you'll find making healthy choices a whole lot easier. Didn't Include due to time constraints: Some fats are actually good for you -- I'm talking about unsaturated fats like the heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids found in oily fish and some oils like olive oil. Saturated fats are another story completely. Those are the kinds found in red meats and full fat dairy products. Our bodies make all the saturated fat we need so try to stay away from adding any of this bad kind of fat to your diet.
