Nutrition Info Labels

… only 74 days until the book release!



Being able to decode nutrition labels is important so that you’ll be able to maximize healthy nutrients while minimizing certain undesirable nutrients.

Let’s start with the nutrients we want to minimize; these include cholesterol, total fat and sodium.  Generally, you’ll want to keep your cholesterol intake lower than 300mg each day.  You’ll also want to remember that not all fats are bad for you, so you need to look at how much of the total fat is saturated fat versus how much is trans fat.  Lastly, you typically want to have less than 2000mg of sodium per day.  Be sure to keep this in mind when grabbing canned soups or frozen meals.

Understanding the nutrition label will also help you to be able to maximize good nutrients, such as dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals.  You should always be looking to get as much of these out of your meals as possible.  To help you estimate this, you can look to the daily value or DV% on the label.   This will tell you how much each serving of this food will contribute to your daily goal.
