But this today I’ll be sharing them with you.
1. Read the labels. most people never pay attention to the food labels and wonder why their weight never changes or are constantly feeling flat. So start to pay attention to the food labels and what’s actually in the food you are eating.
2. Look at the serving description. All labels should say the amount per 100g or per typical serving. This will help you understand what you are consuming per serving.
3. The Majors. The major ingredients that you should paying attention to are Fats (some of which are saturated AND ARE GOOD) Carbohydrates, Fibre and Protein. I’ll explain more about the breakdown of these next time.
4.Look at the RDA. Recommended daily allowance. This is there to remind you of what your typical daily intake of the certain macronutrients should be. Use this as a guide but remember your best source of vitamin and minerals is from fresh fruit and veg.
Ok, read through those again and begin to get familiar with the different sections of food label reading.
