Nutrition labels can cause a lot of confusion for some people so I'm going through some important points that I think everyone should take into account. This is the black and white box that's somewhere on a food package, and separate from the ingredients list which I'll discuss another time. What you choose to focus on when looking at the Nutrition Facts will depend on your lifestyle, needs, and goals.

Some of the things I talk about in this episode: • What I personally look for on Nutrition Facts • Why I'm careful to not demonize entire groups of foods, unlike other professionals • How to think about serving sizes shown on food packaging • The lies that food manufacturers are legally allowed to tell • Macronutrients and micronutrients • Why "high protein" claims are somewhat irrelevant • Sodium intake • Recommended Daily Allowances (RDA) on the new and old Nutrition Facts • Sugar precautions

You can view the side-by-side comparison of the old Nutrition Facts label vs. the new one required by January 1, 2020.
