We're back for more discussion about understanding a nutrition label! In part two of this two part series I am diving into assessing the macronutrients for your goals. All those numbers on the back of the package? Yeah, we're breaking it down!
I encourage you to check out Part 1 of this How to Read a Nutrition Label series before tuning into this episode. I mention in that episode that I've created a 3 step system to determine if something should hop into your grocery cart. Steps 1 + 2 are discussed in Part 1 of this series and today we're talking about how the macros measure up.
Step 1: Consider how frequently you are eating the food (and if you should even bother checking the label)
Step 2: Investigate the ingredients
Step 3: Make sure the macros measure up
We're breaking down all of the following elements:
Fat - including saturated fat + trans fat
Carbohydrates - including dietary fiber, total sugar + added sugar
