How well do you read the ingredient labels on the foods you purchase and do you understand them?
I read the ingredients and the nutritional information carefully. The first thing that I look for is High Fructose Corn Syrup". If it is listed, I stop there and put in back. If I continue reading, I look for the sodium content next, too high, put it back and so on. I have learned to be careful of what goes into my body.
I always read ingredient labels very carefully. I look for food with natural ingredients with few or no preservatives.
