Using Food Labels to Help You Lose Weight: Expert Q&A

There’s a lot to look for. Do you find that dieters get frustrated and stop trying to figure out labels?

No. At the beginning, it’s true, you do have to spend a little time reading labels and comparing products. But once you’ve chosen the one that looks healthiest to you -- with the lowest calories and the most nutrition -- you don’t have to go through the process every time you can shop. You can just reach for the product you’ve given your own seal of approval to. Of course it’s worth comparing labels now and then to make sure products haven’t changed.
