Even on my non-cheat days I learned to research the nutritional facts about fast foods before going to the restaurants so I would be able to keep track of my calories do I didn’t ruin my day.

Generally speaking, the nutrition analysis taught me the range I should be in for my intake of calories, calories from fat, total fat, and other fats. To be honest, I never bothered looking up my recommended intakes of these nutrients. The nutrition analysis also taught me the parts of my diet that need adjusting.
Understanding Food Labels Jacqueline Medina SCI/241 Lorraine Kochanowski-Sutter, DC, MSACN After reviewing “The Food Label and You” video from the link provided on my student page I was able to gain important information on understanding food labels. In the video the 5/20 rule was discussed. This rule now helps me decide on the right foods to eat on a daily basis. This rule implies that if the label says it has 5% or less of the daily value of a nutrient, then it is not a good source. If the label says it has a daily value of 20% or more, then it is an excellent source.

The Necessity of Nutrition and Ingredient Labeling Whenever I go to the store I always like to buy items that have detailed nutrition labels and list all of the ingredients that are in the product, because I just want to know all that I am putting in my body. The first thing that comes to my mind thinking about what’s in the food that we all eat today is “you are what you eat”, because to maintain a healthy body I think every person should be more cautious on what they consume and that the food items have nutrition labels on them. I believe it is important for all food items that are sold to consumers to come with a detailed and standardized nutritional label so that the consumer is better aware of what they are getting and that the consumer can avoid allergic reactions due to a certain ingredient in the product. I would like to start off by stating that it is important for all food products to have a nutrition label in order for the consumer to be better aware of what they are purchasing. A food company would argue that it is too complex and meaning less to put nutrition labels on all of the small packs of food that are in the value boxes.
