Nutrition got you confused? Here is some solid advice extracted from an interview
with Bonnie Taub Dix
1. Don’t be fooled by the flashy front of the package — flip the bag or box over to get the real “facts” about what’s in the food you’re spending your money on and putting into your body.
2. Beware of buzz words like “free”, “natural” and “organic”, just to name a few. These terms are not always what they seem. In my book I have a whole chapter on misleading terms because they bug me the most! Bottom line: words like “free” could cost you unnecessary dollars and calories!
3. And of course, most importantly, Read It Before You Eat It (couldn’t help using that line!)
