Double check your labels!

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

I was a little upset earlier this evening when I was putting my whey protein container back in the pantry. The nutrition label caught my eye and I had to do a double-take. I picked the container back up and headed straight to my computer, logged on to Spark and checked my daily entries.

Sure enough, the calories and nutritional profile do NOT match what I have been logging.

Given my daily servings, I have been consuming 190 calories MORE each day than I thought. What's worse, that includes almost 14g MORE fat! Every day, for the past ten days.

I will be picking up a different product tomorrow. My husband/kids will finish the current one.

Double check your labels match what you're entering!

    OMG, LOL...terrible, but funny. good thing is that you were getting some extra protein and calories in there for muscle food at least!

    Yikes! What kind were you using? Anything that I use on a regular basis, I put in the info myself. Good reminder to double check!
