It seems that way some times, but really? It's all about perspective. The more you do it, the easier it gets. I don't even really have to think about checking labels anymore; I just do it, and I know what to look for. I'm unswayed by weaselly marketing terms, and I'm learning where the smart choices are.
One thing that helps? Avoid things that have labels! If you're eating fresh fruits, veggies, and meat, well, there's no need to check the label!
You start to learn pretty quickly what's worth it. One of my all-time favorites is Kraft MAcaroni and Cheese, sharp cheddar. the kind with the pouch of cheese, not the powder. But the calorie wallop, added to the sodium wallop, and the fact that I'm hungry an hour later? Means that it's just not worth it anymore. So I only rarely get it. I still like to indulge now and again, but honestly? It's not a 2 times a week thing anymore.
