    I thought I understood the nutrition labels but SP's explanation made it simpler and easier to understand!
  • The nutrition facts article was excellent. Best on I have read in a long time. Really explained what I needed to know. Now I know what I'm lookin for in my intake...
  • Great article! I especially will remember to 5% low/20% high rule next time I'm examining labels. Thanks!
  • This article is what makes Spark a different sight. I been wasting my money on all those other sights. I have been asking these questions and never got a straight answer. Thanks
  • Wow really handy percentage tip for reading the labels! Very helpful article.
  • Very informative article. One of my favorites so far! Thank you!
  • Nice rule of thumb, for the 5% and 20% bits.
  • This article was so helpful, this knowledge will definitely help me live a healthier lifestyle :)
  • I loved the article ,good information to use
  • Thank you for putting it straight for me, I was alittle confused. This a a GREAT article.
  • Thank you for this article. I have read labels for years.
    I owned a Children's DayCare and I was the food purchaser. At that time I read the labels mainly for sugar and fat amounts.
    But, now I am reading labels for my hubby and myself. He is even starting to look at them - Amazing.
  • This is definitely a good way to keep a balanced diet, especially if you follow the nutritional label.
  • I NEED YOUR HELP! I found a label that I think is misleading. Please link to my blog on it and if you get confused by the label can you leave a comment, I'm attempting to get the FDA involved in relabeling since Starbuck's wasn't open to listening:

    Thank you.
  • I was taught at an early age to read Nutrition Facts on on packaged food. My biggest problem is estimating nutrition facts on homemade (made by someone else) and restaurant meals.
  • Perhaps the way to go is to choose more and more foods with NO labels - fruits and vegetables. I am working on dumping all of the processed crap out of our lives. Exception: morning cereal or wholegrain waffles and my beloved FIBER ONE bars - I won't give those up! I agree though - labels are WAY too complicated - and SO sneaky with tiny serving sizes! I want to see that movie, FOOD, INC. - has anyone seen that one?
