    The 5% / 20% thing is a HUGE help... I always ignored those percentages because, on a daily calorie range far below 2000, I didn't what to do with them! Thanks for the tip! - 3/3/2009 9:57:44 PM

  • Great to know......I will just remember this as a math problem: 5- is good & 20+ is bad = a healthy food. I will be sharing this with my friends. Thanks! - 1/24/2009 1:28:49 PM
  • This is a great article! I now have a more practical idea of what I should be looking for what reading those labels at the grocery store -- I found the 5% and 20% refererences and the info about needing to adjust the percentages based on the number of calories in my plan particularly enlightening. Thanks! - 1/11/2009 1:38:49 AM

    I just wish that companies would be consistent - there are times when the label says 250 ml (or 1 cup) and the bowl of soup (for example) is a single serve container of 341 mL - just do the calories etc for the whole bowl! - 8/25/2008 12:03:56 AM

    This article is great. It helps make sense out of all the #'s and %'s and what they mean. - 5/29/2008 3:39:11 PM
  • Very helpful! Never understood the percents before so I didn't pay attention to them. Now I understand food labels much better! - 4/27/2008 2:44:12 PM
