Understanding

Nutrition labels

5

in these

easy steps

You hear it all the time: reAd food lABelS! But what does all that nutritional information actually mean? Here are some quick tips to help you interpret the labels so you can make HeAltHY cHoiceS:

1

First look at the Serving Size and the Servings per Container. This will help you identify the right portion size. For instance, if the label says there are 2 servings per container, only eat half of what’s in the container!

2

Notice the total number of Calories per Serving. A good rule of thumb is to make sure that for every 100 calories, there are no more than 3 grams of fat.

3 4

Limit these: total fat (including saturated and trans fat), cholesterol, and sodium.

Get plenty of these nutrients: fiber, vitamins, calcium, and don’t forget iron.

5

Use the % Daily Value to determine what is a high or low number for your daily diet. A % Daily Value of 5% or less is low, while 20% or more is high.

Created in 1994 through the committed efforts of the Entertainment Industry Foundation, Lilly Tartikoff and Ronald O. Perelman, the EIF Revlon Run/Walk For Women has grown to become one of the nation's largest single day fundraising events. To date, the Run/Walks (in LA and NY) have distributed over $68 million for cancer research, treatment, counseling and outreach programs. Thanks in part to these funds, new treatments are being developed and lives are being saved. The EIF Revlon Run/ Walk For Women is a wonderful opportunity to come out and participate with Lucille Roberts in stomping out women’s cancers. What are you doing on May 3rd?

For a Healthier You! i t’s all about balance. if you’re trying to keep up with a healthy lifestyle in 2014, the first thing you need to do is balance your calories with your physical activity. Now that doesn’t mean that after you’ve finished on the elliptical you head over to your favorite fast-food joint. You still need to eat healthy! doing so will put you on the road to achieving or maintaining a healthy weight and reducing the risk of developing diet-related chronic diseases. try eating more whole grains, vegetables, fruits and seafood. these food groups will help you feel fuller longer, without having to turn to unhealthy options. According to the dietary Guidelines, Americans attribute more than one-third of their calories to solid fats and sugars. cut back on your intake of solid and trans fat and replace them with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. liquid vegetable oils like canola, peanut, olive, and snack foods like olives, avocados, nuts and seeds are loaded with good fats.
