Slash 164 Calories a Day Just by Reading!

164 is the average number of calories avoided per day by people who look at the calorie info on the nutrition labels of packages foods, compared with those who ignore the labels according to the Journal of the American Dietetic Association

To help us avoid those extra 164 daily calories, a new, voluntary labeling system will be appearing on many products in your local store. Facts up Front is a program where companies will list calories, saturated fat, sodium and sugar information per serving on the front of their packaging. They may also provide information about fiber, vitamins, calcium and other nutrients so you can make a wiser choice as you scan the aisles.
