I mentioned on my blog before that I use to work at a weight loss clinic. The program I helped clients do had 3 parts: weight loss, transition then maintenance. Basically, I helped people lose weight using pre portioned diet food then taught them how to transition back into eating real food to keep their weight off for good!
In this maintenance phase I covered topics like how to approach the grocery store, what your plate should look like, what proper serving sizes look like and most importantly how to read a nutrition label.
Instead of boring my clients to death breaking down a nutrition label into every single teeny tiny part I would always highlight the 5 things I personally thought were the most important to check.
I believe it is so incredibly beneficial to know what to look for on a nutrition label and hope you find this post educational!
