Beware of Marketing
15
What do the Claims Really Mean?
  • The Claim ""Zero gram trans fats""The Truth
    FDA allows manufacturers to make this claim when
    their products contain less than 0.5 gram of
    trans fats per serving.
  • What You Really Want Looking for ""partially
    hydrogenated,"" ""shortening,"" or
    ""interesterified.""

16
  • The Claim Sugar-FreeThe Truth FDA allows
    manufacturers to make this claim when their
    products contain less than 0.5 gram of sugar per
    serving.
  • The Claim Light (fat)
  • The Truth 50 or less of the fat that in the
    comparison food

17
What do the Claims Really Mean?
  • The Claim "Made with real fruit"
  • "Made with whole grains
  • "Made with vegetables"
  • The Truth The law does not require the label to
    say how much real fruit, whole grain, or
    vegetables are in the product.
  • It sounds healthy, but says nothing about how
    much nutrition is really in the box.

18
  • The Claim Natural
  • The Truth While the term "natural" sounds
    appealing, it really says little about the
    nutritional quality of the food.
  • "natural" is not the same as nutritious. The fat
    marbling in a New York strip steak is "natural,"
    but it's not good for you.

19
Pop Tarts Whole Grain Brown Sugar Cinnamon (2
pastries) 400 calories 14g fat (4g saturated) 28g
sugar It may have whole grains, but it has as
much sugar as a Snickers
20
  • Quaker 100 Natural Granola, Oats, Honey
    Raisins
  • 420 calories
  • 12g fat (7g saturated)
  • 30g sugar
  • More sugar than Cocoa Pebbles!
  • Calorie equivalent 8 chicken wings!

21
We Name Names!!
  • Marie Callender's Chicken Pot Pie has 520
    calories and 12 grams of saturated fat. But look
    again. Those numbers are for half a pie. Eat the
    entire pie, as most people probably do, and
    you're talking more than 1,050 calories and 24
    grams of sat fat (more than a day's worth).

22
Triple Bypass
  • Olive Garden's Tour Of ItalyHomemade Lasagna,
    Lightly Breaded Chicken Parmigiana, and Creamy
    Fettucine Alfredocomes with 1,450 calories, 33
    grams of saturated fat, and 3,830 milligrams of
    sodium. Add a breadstick (150 calories) and a
    plate of Garden-Fresh Salad with dressing (350
    calories) and you've hit 2,000 calories (an
    entire day's worth) in a single meal.

23
Salts On
  • Progresso Traditional, Vegetable Classics, and
    Rich Hearty soups are brimming with salt Half
    a can averages more than half of a person's daily
    quota of salt. Instead, try Progresso's Healthy
    Favorites reduced-sodium soups. All the flavor,
    but up to 50 percent less salt than other canned
    soups..

24
Extreme Ice Cream
  • An average container of Häagen-Dazs ice cream
    squeezes half-a-day's saturated fat and a
    third-of-a-day's cholesterol (egg yolks) into
    your artery walls and makes a 300-calorie down
    payment on your next set of fat cellsif you can
    stop at a petite half-cup!

25
Top Secret
  • Secret Movie Theater Butter Popcorn Snack Size
    Bags has 9 grams of bad fat, 6 of which are
    trans, in just one snack-size bag (6 cups
    popped). Instead, try Orville Redenbacher's Smart
    Pop or Smart Balance Smart 'N Healthy, both of
    which are made with no partially hydrogenated
    oils.
  •  

26
Starbucks on Steroids
  • The Starbucks Venti (20 oz.) Caffè Mocha with 2
    milk and whipped cream is more than a mere cup of
    coffee. Think of it as a McDonald's Quarter
    Pounder in a cup. Few people have room in their
    diets for 410 calories and 10 grams of saturated
    fat that this hefty beverage supplies. But you
    can lose all the bad fat and all but 130 calories
    if you order it with nonfat milk and no whipped
    cream.

27
Tortilla Terror
  • Interested in a Chipotle Chicken Burrito
    (tortilla, rice, pinto beans, cheese, chicken,
    sour cream, and salsa)? Think of its 1,050
    calories and 17½ grams of saturated fat and 2,610
    mg of sodium as two 6-inch Subway Steak and
    Cheese, plus a scoop of Ben Jerry's Chunky
    Monkey Ice Cream! Getting the burrito with no
    cheese or sour cream cuts the saturated fat to 6
    grams, but you still end up with 830 calories and
    2,400 mg of sodium. Yikes!

28
Stone Cold
  • Into the chocolate-dipped waffle bowl of a Cold
    Stone Creamery Gotta Have It Founder's Favorite
    goes, not just a 12-ounce, softball-sized mound
    of ice cream, but pecans, brownie pieces, fudge,
    and caramel. The tab a startling 1,600 calories
    and 42 grams of saturated fat. That's roughly
    what you'd get if you polished off five
    single-scoop ice cream cones.

29
10 Super Foods
30
Sweet Potatoes
  • A nutritional All-Star one of the best
    vegetables you can eat. They're loaded with
    carotenoids, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.
    Bake and then mix in some unsweetened applesauce
    or crushed pineapple for extra moisture and
    sweetness.

31
Grape Tomatoes
  • They're sweeter and firmer than other tomatoes,
    and their bite-size shape makes them perfect for
    snacking, dipping, or salads. They're packed with
    vitamin C and vitamin A, and you also get some
    fiber, some phytochemicals, and (finally) great
    flavor.

32
Fat-Free or 1 Milk ............(Skim)
.............(but not 2)
  • An excellent source of calcium, vitamins, and
    protein with little or no artery-clogging fat and
    cholesterol. Likewise for low-fat yogurt. Soy
    milk can be just as nutritious if the company
    fortifies it..

33
Spinach and Kale
  • These standout leafy greens are jampacked with
    vitamins A, C, and K, folate, potassium,
    magnesium, iron, lutein, and phytochemicals.

34
Broccoli
  • It has lots of vitamin C, carotenoids, and folic
    acid. Steam it briefly and add a sprinkle of red
    pepper flakes and a sprinkle of lemon juice.

35
Wild Salmon
  • The omega-3 fats in fatty fish like salmon can
    help reduce the risk of sudden-death heart
    attacks. And wild-caught salmon has less
    contaminants than farmed salmon.

36
Crispbreads
  • Whole-grain rye crackers, like Wasa, Ry Krisp,
    and Ryvita usually called crispbreads are
    loaded with fiber and often fat-free.

37
Microwaveable Quick-Cooking Brown Rice
  • Quick-cooking (10 minutes) or microwaveable (90
    seconds) brown rice are easy to prepare and more
    nutritious than enriched white rice. When the
    grain is refined, you lose the fiber, magnesium,
    vitamins E and B-6, copper, zinc, and
    phytochemicals that are in the whole grain.

38
Citrus Fruit
  • Great-tasting and rich in vitamin C, folic acid,
    and fiber. Perfect for a snack or dessert. Try
    different varieties juicy Minneola oranges,
    snacksize Clementines, or tart pink grapefruit.

39
Diced Butternut Squash
  • Steam a slice or buy diced butternut sqash at the
    supermarket that's ready to go into the oven, a
    stir-fry, or a soup. It's an easy way to get
    payloads of vitamins A and C and fiber.
