How would someone go about getting some kind of law or whatever passed about nutritional information?
I have been thinking over the past few days about serving size, and the loop holes that allow companies to label things "fat free" so long as they are under a certain amount per serving. And of course we all know how small the serving sizes become. I think all the "hidden fats" in our diet are really what messes us up. I mean we all know what foods are high fat..MC Donalds etc. i mean its common sense.
But for things such as cooking spray, I'm thinking 99% of the population thinks they are being healthier, which fine they are..but not as healthy as they think. I was looking at my cooking spray that I had been using, and it never dawned on me to check serving size.
1/4 of a spray. Wtf is that? How do you even know how much that is. I am assuming that it takes about 6 full sprays (however long that is) to even coat a pan and be able to cook in it.
I am interested in trying to get something together to push for these changes to be made on nutritional labels.
I also think GI numbers should be posted on the labels also. I mean we have "Net Carbs" which your avg person probably doesn't even know what that is supposed to mean.
well what is the other 30???? I think a GI index reference would be good. I mean the media is always covering how fat people are etc. I think something like this would be a huge step in the right direction at the overall health of not only us fat Americans, but the entire world. Europe is starting to see an obesity "epidemic" as well.
so whos with me?!?!?! lol
How do you even start something like this? I mean if we pool our resources, and get pretty much everyone from every fitness site on the net to get involved, I think we would have a pretty strong presence.
