posted by 11:55PM Eastern Time on Sunday.As someone who is a personal trainer, fitness is my life and helping others create a more healthy lifestyle is what I do everyday. I am constantly talking about eating plans and what to buy at the store. One statistic that I believe is very misleading and very confusing is when food says 15% less fat or 50% less sugar. These foods like to show off big numbers to make it appear that you are choosing a healthy food but in reality, this is misleading. Usually the percentage that is showsis only the amount off per serving. The serving is usually less than what most people eat in a serving so when they have their normal portion of what they are eating, they end up having just as much sugar or whatever it is they were trying to cut out anyway. In order for this to be more
helpful to people, the statistic on the label should state how much sugar or fat is being cut out of eat serving if the person eats a certain amount. I also hate this kind of advertising because even though it is not really a statistic, the food that is being advertised with no sugar or whatever it is, they usually replace that ingredient with something equally as bad with a different name. Its statistics like food labels that makes eating healthier even harder than it already is and I believe abig part of why our country is so over weight. People care more about making money than they do being healthy.
