Tip #4: Eagle Eye All Labels

Before buying any packaged foods, read the label and become familiar with the ingredients that are best to avoid.

Generally speaking, if the list of ingredients is long and includes words that are unfamiliar or you can not pronounce, buyer beware.

Learn the “buzz” words that represent chemicals and foodstuffs that are harmful to you:

Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
Hydrolyzed protein (contains monosodium glutamate)
Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats
Sugars which come disguised as: corn and other syrups, lactose, maltose, sucrose, fructose, dextrose, dextrin, malt, fruit juice concentrates, and even the words “no sugar added” means there is sugar in that product
Artificial sugars such as aspartame
Salt or sodium chloride which is hidden in almost all processed foods, especially breads and canned goods
Enriched white flour or wheat flour (wheat means white)
Natural flavors
Red 40 (or any color on the label)

Learn to be suspicious of anything that has a label. Every label is guilty until proven innocent.
