Food Labels Calories
Food labels list calories by the amount in each serving size. Serving sizes differ from one food to the next, so to figure out how many calories you’re eating, you’ll need to do three things:
- Look at the serving size.
- See how many calories there are in one serving.
- Multiply the number of calories by the number of servings you’re going to eat.
For example, a bag of cookies may list three cookies as a serving size. But if you eat six cookies, you are really eating two servings, not one. To figure out how many calories those two servings contain, you must double the calories in one serving.
When you start looking at food labels, you may be surprised at some of the serving sizes. For example, on the labels of six cold breakfast cereals, the serving size ranges from ½ cup to 1¾ cups. You would have to more than triple the smallest serving size to compare the calories in that cereal with the calories in the cereal with the largest serving size (1¾ cups). A small bag of corn chips may contain two or more servings — although most people would eat the entire bag! That’s why it’s always important to check the serving size of all foods on the label.

If your goal is weight loss, you must cut back on your caloric intake and include a sufficient amount of cardiovascular exercise in your exercise routine to increase your energy output. Generally, a pound of fat is equal to 3,500 calories. To lose 1 pound of fat per week, you need to create a calorie deficit of around 3,500 calories. Consult your doctor if you are unsure of your recommended caloric intake. Spot training and specific abdominal exercises will help tone your underlying core muscles, but they won’t help burn fat, says the Mayo Clinic.

“Skip the extra sugar calories found in most yogurts and pump up the protein by choosing Greek yogurt that contains twice as much protein, which is great for weight control because it keeps you feeling full longer,”
If you are watching your carbohydrate intake or have a sensitivity to carbohydrates like diabetes, then Greek yogurt is your ticket. Regular yogurts have 15 to 17 grams of carbohydrates per cup, where Greek yogurt averages around 9 grams.
Because Greek yogurt contains less carbohydrates than regular yogurt, it has less lactose, the sugar in dairy products that can sometimes upset people’s stomachs. This is especially helpful for people who have lactose intolerance.
Greek yogurt can be used for many dishes including savory and sweet. Due to its thick texture and rich taste, many people use it as a substitute for milk, sour cream and even use it for baking.
[ I love to eat Greek Yogurt, with blueberries and I use it insted of Sour cream ]
