Numbers Matter!


Are you paying attention to the labels on the foods you eat? What may seem like an insignificant difference may actually be more significant than you thought. Take, for example, yogurt. If you are a yogurt consumer, you may prefer a flavored variety, such as vanilla. If you were to switch from a daily vanilla yogurt at 13g of sugar per serving to plain yogurt at 4g of sugar per serving, you would save 45g of sugar over the course of the work week. That would be a savings of 180g over the course of a month and 2160g of sugar in a year's time. Those numbers are significant and matter! With the gaps in the medical system, you are unlikely to be asked about your diet in any detailed manner at your regular physician appointments. Therefore, it is up to you to make positive changes in your diet.
