ARE FAT FREE FOODS REALLY FAT FREE?
By Marshall Mallie
 IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER THAT THERE IS A LITTLE TRICKERY IN LABELING UNLESS YOU ARE SINCERE ABOUT YOUR FAT INTAKE. BELOW ARE TWO EXAMPLES OF COMMON HOUSEHOLD FOOD ITEMS THAT SAY FAT FREE AND AREN'T. IT DOES MATTER IN CASES WHERE THE AMOUNT OF SERVINGS THAT YOU DO USE IS GREATER THAN ONE. YOU CAN SEE FOR YOURSELF WHAT I AM POINTING OUT FOR YOU.


IN THE ABOVE EXAMPLE OF SPRAY BUTTER THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY 452 GRAMS OF FAT IN THE CONTAINER AND IN THE  SPRAY BUTTER EXAMPLE BELOW THERE ARE ABOUT 278 GRAMS OF FAT. NOW BOTH THE SPRAY BUTTER ABOVE AND THE SPRAY OIL BELOW SAY 0 GRAMS OF FAT
 AND CALORIES PER SERVING. 
IS THAT RIGHT?
 
HOW CAN OIL AND BUTTER BE FAT FREE? WELL, I ASKED MYSELF THE SAME QUESTION AND HERE IS THE ANSWER.
NUTRITION LABELS ARE GOVERNED BY GOVERNMENT REGULATORY AGENCIES AND THE SAD PART ABOUT IT IS THAT THE RULE OF THUMB IS THAT .5 GRAMS OF FAT OR LESS IS ALLOWED TO BE ROUNDED DOWN TO ZERO. TO MAKE THINGS EVEN MORE CONFUSING AND COMPLICATED THE FOOD COMPANIES DECIDED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS AND LOWER THERE PORTIONS ( SERVING SIZES PER CONTAINER) TO MAKE IT SEEM TO US (THE CONSUMER) THAT THEIR PRODUCTS HAVE LESS FAT THAN THEY REALLY DO. NOW THIS IS SUPPOSED TO MAKE US BELIEVE
THAT WE ARE EATING HEALTHY?
 WE NEED TO READ THE LABELS VERY CAREFULLY THESE DAYS BECAUSE MANY OF THE PACKAGES YOU WOULD THINK ARE SINGLE SERVINGS ARE MARKED IN THE FINE PRINT AS 2 SERVINGS OR AS IN THE SPRAY BUTTER  ABOVE THERE ARE 904 SERVINGS PER CONTAINER. THIS MEANS THAT THER COULD BE AND MOST PROBABLY IS  .5 FAT GRAMS X 904 SERVINGS OR 452 GRAMS OF FAT IN THAT CONTAINER.  NOW READ THE LABEL EVEN CLOSER AND YOU WILL SEE THAT EACH SERVING THAT THIS MANUFACTURER STATES IS 1.25 SPRAYS. 
NOW IF YOU COULD GET OUT .25 OF A SPRAY THIS WOULD MEAN THAT THERE IS .5 GRAM OF FAT  X 6 SERVINGS = 3 GRAMS OF FAT
 FOR JUST 7&1/2 PUMPS OF SPRAY BUTTER.
____________________________________________________________________________________________  
 

IN THE EXAMPLE BELOW THE SERVING SIZE IS 1/3 SECOND SPRAY AND 557 SERVINGS. OK, I KNOW THAT I AM NOT AN OIL FREAK SO WHEN I SPRAY A PAN I WOULD COUNT OUT 3 SECONDS OF SPRAY. THAT IS 9 SERVINGS OR 4.5 GRAMS OF FAT. NOW YOU KNOW.
 I USED TO PUT SPRAY BUTTER ON MY SMART POP POPCORN. THEN I FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS .5 ROUNDING DOWN RULE. I WAS ACTUALLY SABOTAGING MYSELF THINKING I WAS ADDING O FAT WHEN IN REALITY I WAS ADDING ABOUT 12 GRAMS OF FAT.THE LESSON HERE IS THAT IF YOU USE MORE THAN ONE SERVING AND IT SAYS FAT FREE OR O FAT GRAMS THEN IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO USE YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND COUNT THOSE EXTRA FAT GRAMS AT .5 EACH SINCE THEY REALLY DO AD UP     .

Survey Shows Gains in Food-Label Use, Health/Diet Awareness


   

Graphic of PDF of this article: Survey Shows Gains in Food-Label Use, Health/Diet Awareness, including photo of woman reading the food label on a box of something in a grocery store

On this page 

More than half of consumers in the United States often read the food label when buying a product for the first time. These consumers are also increasingly aware of the link between diet and heart disease.

Those are among the key findings that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released from a snapshot of the nation's dietary habits.

FDA released findings from the 2008 telephone survey of more than 2,500 adults in every state and the District of Columbia on March 2, 2010. This is the 10th such survey since 1982. The most recent previous surveys were conducted in 2002 and 2004.

 

Linking Diet and Heart Disease

Among the highlights of survey findings in regard to how diet affects health:

  • More U.S. consumers know of the relationship between diet and heart disease. Ninety-one percent knew of this link, an 8 percent jump from 2002. In addition, 62 percent of consumers mentioned fats as a factor related to heart disease, compared to 53 percent in 2002.
  • Eighty-one percent of consumers know that certain foods or drinks may help prevent heart disease or heart attacks. This result showed no change from 2002. While fruits and vegetables were most frequently linked with reducing heart disease, fewer people made this link in 2008 than in 2002.
  • Consumers' awareness that trans fats in the diet may raise the risk of heart disease nearly doubled over just four years, from 32 percent in 2004 to 62 percent.
  • Correct identification that omega 3 fatty acids may lower the risk of heart disease increased, from 31 percent in 2004 to 52 percent in 2008.
  • Knowledge that saturated fat may raise the risk of heart disease was stable: it was 74 percent in 2004 and 73 percent in 2008.

Food Label Highlights

Findings in regard to food labels include

  • More than half (54 percent) of consumers said they read a product's label the first time they buy the product. That's a 10 percent increase from 2002.
  • Among those who in 2008 reported they read the nutrition label the first time they buy a product
    • two-thirds use the label “often” to check how high or low a food is in calories and in substances such as salt, vitamins, and fat
    • 55 percent “often” use the label to get a general idea of the food's nutritional content
    • 46 percent “often” use the calorie information on the label. Thirty-four percent rarely or never use the calorie information
  • Thirty-eight percent of consumers said they use nutrient content claims (such as “low fat,” “high fiber,” and “cholesterol-free”) “often”; 34 percent answered “sometimes.”
  • When asked if they refer to the label claim of “0 grams of trans fat,” 31 percent said “often” and 36 percent said “sometimes.”

The survey found differing degrees of trust about claims found on food labels. For example, 41 percent of consumers believe that all or most of claims such as “low fat,” “high fiber,” or “cholesterol free” are accurate, while 56 percent believe that some or none of them are accurate.

Also, 64 percent of consumers reported seeing nutrition labeling on menus, napkins, or place mats in restaurants. About half of these consumers use this information often or sometimes.

Eating Habits

The survey also examined eating habits. Among findings in that category were that 54 percent of consumers reported eating breakfast seven days a week, while 8 percent said they skip the meal every day. In contrast, 86 percent said they eat dinner seven days a week, while 1 percent said they always skip it.

People look at food labels for different reasons.
 But whatever the reason, many consumers would like to know how to use this information more effectively and easily. The following label-building skills are intended to make it easier for you to use nutrition labels to make quick, informed food choices that contribute to a healthy diet.

 The Nutrition Facts Label - An Overview:

The information in the main or top section (see #1-4 and #6 on the sample nutrition label below), can vary with each food product; it contains product-specific information (serving size, calories, and nutrient information). The bottom part (see #5 on the sample label below) contains a footnote with Daily Values (DVs) for 2,000 and 2,500 calorie diets. This footnote provides recommended dietary information for important nutrients, including fats, sodium and fiber. The footnote is found only on larger packages and does not change from product to product.

In the following Nutrition Facts label we have colored certain sections to help you focus on those areas that will be explained in detail. You will not see these colors on the food labels on products you purchase.


  Sample Label for Macaroni & Cheese  
 #1. Start Here with the serving size. Title and Serving Size Information section of label, with number of servings.  
 #2. Calories from Fat. Calorie section of label, showing number of calories per serving and calories from fat.  
 #3. Limit These Nutrients: Total Fat, Saturated Fat, Cholesterol, and Sodium. Total Fat, Saturated Fat Cholesterol, Sodium with Total Carbohydrate section of label, with quantities and % daily values.  #6. Quick Guide to %DV.
 #4. Get Enough of These Nutrients: Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, and Iron. Remaining Carbohydrates, including Dietary Fiber and Sugars, Protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium and Iron section of label with % daily values, and quantities for fiber, sugar and protein. #6. Quick Guide to %DV: 5% or less is Low / 20% or more is High.
 #5. The Footnote, or Lower part of the Nutrition Facts Label. Footnote section of label, indicating quantities of total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, total carbohydrate, and dietary fiber for 2000 and 2500 calorie diets.  

 

 image of circle 1 The Serving Size

Serving Size section of label.(#1 on sample label):
The first place to start when you look at the Nutrition Facts label is the serving size and the number of servings in the package. Serving sizes are standardized to make it easier to compare similar foods; they are provided in familiar units, such as cups or pieces, followed by the metric amount, e.g., the number of grams.


The size of the serving on the food package influences the number of calories and all the nutrient amounts listed on the top part of the label. Pay attention to the serving size, especially how many servings there are in the food package. Then ask yourself, "How many servings am I consuming"? (e.g., 1/2 serving, 1 serving, or more) In the sample label, one serving of macaroni and cheese equals one cup. If you ate the whole package, you would eat two cups. That doubles the calories and other nutrient numbers, including the %Daily Values as shown in the sample label.

Example
  Single Serving %DV       Double Serving %DV
Serving Size 1 cup (228g)   2 cups (456g)  
Calories 250   500  
Calories from Fat 110   220  
Total Fat 12g 18% 24g 36%
Trans Fat 1.5g   3g  
Saturated Fat 3g 15% 6g 30%
Cholesterol 30mg 10% 60mg 20%
Sodium 470mg 20% 940mg 40%
Total Carbohydrate 31g 10% 62g 20%
Dietary Fiber 0g 0% 0g 0%
Sugars 5g   10g  
Protein 5g   10g  
Vitamin A   4%   8%
Vitamin C   2%   4%
Calcium   20%   40%
Iron   4%   8%

 


 Circle 2 Calories (and Calories from Fat)

Calories provide a measure of how much energy you get from a serving of this food. Many Americans consume more calories than they need without meeting recommended intakes for a number of nutrients. The calorie section of the label can help you manage your weight (i.e., gain, lose, or maintain.) Remember: the number of servings you consume determines the number of calories you actually eat (your portion amount).

Calories from Fat section of label, also showing total calories. (#2 on sample label):
In the example, there are 250 calories in one serving of this macaroni and cheese. How many calories from fat are there in ONE serving? Answer: 110 calories, which means almost half the calories in a single serving come from fat. What if you ate the whole package content? Then, you would consume two servings, or 500 calories, and 220 would come from fat.

General Guide to Calories
  • 40 Calories is low
  • 100 Calories is moderate
  • 400 Calories or more is high

The General Guide to Calories provides a general reference for calories when you look at a Nutrition Facts label. This guide is based on a 2,000 calorie diet.

Eating too many calories per day is linked to overweight and obesity.



 circle 3circle 4 The Nutrients: How Much?

(#3 and 4 on sample label):
Look at the top of the nutrient section in the sample label. It shows you some key nutrients that impact on your health and separates them into two main groups:

   Limit These Nutrients

Label section showing Total Fat, Saturated Fat, Cholesterol, and Sodium, with quantities and % daily values. (#3 on sample label):
The nutrients listed first are the ones Americans generally eat in adequate amounts, or even too much. They are identified in yellow as Limit these Nutrients. Eating too much fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, or sodium may increase your risk of certain chronic diseases, like heart disease, some cancers, or high blood pressure.

 Important: Health experts recommend that you keep your intake of saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol as low as possible as part of a nutritionally balanced diet.

   Get Enough of These

Label sections showing Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, and Iron, with % daily values and quantity of dietary fiber. (#4 on sample label):
Most Americans don't get enough dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron in their diets. They are identified in blue as Get Enough of these Nutrients. Eating enough of these nutrients can improve your health and help reduce the risk of some diseases and conditions. For example, getting enough calcium may reduce the risk of osteoporosis, a condition that results in brittle bones as one ages (see calcium section below). Eating a diet high in dietary fiber promotes healthy bowel function. Additionally, a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and grain products that contain dietary fiber, particularly soluble fiber, and low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Remember: You can use the Nutrition Facts label not only to help limit those nutrients you want to cut back on but also to increase those nutrients you need to consume in greater amounts.



 circle 5 Understanding the Footnote on the Bottom of the Nutrition Facts Label

Foootnote section of label, indicating values for 2000 and 2500 calorie diets highlighting the statement: * Percent Daily Values are based on a 2000 calorie diet.(#5 on sample label)
Note the * used after the heading "%Daily Value" on the Nutrition Facts label. It refers to the Footnote in the lower part of the nutrition label, which tells you "%DVs are based on a 2,000 calorie diet". This statement must be on all food labels. But the remaining information in the full footnote may not be on the package if the size of the label is too small. When the full footnote does appear, it will always be the same. It doesn't change from product to product, because it shows recommended dietary advice for all Americans--it is not about a specific food product.

Look at the amounts circled in red in the footnote--these are the Daily Values (DV) for each nutrient listed and are based on public health experts' advice. DVs are recommended levels of intakes. DVs in the footnote are based on a 2,000 or 2,500 calorie diet. Note how the DVs for some nutrients change, while others (for cholesterol and sodium) remain the same for both calorie amounts.

 How the Daily Values Relate to the %DVs

Look at the example below for another way to see how the Daily Values (DVs) relate to the %DVs and dietary guidance. For each nutrient listed there is a DV, a %DV, and dietary advice or a goal. If you follow this dietary advice, you will stay within public health experts' recommended upper or lower limits for the nutrients listed, based on a 2,000 calorie daily diet.

Examples of DVs versus %DVs
Based on a 2,000 Calorie Diet

Nutrient DV %DV Goal
Total Fat 65g = 100%DV Less than
    Sat Fat 20g = 100%DV Less than
Cholesterol 300mg = 100%DV Less than
Sodium 2400mg = 100%DV Less than
Total Carbohydrate 300g = 100%DV At least
    Dietary Fiber 25g = 100%DV At least

Upper Limit - Eat "Less than"...

The nutrients that have "upper daily limits" are listed first on the footnote of larger labels and on the example above. Upper limits means it is recommended that you stay below - eat "less than" - the Daily Value nutrient amounts listed per day. For example, the DV for Saturated fat (in the yellow section) is 20g. This amount is 100% DV for this nutrient. What is the goal or dietary advice? To eat "less than" 20 g or 100%DV for the day.<

Lower Limit - Eat "At least"...

Now look at the section in blue where dietary fiber is listed. The DV for dietary fiber is 25g, which is 100% DV. This means it is recommended that you eat "at least" this amount of dietary fiber per day.

The DV for Total Carbohydrate (section in white) is 300g or 100%DV. This amount is recommended for a balanced daily diet that is based on 2,000 calories, but can vary, depending on your daily intake of fat and protein.

Now let's look at the %DVs.


 

circle 6 The Percent Daily Value (%DV):

Percent Daily Value

%DV section of the sample label aboveThe % Daily Values (%DVs) are based on the Daily Value recommendations for key nutrients but only for a 2,000 calorie daily diet--not 2,500 calories. You, like most people, may not know how many calories you consume in a day. But you can still use the %DV as a frame of reference whether or not you consume more or less than 2,000 calories.

The %DV helps you determine if a serving of food is high or low in a nutrient. Note: a few nutrients, like trans fat, do not have a %DV--they will be discussed later.

Do you need to know how to calculate percentages to use the %DV? No, the label (the %DV) does the math for you. It helps you interpret the numbers (grams and milligrams) by putting them all on the same scale for the day (0-100%DV). The %DV column doesn't add up vertically to 100%. Instead each nutrient is based on 100% of the daily requirements for that nutrient (for a 2,000 calorie diet). This way you can tell high from low and know which nutrients contribute a lot, or a little, to your daily recommended allowance (upper or lower).


 Quick Guide to %DV:

 Nutrients with %DVs section of the label.  5%DV or less is low and 20%DV or more is high 
(#6 on sample label):
This guide tells you that 5%DV or less is low for all nutrients, those you want to limit (e.g., fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium), or for those that you want to consume in greater amounts (fiber, calcium, etc). As the Quick Guide shows, 20%DV or more is high for all nutrients.

Example: Look at the amount of Total Fat in one serving listed on the sample nutrition label. Is 18%DV contributing a lot or a little to your fat limit of 100% DV? Check the Quick Guide to %DV. 18%DV, which is below 20%DV, is not yet high, but what if you ate the whole package (two servings)? You would double that amount, eating 36% of your daily allowance for Total Fat. Coming from just one food, that amount leaves you with 64% of your fat allowance (100%-36%=64%) for all of the other foods you eat that day, snacks and drinks included.


1 serving Illustration of previous sentence concerning % fat allowance in one serving.
2 servings Illustration of previous sentence concerning % fat allowance in two servings.

Using the %DV for:

Comparisons: The %DV also makes it easy for you to make comparisons. You can compare one product or brand to a similar product. Just make sure the serving sizes are similar, especially the weight (e.g. gram, milligram, ounces) of each product. It's easy to see which foods are higher or lower in nutrients because the serving sizes are generally consistent for similar types of foods, (see the comparison example at the end) except in a few cases like cereals.

Nutrient Content Claims: Use the %DV to help you quickly distinguish one claim from another, such as "reduced fat" vs. "light" or "nonfat." Just compare the %DVs for Total Fat in each food product to see which one is higher or lower in that nutrient--there is no need to memorize definitions. This works when comparing all nutrient content claims, e.g., less, light, low, free, more, high, etc.

Dietary Trade-Offs: You can use the %DV to help you make dietary trade-offs with other foods throughout the day. You don't have to give up a favorite food to eat a healthy diet. When a food you like is high in fat, balance it with foods that are low in fat at other times of the day. Also, pay attention to how much you eat so that the total amount of fat for the day stays below 100%DV.


 Nutrients With a %DV but No Weight Listed - Spotlight on Calcium:

Calcium: Label of nonfat milk with calcium daily value of 30% circled. Look at the %DV for calcium on food packages so you know how much one serving contributes to the total amount you need per day. Remember, a food with 20%DV or more contributes a lot of calcium to your daily total, while one with 5%DV or less contributes a little.

Experts advise adult consumers to consume adequate amounts of calcium, that is, 1,000mg or 100%DV in a daily 2,000 calorie diet. This advice is often given in milligrams (mg), but the Nutrition Facts label only lists a %DV for calcium.

For certain populations, they advise that adolescents, especially girls, consume 1,300mg (130%DV) and post-menopausal women consume 1,200mg (120%DV) of calcium daily. The DV for calcium on food labels is 1,000mg.

Don't be fooled -- always check the label for calcium because you can't make assumptions about the amount of calcium in specific food categories. Example: the amount of calcium in milk, whether skim or whole, is generally the same per serving, whereas the amount of calcium in the same size yogurt container (8oz) can vary from 20-45 %DV.


Illustration of above sentence.

Equivalencies
30% DV = 300mg calcium = one cup of milk
100% DV = 1,000mg calcium
130% DV = 1,300mg calcium

 

 Nutrients Without a %DV: Trans Fats, Protein, and Sugars:

Note that Trans fat, Sugars and, Protein do not list a %DV on the Nutrition Facts label.

Plain Yogurt
Sample label for Pain Yogurt - Trans Fat: 0g, Protein 13g, Sugars 10g
Fruit Yogurt
Sample label for Fruit Yogurt - Trans Fat: 0g, Protein 9g, Sugars 44g

Trans Fat: Experts could not provide a reference value for trans fat nor any other information that FDA believes is sufficient to establish a Daily Value or %DV. Scientific reports link trans fat (and saturated fat) with raising blood LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels, both of which increase your risk of coronary heart disease, a leading cause of death in the US.

Important: Health experts recommend that you keep your intake of saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol as low as possible as part of a nutritionally balanced diet.

Protein: A %DV is required to be listed if a claim is made for protein, such as "high in protein". Otherwise, unless the food is meant for use by infants and children under 4 years old, none is needed. Current scientific evidence indicates that protein intake is not a public health concern for adults and children over 4 years of age.

Sugars: No daily reference value has been established for sugars because no recommendations have been made for the total amount to eat in a day. Keep in mind, the sugars listed on the Nutrition Facts label include naturally occurring sugars (like those in fruit and milk) as well as those added to a food or drink. Check the ingredient list for specifics on added sugars.

Take a look at the Nutrition Facts label for the two yogurt examples. The plain yogurt on the left has 10g of sugars, while the fruit yogurt on the right has 44g of sugars in one serving.

Now look below at the ingredient lists for the two yogurts. Ingredients are listed in descending order of weight (from most to least). Note that no added sugars or sweeteners are in the list of ingredients for the plain yogurt, yet 10g of sugars were listed on the Nutrition Facts label. This is because there are no added sugars in plain yogurt, only naturally occurring sugars (lactose in the milk).

Plain Yogurt - contains no added sugars
Ingredients: Cultured pasteurized grade A nonfat milk, whey protein concentrate, pectin, carrageenan.
Fruit Yogurt - contains added sugars
Ingredients: Cultured grade A reduced fat milk, apples, high fructose corn syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, natural flavors, and pectin. Contains active yogurt and L. acidophilus cultures.

If you are concerned about your intake of sugars, make sure that added sugars are not listed as one of the first few ingredients. Other names for added sugars include: corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, fruit juice concentrate, maltose, dextrose, sucrose, honey, and maple syrup.

To limit nutrients that have no %DV, like trans fat and sugars, compare the labels of similar products and choose the food with the lowest amount.



 

Comparison Example

Below are two kinds of milk- one is "Reduced Fat," the other is "Nonfat" milk. Each serving size is one cup. Which has more calories and more saturated fat? Which one has more calcium?

REDUCED FAT MILK
2% Milkfat
NONFAT MILK
Label of lowfat milk (2% milkfat) with 120 calories, 8%DV fat and 15%DV saturated fat circled. Label of nonfat milk with 80 calories, 0%DV fat and 0%DV saturated fat circled.

 

 

 Answer: As you can see, they both have the same amount of calcium, but the nonfat milk has no saturated fat and has 40 calories less per serving than the reduced fat milk.

EATING SMARTTM
ON MARSHALL'SPLANTM  MEANS YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO DIET AGAIN. YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO
 
EATSMART TO THINKSMARTTM 
FOR A LIFETIME.

 

DIET MEANS TEMPORARY:

  IF YOU ARE READY TO START LOSING FAT, DON'T CHOOSE A DIET PLAN - PLEASE GIVE UP THE NOTION THAT IT'S GOING TO LAST. DIETS DON'T LAST. THAT IS WHY THEY CALL THEM DIETS.
 I KNOW YOU ARE LOOKING AGAIN FOR THAT NEW WAY TO MAKE A CHANGE.
 IT PROBABLY TOOK YOU MONTHS
OR PERHAPS YEARS
TO GET PSYCHED TO GET TO THIS STARTING POINT.
DON'T DISAPPOINT YOURSELF AGAIN BY MAKING ANOTHER DIET CHOICE THAT IS TEMPORARY. BY DIETING YOU'LL PROBABLY PUT ON MORE WEIGHT THAN WHEN YOU STARTED. BESIDES, YOU STILL HAVEN'T LEARNED ANYTHING EXCEPT HOW TO STARVE YOURSELF AND EVENTUALLY GO BACK TO YOUR STARTING POINT OR WORSE.  ALSO, DIETING CAN PUT YOUR HEALTH ON THE WRONG TRACK! I KNOW, IT'S HAPPENED
TO ME AND MANY OF MY CLIENTS (FRIENDS) BEFORE YOU.
  YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE:
 ACTUALLY, YOU HAVE COME TO THE BEST PLACE BECAUSE IN THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT WILL TAKE YOU TO GET STARTED AND LOSE SOME WEIGHT YOU CAN BECOME AN EXPERT FOR LIFE WITH MY EAT SMART TM   SYSTEM. 
YOU WILL STAY ON TRACK PERMANENTLY.


  IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING DIET PILLS, PLEASE DO NOT USE THEM, THEY USUALLY HAVE HARMFUL SIDE EFFECTS AND MAKE MOST PEOPLE NERVOUS, AND BY USING THEM YOU STILL HAVEN'T LEARNED HOW TO FUEL YOUR BODY EFFICIENTLY.
 
I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE THAT MOST OF US CAN'T BE WEIGHT MANAGEMENT EXPERTS ON OUR OWN,
I URGE YOU TO LEARN  MY EAT SMART TM  SYSTEM FOR YOUR HEALTHY FUTURE AND
GET ON THE RIGHT TRACK WITH ME TODAY.

THE SCALE:
SINCE MUSCLE WEIGHS MORE THAN FAT AND WEIGHT ON A SCALE IS JUST A MEASURE OF IT,
I FIND THE SCALE TOTALLY IRRELEVANT TO ACCOMPLISHING OUR GOAL. I BELIEVE THAT WE SHOULD JUDGE THE PROGRESS OF OUR GOAL BY MEASUREMENTS, HOW WE FEEL, OUR APPEARANCE, AND HOW OUR CLOTHES FIT.
 ALL THE ABOVE IS RELATIVE TO THE APPLICATION OF MY SYSTEM CONCERNING THE INTAKE OF CALORIES, PROTEIN AND FAT.

        MARSHALL ANSWERS YOUR QUESTIONS
          AN INTRICATE  AND CONCISE 
                      INTERVIEW WITH MARSHALL.
      
*HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ON A DIET? = YES
*HOW DO YOU FEEL DIETING? = WEAK, NERVOUS, HEADACHES, DEPRIVED, LETHARGIC, AND         DEPRESSED.
* HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU DIETED IN THE PAST. = COUNTLESS
*WHY DON'T THEY WORK? = BECAUSE OF THE WAY I FELT = WEAK, NERVOUS, HEADACHES, DEPRIVED, LETHARGIC, DEPRESSED. BEING THINNER ISN'T WORTH THE SYMPTOMS, SO I
GAVE UP AFTER AWHILE.
*IS THERE A BETTER A BETTER WAY. = YES
*HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN ON MARSHALL'S PLAN TM?  = (EATING SMART TM) = 21 YEARS
  
*WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT THE RESULTS YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED?
= I CAN THINK CLEARLY, THIS ENABLES ME TO PLAN MY GOALS INTELLIGENTLY, PRIORITIZE THEM, AND HAVE MORE TIME TO SPEND ON THE THINGS I LIKE DOING MOST.

*HAVE YOU EVER HAD MOOD SWINGS BEFORE EATING SMART?.
= MOST OF THE TIME I WAS MUDDLEHEADED. I  DIDN'T KNOW WHICH GOAL TO WORK ON FIRST OR HOW. THAT CAUSED ME TO BE DEPRESSED AND OUT OF CONTROL AT TIMES. I WOULD BE INTOLERANT OF  OTHERS AND OFTEN EXPLODED VERBALLY ON SOMEONE.  MY *SEROTONIN LEVEL WOULD BE OUT OF SYNC DUE TO MY EATING CHOICES. *(neurotransmitter chemical: a chemical derived from the amino acid tryptophan and widely
distributed in tissues. It acts as a neurotransmitter, constricts blood vessels at injury sites, and may affect emotional state)

*DO YOU STILL HAVE THEM, IF SO, AS OFTEN? = I AM TRULY AMAZED AS TO HOW I HAVE CHANGED AND AM ABLE TO THINK CLEARLY 95% OF THE TIME. THIS KEEPS ME POSITIVE. IT ALLOWS ME TO THINK POSITIVE,  AND COMPLETE MY GOALS ON TIME.

*HAS THIS SYSTEM GIVEN YOU ENTHUSIASM TO PROGRESS AND CHALLENGE YOUR ABILITIES FURTHER AHEAD IN BUSINESS, SPORTS, AND FAMILY VALUES, ETC.

= "WELL, FOR ME, MY NATURE IS TO DO THE BEST I CAN DO, AND THEN TRY TO DO EVEN BETTER. BY HAVING A CLEAR MIND I CAN PLAN AND ACT ON MY GOALS TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY IN A PRIORITIZED MANOR. NOW THAT IS WHAT PLEASES ME!"

*ARE YOU LESS STRESSED ON THIS PROGRAM, WHY?  = BY STICKING WITH MY EATING HABITS  (MY EAT SMART TM SYSTEM), MY BODY AND MIND ARE AT THEIR BEST ALLOWING ME TO PLAN AND ACCOMPLISH MY GOALS WHICH IN TURN PLEASES ME.
*ARE YOU ABLE TO COPE WITH ADVERSITY ON A MORE EVEN KEEL?
 =YES. WHEN ADVERSITY STRIKES, I SEEM TO REACT AUTOMATICALLY, SUBCONSCIOUSLY, AND WITHOUT HESITATION IN A POSITIVE WAY.
*DO YOU SLEEP BETTER.= YES, I SLEEP LIKE A
ROCK AND FEEL REFRESHED WHEN I WAKE UP, HOWEVER, MY BODY HAS LEARNED TO  ACCEPT LESS SLEEP DUE TO THE CONSTANT SURGE IN ENTHUSIASM AND ABSENCE OF DEPRESSION. I START OFF EACH DAY BY SAYING OUT LOUD TO A FRIEND, MY 1ST CLIENT, OR TO MYSELF
" TODAY IS THE BEST DAY OF THE REST OF MY LIFE!"  


Q.
  BEFORE THE EAT SMART TM SYSTEM, I, MARSHALL, WAS AT A CERTAIN LEVEL OF ACHIEVEMENT. WHAT I AM COMPARING AND WANT TO KNOW IS: AM I ABLE TO SUSTAIN MY ABILITY TO THINK MORE CLEARLY FOR LONGER PERIODS TIME NOW, AFTER EXPERIENCING THE EFFECTS THAT EATING SMART CAN PRODUCE?

A.  = BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN EATING SMART TM, THE ANSWER IS YES. FOR THE LAST 20 CONSECUTIVE YEARS I HAVE NOT HAD THOSE NEGATIVE SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH BAD EATING HABITS.  I NOW EXPERIENCE A QUALITY WAY OF LIFE DUE TO EATING SMART.  IT IS A SYSTEM AND A WAY OF LIFE AND I AM ON IT FOR A LIFETIME.  I CAN SEE WHERE I AM NOW, AND VISUALIZE WHERE I WILL BE.  MY MIND IS CLEAR AND WITH GOD’S HELP I AM ABLE TO MAKE GOALS REALISTIC, WRITTEN, ATTAINABLE, AND PRIORITIZE THEM SO THEY GET DONE.  NOW, THIS FUELS MY MOTIVATION AND THAT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD.  EVEN THOUGH I HAD A WINNING ATTITUDE BEFORE EATING SMART, I WOULD WORK HARD AND NOT PAY ATTENTION TO EATING RIGHT.  CONSEQUENTLY, I WAS OVERWEIGHT, SLUGGISH, MUDDLEHEADED, LETHARGIC, HAD HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, AND SO ON.  I WOULD GO ON A DIET, LOOSE WEIGHT AND GAIN IT BACK AGAIN.  SOMETIMES, FOR MONTHS ON END I WASN’T ABLE TO THINK CLEARLY.  CONSEQUENTLY, I WAS DEFINITELY NOT AT MY BEST. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD THE WINNING ATTITUDE, BUT EATING INCORRECTLY GOT IN THE WAY OF PROGRESS.

*WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THIS PROGRAM TO A FRIEND? HOW ABOUT A TEENAGER? IF SO WHY?
= YES, EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY TEENS. THEY LEARN QUICKLY AND ADVANCE AT A YOUNG AGE ENABLING SUCCESS
AND HEALTH BENEFITS EARLY ON. THIS GIVES THEM A STABLE FOUNDATION FOR A HEALTHIER AND MORE PRODUCTIVE LIFETIME. 
 *ARE YOU MORE PRODUCTIVE IN MANY AREAS OF YOUR LIFE LIKE BUSINESS, FAMILY, SPORTS, FINANCIAL, SPIRITUAL, SOCIAL, AND EDUCATIONAL. =YES, THROUGH PROPER GOAL SETTING TECHNIQUES I HAVE PRIORITIZED AND ACCOMPLISHED MY GOALS. AS A RESULT MY MIND IS NOW CLEAR AND I HAVE MORE FREE TIME TO DO WHAT I WANT.
 
*IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN A DIET? = YES, AND THE  RESULTS ARE PERMANENT TOO.THE EAT SMART SYSTEM
IS ALLOWING ME TO
ENJOY MY FAVORITE FOODS.
*DO YOU FEEL BETTER NOW THAN BEFORE BEING ON THE EAT SMART SYSTEM?  =YES

*ARE YOU LOSING MUSCLE AND FAT OR MUSCLE OR FAT ONLY?
.=  OVER THE YEARS I HAVE INCREASED MY MUSCLE MASS AND DECREASED MY BODY FAT.
MY BODY FAT IS BETWEEN 6-12%, AND I  HAVE BECOME STRONG FOR MY AGE AND SIZE.
 
*HOW IS YOUR ENERGY LEVEL? = AWESOME
 
 * IS THIS A PERMANENT WAY OF LIFE OR A TEMPORARY FIX? = ON OCCASION I DEVIATE AND USUALLY REGRET IT AFTERWARD, I FEEL BLESSED TO HAVE EXPERIENCED AND PERFECTED THE BETTER WAY. I HAVE THE DESIRE TO FEEL AND ACT MY BEST SO, I STAYED WITH IT FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS. BECAUSE OF THE EXCEPTIONAL RESULT OF ME FEELING SO GREAT, AND AS LONG AS MY DOCTOR SUPPORTS MY OVERALL HEALTH, AND I CONTINUE TO BECOME STRONG AND HAPPY, I WILL CONTINUE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.                             
 *WAS IT DIFFICULT TO LEARN THE SYSTEM?  = FOR ME IT WAS. IT SEEMED ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE . IT TOOK ME OVER 30 YEARS OF YO YO DIETING, FEELING DEPRESSED AND UNCOMFORTABLE WITH MY APPEARANCE, BEFORE I STARTED EXPERIMENTING WITH DIFFERENT PARTS OF DIFFERENT DIETS: DR. STILLMAN, DR. ATKINS, RICHARD SIMMONS, WEIGHT LOSS MEDICAL CENTERS,THE CARBOHYDRATE, THE LOW CALORIE, THE LOW FAT, AND MOST OF THE FAD DIETS. THEY ALL TOOK AWAY SOMETHING IMPORTANT FROM MY BEING. THEY WERE ALL TEMPORARY. THEN, IN 1990
I PUT TOGETHER A WAY FOR ME WHICH WORKED LIKE NO OTHER HAD IN THE PAST. I IMMEDIATELY STARTED TO FEEL THE MARVELOUS CHANGE IN THE EFFECTS OF THE CHANGE IN MY SEROTONIN. THIS WAS OVER 20 YEARS AGO AND THAT'S WHEN MY SYSTEM WAS CREATED BY ME. EAT SMARTTM  .

*OK, NOW THAT THE SYSTEM IS PERFECTED
AND PROVEN BY YOU AND OTHERS, HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE THE AVERAGE PERSON TO LEARN IT?
= I HAVE SHARED MY SYSTEM WITH HUNDREDS OF FRIENDS AND CLIENTS. MOST EVERYONE WHO HAS ENTHUSIASM AND A GOAL WILL BE UTILIZING IT EFFECTIVELY WITHIN 21 DAYS. I COACH, MOTIVATE, AND OVERSEE YOUR PROGRESS THE ENTIRE TIME. IT'S PAINLESS, EDUCATIONAL, FUN, REWARDING AND PERMANENT. THE BEST THING IS THAT YOU HAVE AN EXPERT TO GUIDE YOU. YOU WILL
PRACTICE IT SUBCONSCIOUSLY AND WITH IMMEDIATE RESULTS. SOON, IT  BECOMES A PERMANENT WAY OF LIFE.

 

*DO I HAVE TO WORK OUT OR STRENGTH TRAIN, LIFT WEIGHTS, RUN, OR EXERCISE TO GET THE RESULTS? = NO, HOWEVER, WORKING OUT WITH CARDIO MAKES THE HEART AND VITALS STRONGER. STRENGTH TRAINING INCREASES MUSCLE TONE AND MUCH MORE. I BELIEVE THAT 75% OF YOUR PROGRESS IS DUE TO EATING SMART TM, WHILE 25% IS DUE TO EXERCISE. DOING BOTH SIMULTANEOUSLY SPEEDS UP FAT LOSS, INCREASES MUSCLE MASS, AND HELPS YOU TO BE MORE YOUTHFUL IN THE YEARS AHEAD. 
* IT'S A MATTER OF PERSONAL CHOICE: DO YOU ENJOY THE FOOD YOU EAT?
 =YES, I CHOOSE THE FOODS I WANT TO EAT.
 
*DO YOU STILL HAVE SOME FORM OF ALCOHOL ON OCCASION?  =YES
*WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT THE RESULTS YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED. 
 = I FEEL
SELF CONFIDENCE AND PRIDE KNOWING THAT I AM BEING THE BEST THAT I CAN BE. KNOWING I WILL WAKE UP TOMORROW FEELING POSITIVE AND HEALTHY AND ABLE TO COPE WITH WHATEVER IS ON THE WAY, AND KNOWING THAT I AM IN CHARGE OF CREATING MY PATH.

*DO YOU NOW HAVE THE SYSTEM DOWN FOR YOUR FUTURE. 
= YES, I HAVE BEEN ON IT FOR
20 CONSECUTIVE YEARS AND I CAN TEACH IT WITH PERFECTION TO ANYONE WHO HAS A GOAL AND ENTHUSIASM. YOU CAN BECOME AN EXPERT LIKE ME IN 21 DAYS OR LESS. THE KEY IS TO BE GUIDED THROUGH THE FIRST FEW DAYS SO YOU DON'T GIVE UP. TAKING THE TIME TO DO IT THE RIGHT WAY IS THE POT OF GOLD AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW. IT'S LIKE HIRING SOMEONE TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH A DARK CAVE WITHOUT A FLASHLIGHT. SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN THERE BEFORE AND CAN GET YOU OUT BEFORE YOU RUN OUT OF FOOD AND WATER. IF YOU MAKE THE WRONG TURN YOU COULD GO AROUND IN CIRCLES PERMANENTLY AND WOULDN'T GET OUT.
 
*WOULD YOU GO BACK TO WHERE YOU WERE BEFORE YOU STARTED THE EAT SMART SYSTEM? =NOT A CHANCE.
*YOU SAID THAT YOU HAVE HELPED  HUNDREDS
OF MEN, WOMEN, AND TEENS CHANGE THEIR LIVES FOR THE BETTER. WHY DO YOU DO THIS?
= I ENJOY SEEING PEOPLE BECOME SATISFIED. IT GIVES ME A GREAT SENSE OF PRIDE SEEING PEOPLE GET WHAT THEY WANT KNOWING THAT I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRANSFORMATION THAT TOOK PLACE. IT REWARDS  ME KNOWING THAT IT TOOK ME YEARS OF STUDY, PRACTICE, AND IMPLEMENTATION
TO GET TO WHERE I CAN QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY HELP YOU BY GAINING YOUR TRUST AND HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR  DESIRED PHYSICAL AND MENTAL MAKEOVER.

A COMBINATION OF SUCCESS MOTIVATION INSTITUTE'S FORMAL TRAINING, A FIFTY ONE YEAR CAREER IN SALES AND MARKETING, PARENTS WHO DROVE ME TO PERFECTION, AND SURROUNDING MYSELF WITH HIGHLY INTELLIGENT FRIENDS AND ACQUAINTANCES, AND MY BELIEF IN GOD HAS LED ME DOWN THIS PATH.

Food Label Highlights U.S. Food and Drug Administration · 10903 New Hampshire Ave.
Silver Spring, MD 20993 · 1-888-INFO-FDA (1-888-463-6332)

Findings in regard to food labels include

  • More than half (54 percent) of consumers said they read a product's label the first time they buy the product. That's a 10 percent increase from 2002.
  • Among those who in 2008 reported they read the nutrition label the first time they buy a product
    • two-thirds use the label “often” to check how high or low a food is in calories and in substances such as salt, vitamins, and fat
    • 55 percent “often” use the label to get a general idea of the food's nutritional content
    • 46 percent “often” use the calorie information on the label. Thirty-four percent rarely or never use the calorie information
  • Thirty-eight percent of consumers said they use nutrient content claims (such as “low fat,” “high fiber,” and “cholesterol-free”) “often”; 34 percent answered “sometimes.”
  • When asked if they refer to the label claim of “0 grams of trans fat,” 31 percent said “often” and 36 percent said “sometimes.”

The survey found differing degrees of trust about claims found on food labels. For example, 41 percent of consumers believe that all or most of claims such as “low fat,” “high fiber,” or “cholesterol free” are accurate, while 56 percent believe that some or none of them are accurate.

Also, 64 percent of consumers reported seeing nutrition labeling on menus, napkins, or place mats in restaurants. About half of these consumers use this information often or sometimes.
