Debunking foods with health halos | Herbalife Advice by Susan Bowerman
Don’t be misled by food labels that sound healthy. Learn how to read food labels and expose health halos.
There are a number of food labels that will confuse even the most educated healthy food shoppers. Certain foods have a healthy image or “health halo” because they’re labeled as fat-free, whole grain, gluten-free, low-fat or no sugar added but while the labels may sound good, they may be distracting you from the whole story.
Studies have shown that when people are offered foods in packaging that contain a vivid health halo descriptor, they will eat larger portions and take in more calories. So make sure to watch your portions when you eat healthy sounding foods.
Understand which food labels may not be as clear or helpful as you’d hope and steer away from unhealthy food that sounds too good to be true. Here are a few ways you can check food labels and expose health halos:
– If you pick up a food and it says no sugar added, check to see if the food is high in fat.
– If you pick up a food that says low-fat, it could have a lot of sugar.
– If you see a food that says made with whole grain, it may actually have very little.
