FitFam! A client recently sent me the label to Keto bread they were eating daily. It’s a good lesson on why processed food labels lie to you.
Again, the label below is “Keto Bread”
It says 60 calories for 1 slice.
Well let’s see:
Fat has 9 calories per gram
Protein has 4 calories per gram
Carbs have 4 calories per gram
Total = 78 calories
Food companies are smart and they lie to you. In fact, the FDA allows them to be off by 10-15% on their calorie estimation.
That means if you eat a lot processed foods (anything with a label), then you might be eating 10-15% more calories than you think.
That’s why cooking foods in their natural state are always the best solution for fat loss.
– lean meats
– fruit and veggies
– starchy carbs
– healthy fats
– herbs and spices
Make your own food and save yourself calories!
