I’ve been looking at nutrition information numbers at various restaurants and seeing the calories, cholesterol, and eye-popping amounts of salt used in foods.
I didn’t realize that the ‘veggie’ type stuff can really pack a whallop – calories and especially salt for buns, cheese, ketchup, and pickles
But what does it all mean? Is 1000 calories for meal high, low, or just right? What about more calories? Less?
Numbers do not mean anything unless they have context.
If found this nifty website http://www.hpathy.com/healthtools/calories-need.asp which tells you how many calories you need, depending on your specific physical attributes and lifestyle, to maintain, lose, or gain weight.
Very good information to have, and it provides meaningful context to those food numbers. Now, I’m off to Wendy’s – hold the cheese and fries. And I’ll be working out more too!
