Serving Size: The amount of food that equals one serving is written in cups or ounces (oz) and also in metric, such as grams (g) or milliliters (mL). Calories: For some foods, the label will list the calories in the food and add the calories in another food usually eaten with it.
Calories From Fat: To get the percent of calories that are from fat, divide the calories from fat by total calories per serving and multiply by 100. Total Fat: Any food that has 10 grams of fat or more (per serving) should be avoided or eaten in small amounts.
Cholesterol: The amount of cholesterol you eat and drink each day should be less than 300 milligrams (mg).
Total Carbohydrate: While the daily value for carbohydrates is 300 grams, it is okay to exceed this limit. Sugars: Like dietary fiber, sugars are another type of carbohydrate in food and this amount is part of total carbohydrates. Vitamins and Minerals: The percentage-based numbers help you decide which foods or drinks are the best sources of nutrients, such as calcium, fiber, vitamin A or Vitamin C.

In the doctor’s office, I saw the cover article of a recent issue of Time magazine was Getting Real About the High Price of Cheap Food. For all the grumbling you do about your weekly grocery bill, the fact is you’ve never had it so good, at least in terms of what you pay for every calorie you eat. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that a dollar could buy 1,200 calories of potato chips or 875 calories of soda but just 250 calories of vegetables or 170 calories of fresh fruit. Organic food continues to cost on average several times more than its conventional counterparts, and no one goes to farmers’ markets for bargains.
Personally, I think we should start with finding the foods that provide the best balance between cost and nutrition. Anyway, the problem with this analysis is that it’s impossible to eat all your calories of vegetables. Anyway, what you are able to buy with $1 is the number of calories… not the number of fruits, vegetable, sodas, chips in the picture. So, in very simple terms, $1 buys you 170 calories of fruit not 3 oranges, 2 apples and 1 pear. Shopping the perimeter of the grocery store (getting the produce, fresh dairy and all the refrigerated items) is the easiest way to buy healthy stuff.
AS i learned or being brainwashed by commercial, that organic are free from pesticides, chemicals and so and so forth. Maybe a government subsidy for organic farming would encourage smaller family farms to go organic and develop sustainable farming methods. I continue to argue for an increased high fructose corn syrup tax, a fast food tax, double the tobacco excise tax, and alcohol tax. I would still find it hard to beleive that one week’s worth of frech vegetables, meat and so on would be more expensive than eating fast food and other processed foods for a week. And even if it were true, as much as I like to save, I would never ever buy junk food if it were found to be cheaper. Also, eating packaged food (pasta, canned foods, even bread), costs more than just buying vegies and raw ingredients. I am a firm believer that organic food (non-GMO, whole foods, low-hybridized, etc.) provides more nutrition that conventional food and the long-term benefits will more than pay for themselves through a healthier life. Many people can afford to spend a little more to eat healthier, especially as the cost of food has dropped. Just because you believe it doesn’t make it true, There is no scientific evidence that Organic food is any more nutritious than regular, non-organic food.
This is not an option for everyone, but if you are in the right location, but I tend to find that fruits and veggies are way cheaper in Asian markets than in my local grocery store. The only thing that’s wrong with your statement, Alan, is that almost everything is hybridized.
If livestock are involved, they must be reared without the routine use of antibiotics and without the use of growth hormones, and generally fed a healthy diet.


So far no scientific evidence supports the idea of organic fruit, vegetables and meat are more nutritious than other food.
Alan, you can obviously choose to embrace whatever beliefs you want, but where’s the evidence? Nobody in the entire world is going to dispute that vegetables are better for you than processed foodstuffs. I know you think that “agribusiness” is a big evil entity, but who do you think grows most of the organic food in America (or in China, since a large percentage of organic food is grown in China)? As a health care provider I see people every day who are in the process of destroying their health because of what (and how much) they eat. Worry less about doctor bills, than what is is like to have your quality of life destroyed by poor health. The nutiritional profile of organic food may not be any different from non-organic, but the methods of production make a huge difference. If all the externalities were priced in to the cost of processed foods and large-scale agriculture, I think the cost comparison would change dramatically.
What’s the cost of restoring a depleted aquifer, drained by irrigating huge monocultural fields? What’s the cost of restoring a depleted aquifer, drained by irrigating huge monocultural fields? So let me get this straight…you’re claiming that organic produce precludes using irrigation or damming rivers or large farms?
How much would it cost to restore all the topsoil, sucked of all its nutrients and turned to blowing dust or polluted with salts by repeated re-use of irrigation water? What’s the sum total of environmental damage caused by soaking petroleum-based pesticides and fertilizers?
It would go a long way to lowering the cost of healthcare in the US if the government stopped subsidizing corn. Lastly it is true that science has formulated modern processed foods to push all the buttons evolution has given us over thousands of years, but there is still flexibility there. Scientist and humanitarian Norman Borlaug, father of the Green Revolution, saved over a billion people from starvation over his lifetime. It is education and lifestyle choices that will ultimately change people’s health outcomes. I read the Omnivore’s Dilemma and started to look at how pervasive corn is in our ‘natural’ bath and body products. People have to make choices as to what they buy, as that will drive the market, their health and the planet’s overall sustainability.
A recent Time article also noted that best way to lose weight was to modify your diet–that means cutting down on the carbs and sugars. If you are reading this on any other blog than XL Health Blog or via my RSS Feed, it is stolen content without credit. A few serving size hints: 1,000 milligrams (mg) = 1 gram (g), 1 ounce (oz) = 28 grams, and 1 fluid ounce (fl oz) = 30 milliliters (mL). Because we typically eat more than one serving, consider the servings per container when planning meals or snacks. For example, total calories for cereal will be for just the cereal as well as for the cereal with milk.
This number is an estimate of how the food meets the daily requirement for each nutrient based on a 2,000 calorie diet. The average person eats far more than the recommended amount, so try not to consume more than 4,000 mg per day. A good source of fiber has 2.5 to 5 grams of fiber per serving and a high-fiber food will have at least 5 grams per serving.
By understanding the information a food label provides, you can evaluate the product based on your nutritional needs.

According to the USDA, Americans spend less than 10% of their incomes on food, down from 18% in 1966.


With the backing of the government, farmers are producing more calories — some 500 more per person per day since the 1970s — but too many are unhealthy calories.
I am sure you can get a lot more potato chips than the handful shown in the picture with one dollar! Agribusiness spends a lot of money convincing people that perfectly-formed apples and fluffy heads of lettuce are normal.
Tomatoes happen to be my favorite food, and I doubt I’d find tomatoes for 39 cents a pound anywhere else, like I did in Chinatown this week.
While it might be nice to be organic all the time, I don’t think many people can afford it.
Under organic production, the use of conventional non-organic pesticides, insecticides and herbicides is greatly restricted and saved as a last resort. The main reason or benefit of choosing organic food over conventional food is that it contains less esticides, insecticides ,herbicides and growth hormones in the food we consume, which will defenitely benefit us in the long-run. Nobody in the entire world is going to dispute that FRESH vegetables generally taste better than unripe, non-fresh vegetables.
Makes me want to go out and join one of those veggie co-ops to get a basket a week like you. Every diet should consist of the correct amounts of fat, protein and carbs (fruits and veggies fit in the carb category).
There is an unknown quantity of Sugar in this food and an unknown quantity of Fiber (it was not provided).
The following information may help you make sense of food labels so that it's easier to make healthy choices. General Disclaimer: The Body is designed for educational purposes only and is not engaged in rendering medical advice or professional services. Once you factor in crop subsidies, ecological damage and what we pay in health-care bills after our fatty, sugary diet makes us sick, conventionally produced food looks a lot pricier. Based on what I’ve seen on the nutrition labels, brown rice only has 1 gram of fiber per serving compared to 0 gram for white rice. So, the next question, by purchasing & eating these organic food, can we really live healthier and longer?
In an ideal world, I’d like to always buy organic, but as its not really feasible budget wise, I figure in saving money by going to Chinatown, I have the extra money to splurge on organic food when I can. It also helps me feel a lot better about our enormous food budget when compared to other families.
In this case, Calories from Fat = 8, Calories from Protein = 5, and Calories from Carbohydrate = 18.
In this case Saturated Fat is unknown, Trans Fat is unknown, and there are 0.94 grams left over. The information provided through The Body should not be used for diagnosing or treating a health problem or a disease. Indeed research on the health benefits of vegetables shows that you get the benefits by *adding* vegetables to your diet, not necessarily because you eat 0 calories from fat. Anyone who has sampled fruit off a wild tree or grown their own vegetables know that nature is not perfect. Again, not the ideal, but a compromise for someone who is trying to be healthy on a budget. What’s the sum total of environmental damage caused by soaking petroleum-based pesticides and fertilizers?
There’s much more difference between whole wheat vs white bread so to me it makes more sense to spend extra on whole wheat bread rather than brown rice. There’s another farmers market, however, that I go to because it does have good deals. When we eat a cheeseburger, a Chicken McNugget, or drink soda, we’re eating the corn that grows on vast, monocrop fields in Midwestern states like Iowa.
