Real talk: Who else is confused about what to buy at the grocery store? With so many different labels found on food packages, from grass-fed, organic and free-range, to low-fat, high-protein and gluten-free, grocery shopping can be so overwhelming.

What do these labels mean? Which labels should we be looking for? Which labels matter and which ones don’t? Navigating these labels makes figuring out what to buy at the grocery store so confusing.

Food marketers have done an amazing job trying to trick us into believing their products are healthier for you than they actually are by using fancy buzzwords like “low-fat”. Unfortunately, most of us fall for it!

I'll let you in on a few little secrets these food marketers don’t want you to know: Low-fat isn’t a label you should look for, high-protein doesn’t automatically mean it’s healthy, and you don’t have to eat organic to see results. Mind blowing, right?
