Hey, did you know good nutritional information isn't on the darkside of the moon?
My grandmother gave me a very old medical book (approx. 100 years old) and one of the chapters gives the cure for obesity. You may be surprised to know that the cure is: balanced diet and exercise. Believe it or not, through all the fads, that is still the best treatment.
Sometimes, we feel like we should try this "balanced diet" thing. But does the info on the side of the package really tell us all we need to know? What about things without packaging, like fruits and vegetables and raw meats? I found this website that gives a nice breakdown of food nutrients and has several tools to help you make sure you are getting what you need. In addition to the "raw" foods, it also has many popular brand name foods which contain the ingredient you search for. I haven't checked that part out yet. There seems to be several levels to check out here...including good foods to "match".
