Lifestyle as Medicine Lecture with Jeff Novick, MS, RD – A Lesson in Label Reading

If you missed the June 15, 2022 Lifestyle as Medicine Lecture with Jeff Novick, MS, RDN, “A Lesson in Label Reading – How to Choose the Healthiest Foods“, watch the recording below. It’s a must see for learning how to read labels.

Are you sure the “healthy” food you are buying is actually healthy? How do you know? Do you look at the numbers? Do you look for certain claims such as healthy, natural, organic, unprocessed, or plant-based?

Most consumers say they read labels to select healthy foods and limit excess calories, fat, sugar, and salt. Yet, research shows that the majority of products we buy are ultra-processed and high in calories, fat, sugar, and salt. This includes many plant-based products. All of this represents a huge disconnect between what we think is healthy and what really is. Have you been fooled?

In this talk, we took a close look at the food label, learned how to identify what is most important, set some healthy guidelines, and learned a quick and easy system to evaluate products. This talk was fun and informative.

“Jeff Novick’s rendition of food labeling is unparalleled in its clarity and thoroughness. No one has a better insight into the folly of food advertising.”  –  T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D.
