Daily Caloric Need Test-BMR

-Follow directions on sheet

SERVING SIZES
SO ROUGHLY ON A LABEL:
- Look at CALORIES if you want to LOSE WEIGHT
(and servings)

- Look at FAT(total, trans and saturated) if you want to lose body fat/ get 6-pack abs or if you have heart/medical problems

-look at PROTEIN if you want to build muscle
IS YOUR PRODUCT HEALTHY ENOUGH TO BE IN THE SCHOOL VENDING MACHINE:
 
YES ________ NO___________

Can you
estimate
the % of
fat here?

In a minute, each person will choose a product and
fill in a worksheet. Here is what you’ll be looking at:

see examples
on next slides…

How companies might deceive you on a food label:




Unrealistic serving size - chips

Servings per container - muffin, cheetos

Packaging - pop tart

listing an amount and then having a “ * ”
- Mac n’ Cheese


To be in our
vending
machine at
school it has
to be less than:

< 35% (calories from) fat
+
< 35% (weight from) sugar
(or no more than 15 grams)

IS THIS PRODUCT HEALTHY ENOUGH TO BE IN OUR VENDING MACHINES?

#5

Servings Size: 6 chips
Servings per Container: 20
Calories: 130 (x20)
Total Fat: 6 grams (x20)

Label Deception-Serving Size:

Good fat example:
Total fat is 16
Sat. fat is 1

BUT, if you want to
lose weight-
count calories:
6 servings per
container:
calories 170 x 6 =
____________ !!!!


Here is a "generic" way to look at the label information:

-look at calories if you want
to lose weight (and servings!)

-look at fat (total and saturated) if you want
to lose body fat/get 6-pack abs! (or if you have heart/ medical problems

-look at protein if you want
to build muscle
