Understanding food labels
Hello, I am a 22 year old, 180 pound male.
Trying to find help to understand some things.
I burn about 2300, or so, calories daily.
I want to have a lifestyle change.
I know saturated fat is what I really must stay away from.
But, I heard that Monosaturated fat is an easier type to burn away.
Is that true?
Also, I want to know, out of each thing on the nutrition label, what I should keep high, and what I should keep low.
I really don't know much about it.
But I try to stay away from pre-cooked, pre-packaged foods.
But, please, if you can help me, I would greatly appreciate it!
Also, on the subject of sodium, how hard is it to wash the salt out of my body? (Or how long does it take for it to leave the body?)
