Learn to choose products :
Select foods carefully. Check the expiration date. Always start with non-perishable products (such as canned goods, cereals, etc.) and finish with frozen and fresh products.
Learn to read nutritional values
Reading food labels is not easy : there is often too much information.
However, all the ingredients of a product are mentioned in decreasing order of importance (that is to say that the first component will be the one which will be present in greater quantity).
If you need to compare 2 products : take the one with the fewest calories (and be careful to check that the nutritional values are per 100 g of product).
