When I look at the back of a bagged or wrap food item to look at the calories, Ingredients.. Etc. I only look at the calories because I honestly don't know what all the other stuff means. I don't know what's good and what's bad for me. How do you know !? I need help!

If you don't know what an ingredient is, don't eat it. Cut out processed foods and eat as many fresh veggies and fruits. be sure to eat lots of greens like kale and spinach as well as berries(blueberries especially) and nuts(almonds, walnuts) and seeds(Chia seeds are amazing!). Cut out sugar and everything processed the best that you can. buy organic a much as you can or grow your own garden if you are truly dedicated.

Also realize calorie aren't bad, calories give you energy, you just need to get your calories from a healthy source.

Chances are if you don't know what the ingredients are that are listed then they are probably not good for you.

I suggest doing a bit of your own research, did u know there's more that 50 names for MSG? A famous one is Natural Flavors. Ingredients can be deceiving so if you don't know dont eat
