Hidden Calories

first_imgHave you ever accepted that second slice of pie because it was “low carb” or “fat free”?Maybe you ate a whole sleeve of cookies, but weren’t that worried about it because they were labeled “organic.” This phenomenon, known as the “health halo,” occurs when we overestimate the healthiness of products because of a brand name, marketing claims or labels. Even though it sounds angelic, the health halo itself can actually be counterproductive.In a study conducted in New York state, everyday shoppers were given identical products to taste test. Nutritionally, the products were the same. The only difference was that one product was clearly labeled “organic.”The researchers found that most of the people thought the food with the organic label tasted better and was worth more money, according to the 2013 study published in the journal Food Quality and Preference. This study shows how packaging can influence us.The health halo changes our perception of quality and cost. Most importantly it can also cause us to overindulge without guilt.Often, we use the halo as our shield. We think, “Well this sandwich with bacon, guacamole and cheese is from a health food store, so I should be able to eat the whole thing, and eat the organic chips, too.”The health halo doesn’t just cover single products; it also extends to grocery stores or restaurants. Is Subway better for you than McDonald’s? Many people would say yes, but the real answer is that it depends on what you order.Researchers found that people perceived meals with identical calorie counts from Subway and McDonald’s to be very different. Not only did they underestimate the amount of calories they were consuming from the Subway sandwich, they also added on more calories from side items to the sandwich, according to a 2007 study published in the Journal of Consumer Research.The result was that they consumed more calories eating at Subway than when they ate at McDonald’s.So, how do we avoid the pitfalls of the health halo?The best thing we can do for ourselves is to ignore all the flashy packaging and claims on the item. Instead we need to find the nutrition information and use that as our guide.Remember, at least when it comes to weight management, it’s a balance of calories in versus calories out.Always read the nutrition facts label.Ask to see the nutrition information or look for the label on the package. The good news is that healthy foods can come from anywhere we choose to shop or eat.When we have all of the right information, we can make a healthy decision.Keep in mind that healthy eating is just one side of the equation. We also need to move more, because moving more means living more. For more information on making smarter food choices and increasing physical activity, visit walkgeorgia.org.last_img read more

Solskjaer ready for showdown

first_img Press Association Solskjaer’s team will head to the Stadium of Light with renewed hope of avoiding the drop after beating Southampton and drawing with Stoke. Sunderland, though, can reflect on a draw at Manchester City and a stunning 2-1 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their last two games, which underlines the size of Cardiff’s task. Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has billed next Sunday’s showdown against fellow Barclays Premier League relegation candidates Sunderland as “a proper cup final.” If Cardiff manage to retain top-flight status, they will owe goalkeeper David Marshall a huge debt. Scotland international Marshall, who has made more saves than any other Premier League keeper this season, was at his best again in Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Stoke, highlighted by a late point-blank stop from Potters substitute Oussama Assaidi. “We do keep him busy,” Solskjaer added. “(Stoke) was one of the less busy games he has had, and he showed the concentration levels by producing two fantastic saves.” Asked if he would be in Solskjaer’s team of the season, the manager added: “Yes. “I would pick Marshy if I could, every day of the week. In the league in his current form, yes (over any other goalkeeper in the league).” Stoke midfielder and former Cardiff player Peter Odemwingie had one chance spectacularly saved by Marshall, and he hopes the Bluebirds can pass their survival test during the next few weeks. “Their manager has said they need a miracle to stay up, and I really hope they get it,” Odemwingie said. “They have quality, they need a bit of luck like everyone does, and then maybe that miracle can happen and Cardiff can get the results they need. “I watched a couple of their games over the last few months and I just thought they were a bit unlucky, especially away at Spurs and Everton. “If they can play like that again, they can probably get the points needed.” And Stoke boss Mark Hughes said of his fellow former Manchester United star Solskjaer: “The Premier League is not easy, it’s unrelenting, you have to stick to your principles and what you believe in. “I am sure that’s what Ole is doing, and credit to him. He has been exposed to the Premier League as a manager. He understands it completely as a player, given the strength of his career, but management is a little different, as I am sure he will say. “The first season in the Premier League is difficult for anyone, irrespective of your playing background. If you haven’t experienced it before it’s tough going. “But that is the job we’ve got, and you make sure if you have an opportunity then you do your best, as Ole is doing.” Cardiff finish the season at home to Chelsea on May 11, but their Premier League fate is likely to be decided by successive games in the north-east – Sunderland in seven days’ time, then Newcastle a week later. “It is three weeks until Chelsea, and a lot can happen by then,” Solskjaer said. “They could win the league, they could be in the Champions League final or they could be in Brazil in some of their heads at the World Cup. You never know. “For us, we need these points more than some of these teams. Next weekend it is a proper cup final. “If you talk about league games that mean the same for both teams, then that is us and Sunderland. Next weekend will be the same mental test for both. “It is a massive game for us, and we will prepare as if it is the last game we will ever play. “I think we will probably have to have five more (points) to give us a chance. I don’t think 34 points will be enough. 35 might be enough, and 36 I think will be enough. “The players have come through some adversity. As a group, they are all fighting for their lives as Premier League players. They all want it, and every one of them is chipping in.” last_img read more
