Newsflash people don’t read, except you since you are reading. I am writing this for someone to read right? A new study found that dieters are more likely than non-dieters to be misled by food names. Apparently, “fruit chews” are healthier than anything labeled “candy chews,” and ate more the candy when it was called fruit chews.
University of South Carolina researchers found it interesting that dieters fell into these naming traps more than those who don’t really care about what they eat. The study shows that dieters base their food decisions on the name of the food item instead of the ingredients of the item. As a result, they may eat more than what their dieting goals prescribe.
Do you read your food labels to see what the actual ingredients are? I think the key message here is just having a white check doesn't mean it is good for you.
