I've been trying r get into reading labels lately. & although I can read them..I don't quite understand them. Like ok. 60 grams of sugar in "X" item. I'm trying to determine what's a good daily intake or the "norm" so I can limit my intake or carbs & all that other stuff along the way learning what carbs are..lol

When I see saturated fat, fat from calories, total fat..my mind just goes blank lol

Would anyone happen to have a helpful link or chart to break all that down for someone such as myself who never cared about labels or eating healthy up until..recently -_-

Thanks for any info & your time in advanced..!

Protein and carb amounts should be related to body weight and activity level. For "sugars," over 50 grams or so for a meal can be bad, depending on the activity level just before or soon afterwards and how much protein, fat, and fiber are consumer with it. There is controversy about the healthfulness of saturated fats, though clearly extreme levels thereof should be avoided and, for example, the saturated from grass-fed cows is healtheir than the fat in typical beef. Dozens of grams of fat in one serving is never a good thing.
