    Oh yeah, I'm a total health nut. I do have my guilty pleasures, of course, I don't completely deny myself.

    But yeah, I read the labels on everything.

    Since I have been diagnosed as pre-diabetic (blood sugar is high and diabetes runs in the family) I have stayed away from sugars, starches, and the like and have gotten on the salad/greens band wagon. Lots of chicken and turkey now and an occassional steak or hamburger (no bun). Wheat and rye breads now instead of white. Lots of bran as well.
    I feel better, have lost 20 pounds and I expect my blood sugar to be down when I go get my blood test later this month.

    Not in my foods.

    I don't have hydrogenated fats or any HFCS, just don't like them. But I don't eat healthily. Skipped breakfast this morning and had a cheese and ham toasted panini for dinner, for tea I've got 2 small cheese & tomato pizzas. Yet I had a blood test recently and according to the results I have a very healthy diet.

    And I eat a lot of biscuits. Mostly orange flavoured Penguin-clones from Asda.

    Yes and no.

    We are going more organic (always for milk and eggs), and we read the ingredients, but don't necessarily eat the healthiest types of foods all the time. We do watch the portions though.

    The reason, i ask is, i have started to read all the ingredients labels
    and i am very conscious of what i put in my body.

    I tend to feel alot better, when i am not putting junk food in my body.

    I read a label the other day and found what is so far my favorite ingredient: "dried cane juice". How many people do they fool with that one?

    If it's something I've never bought before, such as a new brand of muesli (which I'll then compare to my old one, pack of "gourmet" sausages from the supermarket (must have 80-85% meat for me to buy it, and I RARELY cook with meat), or a new environmentally friendly laundry detergent, I'll read the labels to see how it compares to what I'm familiar with. After that, I know which to choose and never read the label of that item again, as I know what I'll get next time.
