Food Lie #6-You ate it because it gives you extra nutrients.

Every food seems to be fortified these days. Even if it has extra calcium, additional B vitamins or added fiber, it’s still not reason enough to eat it, After all, cookies with added calcium are still cookies! Don’t justify eating the chips because the label claims they have added fiber.

Solution: Get your nutrients from your food. If you want a small indulgence, choose it because its an indulgence and not because it’s providing you with nutrients.
