  1. broiled top round beef (38%); fried chicken (50%) [they are both loaded with fat]
  2. rice (0.8%); leanest beef (29%)
  3. spaghetti with tomato sauce (6%); with meat sauce (35%)
  4. bread (16%); cheddar cheese (74%)
  5. jelly beans (0.8%); ice cream ((48%)
  6. bagel (8%); doughnut (50%)
  7. baked potato (1%); French fries (47%)                

Did you get them all correct? Congratulations! You know all the answers… so now… it’s only a matter of choosing to eat according to what you know.

 

BTW, I am NOT advocating that you include jelly beans in your diet… they are loaded with a huge amount of sugar… and that’s not so good. J

 

Use your knowledge and…
