Supermarket shelves are crammed with products that promise to lower this and reduce that, and we're bombarded in every aisle with confusing labels, promises, and claims.
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) December 31, 2008
People hoping to eat healthy, lose weight, and get fit in the New Year are likely to find themselves scratching their heads in the grocery store aisles. With so many products (over 40,000 thousand in most stores), it can be downright impossible to determine which foods are not only the healthiest, but also worth their price tag. The popular new eBook, "The Grocery Cart Makeover" by registered dietitian Heather K. Jones (http://www.grocerycartmakeover.com), is packed with more of everything health-conscious consumers need for smart and healthy grocery shopping. More answers, more understanding, and more savings, so they can shop better than they've ever shopped before.
Heather spent over seven years working with the acclaimed Nutrition Action Healthletter -- the nation's largest circulation health newsletter, published by the Center for Science in the Public Interest -- conducting grocery-store research to help consumers make wiser choices at the supermarket.
"In recent years a simple trip to the grocery store has turned into a complicated and expensive ordeal," says Jones. "Supermarket shelves are crammed with products that promise to lower this and reduce that, and we're bombarded in every aisle with confusing labels, promises, and claims."
