Restaurant and Frozen Meal Nutrition Labels Often Inaccurate

I always round up or add about 100 extra calories to my daily total to compensate for all the little snacks and extras I forgot to count during the day. Now, there is another reason to round up or add a bit extra to your daily total calorie count. It turns out that the food nutrition labels are often inaccurate. There are more calories than those the nutrition label states. Fast food meals are close to 20% off and frozen meals are close to 10% off. It is best to avoid these type of meals for your general health anyway, but if you do choose to eat them, be aware that you might want to add a few more calories to your daily total to compensate for these misleading labels.
