One thought on “New Food Labels”

  1. It’s an interesting idea, but I wonder if it would be too general to be actually helpful, given how widely people differ in how strenuously they exercise. Like how the current calorie percentages are confusing because people need different amounts of calories based on body type and exercise amounts.
