Should you turn the package open if you eat something and look at the nutrition facts first? The calories listed on food packages, along with the amount of fats , sugars and protein contained in the food you 're about to consume will help you prepare your meals for the day and help you achieve your nutritional goals.
But quantities of calories, fat , sugar, and protein tell you just a part of the story. The serving size listed on the facts regarding nutrition tells you the rest.
