Food label improved but it's far from enough.

Proposed changes to nutrition facts, naturopathic doctor Michigan

The FDA plans to update the current food label to make it easier to read with special attention paid to total calories and a new line called added sugar. They also hope to change the serving size to reflect how much people are really eating. This is a positive step towards a better label. The order of macronutrients; fats, carbohydrates, and proteins are in that order because fats are considered the largest health risk followed by carbohydrates and proteins. I would put carbohydrates above fats, keep the added sugar label, and add a new line that tells you the glycemic load. The current proposed changes will take years to take place. Athough I wish the FDA would have done more, some progress is better than no progress.
