Today and tomorrow we’ll look at some of the nutrition information on a food label so we can help ourselves make healthier decisions.
The 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that Americans consume less than 2,300 mg of Sodium per day. But other organizations have urged the government’s recommendation to be lowered to 1,500 mg. This is about 2/3 teaspoon of salt! Over 70% of our salt intake comes from food eaten away from home (processed or prepared foods from the grocery store, or food from restaurants).
Added Sugar is hidden on food labels in plain sight – maltose, agave nectar, corn syrup, just to name a few. Here is a list of 61 names for sugar hiding in your ingredient list. For a diet of 2,000 calories per day, you should have less than 50g of added sugar, but the American Heart Association recommends closer to 25-36 g per day.
Track the amount of added sugar and sodium you’re getting in your diet today. How does your snapshot measure up to the recommended guidelines?

Each round should be close to as fast as possible. You should have about 60-90 seconds rest each interval.
If you can’t keep up with the E5MOM interval at the weight you started with, sit out one round as a penalty for hubris.
Keep your ego in check if you want to make progress.
