Diets and misleading advertizing…

Well, I guess all advertizing is misleading to some extent but that’s a topic for another day perhaps. No, this relates to a pot of Greek yoghurt my wife bought. This is the item in question:

YoplaitYogourt

Notice how it says 100 Calories in BIG letters so you think, wow, only 100 calories but if you look closer you will see that underneath that it say “per 3/4 cup serving” and the same comment is under the WeightWatcher’s endorsement to the side. What is interesting though is that if you look on the back it says “Serving Size 1 cup”.

So basically, that big 100 calories claim is a load of BS since even the manufacturer is saying (on the back) that a serving is one cup, not three quarters of one cup!

Anyway, I’ve switched from the high sugar content Activia to plain nonfat, Chobani Greek yogurt. Mix in a little fruit, throw it in the blender and that’s breakfast.
