On your food labels, you’ll see nutrition facts. These aren’t really facts, though—they’re only guesses. Today I want to help you better understand these “nutrition guesses.”

A few definitions you need to know:
• RDAs (recommended dietary allowance):
This is how much of a certain nutrient you need based on your age, sex, or if you’re pregnant or lactating.

• AI (adequate intake):
This is how much of a certain nutrient you need to prevent an obvious deficiency.

• RDIs (recommended daily intake):
A simplified version by the FDA that's an estimate of nutrient needs based on a 2000-calorie diet regardless of age, sex, etc.

• %DV (percent of daily value):
This gives you a percent of a given nutrient as it relates to RDIs.

The problem is that they don’t factor in important variables when it comes to nutrition facts. People need different amounts of certain nutrients depending on their age, sex, activity level, or special conditions.

Other big problems with nutrition facts:
1. Possible conflicts of interest in the source information.

2. The amounts are related to preventing a deficiency and not achieving optimal health.

3. Some recommendations are too high.

Getting plenty of the right nutrients is crucial to supporting a healthy body. So, here’s what you need to do:
1. Eat nutrient-dense foods
2. Consume both animal products and plants
3. Consider the taste and smell of your produce to tell if it's nutrient dense

Using a Brix test is a great way to help you choose nutrient-dense foods. Nutrient-dense foods come from healthy soil. If you have a home garden, you can use a tool called a Microbiometer to do an at-home test on your soil. If you don’t have a farm or garden, I suggest getting your food from trusted farmer’s market vendors.

Watch to the end of this video for an interesting interview related to this subject and the Microbiometer.
