Dr. Mark Hyman takes a few minutes to reveal what’s really included on packaged food labels. In general, when reading a food label, he recommends that if you can’t pronounce it or if it has more than 5 ingredients, then put it down. Additionally, he reveals other tricks food marketers use to keep consumers eating more. Instead, eat whole foods without labels, and if you must, read the labels and know what to avoid!

I have always been a proponent of whole grain cereals, such as Kashi, etc. What is an acceptable level of grams of sugar per serving? I try to buy whole grain cereals with less than 10 gms/serving. Also...what about protein bars. I cannot eat sugar substitutes as they upset my GI system tremendously, including stevia. I have bought some Luna bars. any thoughts?

Something many think about but haven't heard anyhone talk about it. When do my intestines get used to the large amount of fiber I'm consuming, without surprising me at an inappropriate time? I'm afraid to eat more than 4 servings of fiber wihtout sticking close to home! Any thougnts?

Love the recipes for the 2-week plan. There are only about two days worth, though. I'd love to get the recipes for the whole two weeks. Will you be posting those?

I'm not going to eat the yummy beans/lentils I love. Tooooo much gas...shopping...not possible when I eat them. So...I will be eating lean meat, veggies and salads.
