What?! The FDA allows nutrition labels to be off by as much as 20%. That can really add up. And as for that first link you posted ParadiseFalls, I cannot believe how off so many of the actual versus reported calories are. I understand that even if I don't know the exact number of calories it can serve as a guide, but still. This might help explain why my weight loss in the past when I have counted calories never made sense. I used a formula like: weight lost = BMI + calories burned in exercise - calories eaten. The amount of weight I should lose is never how I much I actually lose... I wonder if this is one reason why.
