If you're on the reversal diet, the main thing is to be sure the food (or the total of the meal) is 10% calories from fat or less.

Unfortunately, some nutrition labels are not accurate. Common sense examination of the list of ingredients can help. It's important to see where the oil is in the list of ingredients. If it's in the first half of the list, you can usually assume that the product is much more than 10% fat.

Some prepared products can give a false indication because they contain large amounts of sugars (or other sweeteners), raising the calorie count while still having more oil than is healthful.
