Myth: Food labeling doesn't lie.

False.

Carilion Clinic,  Doctor Alicia Hollis explains, "We just have to be really careful and read the back of the label to see how many calories and sugars these things have, especially some of these smoothies and health smoothies that they market."

She says, it is important to check serving size and sugar.  For instance, 3 grams of sugar is the equivalent of a teaspoon.
