    The danger of trans fat has just been brought to my attention today..

    In doing some reading on wikipedia, it seems that with foods containing less than 0.5g trans fats per serving, they can label their products 0g of trans-fat on the nutritional facts!

    How can I determine if foods I am buying are trans-fat free if I cannot rely on the nutritional facts chart :greddy:

    How can you recommend not eating processed shit? 90% of food in the grocery store in processed.

    So never eat tortillas? OK! Go lift some weights, make your penis smaller and gtfo of my thread ;)

    Try and eat on the outer edge of grocery stores (meat, poultry, veggies/fruit, diary). Foods in the middle are generally processed (boxed, canned and frozen).

    Do you eat anything with the beef? or do you just eat it straight lol

    ITT I did not ask for food recommendations, I simply asked if there was another way to tell if there are trans fats in foods without using the nutritional facts.

    So far I have got only one answer to my question by Voltekker, regarding the ingredients. Maybe those protein shades are getting to your heads :rofl:

    Anyways, to get this thread back on track..

    Voltekker, are their any other words commonly used other than hydrogenated vegetable oil? Should I just look out for the entire word hydrogenated altogether? I looked at some Mission tortilla's I use daily, although they even go as far to advertise "No Trans-Fat (per serving)", their ingredients are riddled with the word hydrogenated, but no vegetable oils

    I grill it. With proper cuts of meat and grilling tech you don't need anything else.


    You're question was dumb which is why I offered alternatives. 99% of packaged food you find in the store has trans fat in it.

    Even if there is no trans fat, doesn't mean that it's good for you.

    That is per serving idiot, with a .5 grams of trans-fat per serving according to the FDA which is like a cup of cereal, you would be eating a ton of trans fat.

    Most of you I can tell do not understand the serious harmful effects of trans fat.

    I didn't really mean to get off on the wrong foot with most of you. But for some of you having 5k+ posts, you guys are kind of posting like noobs.

    Its cool if you are like, fuck trans fat, or fuck nutritional facts, but to go and flame this thread with garbage is kind of stupid imo, just leave the thread and go read on something else?
