041 – Food Labels and Caffeine Effect on Weight Gain

This week we take a look at a couple of news stories in the headlines this past week.  Up first is a study involving food labeling, and whether there are more effective approaches to food labels that might help consumers make better and more consistent food choices.  And, we also examine a recent study published in the Journal of Functional Foods that looks at the effects of caffeine on a holiday-infused diet that is higher in fats and sugars.
