For someone who is watching their weight, I've become very consious of looking at nutritional labels. Now, I know the basic "look at how many calories there are" but what other things should you look at?
Do you look at nutrition/food labels?
What specifically? Calories, fat, sodium, ingredients? (Ie What are RED FLAG warning signs for you not to buy "something?)

I was looking at pickles today and I remember someone on LJ saying that they just ate them since they were so low in calories. (Well, 5 for the ones I saw, but then I looked at the sodium, and it was like 300? whatevers.) I ended up not buying them bc I wasn't sure if the sodium content overweighed the lack of calories...
