The phrase "don't judge a book by its cover" works when grocery shopping, too. We've all seen those food packages, decked out in crazy fonts and bright colors, proclaiming that what's inside is super "healthy" and hearty "fuel" to keep your body going. But is that really the case when the product is coated in chocolate? Celebrity trainer Jay Cardiello says that, sometimes, food labels lie!
