Marketing gurus know that if they label an item low-fat, consumers will trust this and assume, that they are eating healthy. Many of these low-fat foods have added sugar, additives and artificial sweeteners, which are often added to enhance the taste.
Read the labels, understand them and know exactly what you are buying. When an item is deemed low-fat it should contain 3g or less of fat per 100g. Eating healthy and losing weight doesn’t mean you have to head for the low-fat foods, foods that are full fat maybe more satisfying and leave you feeling fuller. Remember fat is needed for weight loss and the body - just ensure it is low in saturated fats and higher in mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fats.
