The Low Fat Marketing
Eating a low fat diet can help you lose weight вЂ“ but thatвЂ™s
just half the story. Most people trying to lower their fat intake
go to the store looking for products whose labels show low fat
or no fat. Pasta, for example reads вЂњ0 fat gramsвЂќ.
There are fat free chips, fat free cookies, fat free ice cream
and the list goes on and on. LetвЂ™s face it вЂ“ sales
of no fat foods have вЂњskyrocketedвЂќ over the last 20
years and so has the number of Americans who are overweight.
The problem is that most fat free, or low fat foods are very high
in carbohydrates and also very low in fiber. Fiber really means
fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, and berries. The acid in your
stomach will not dissolve these natural fibers, so eating them
fills you up faster and keeps you full longer. But eating low fat
foods like, cakes, cookies, and chips, that are also low in fiber
means you have to eat more to feel full. As you eat these foods
the acid in your stomach begins to dissolve the foods and digest
them very quickly вЂ“ itвЂ™s like trying to fill up a sink
that has no stopper. Eventually you can get the sink to fill up
– but it takes a lot more water to do it. The result is that you
eat more, you take in more calories than you need and your body
stores the extra carbohydrates and calories as fat.
Keep reading labels, but choose foods that have more fiber grams
than fat grams. You will quickly discover many delicious foods
that are far healthier than any of the low fat or no fat foods вЂ“ and
youвЂ™ll see your body respond the way you want it to.
