Fat Free or Not Fat Free ?!?!?!
Friday, April 15, 2011
Everyone usually says that fat-free is the way to go when dieting. Up until last week I was one of them until a program I was watching chnged my mind.
I happened to catch a show with Dr. Oz on tv last week and the topics he was discussing really caught my attention. One of them dealt with fat-free foods on the market and how they really affect us.
First of all, I read the nutrition labels on everything I buy because of my high blood pressure. I know to check the sodium levels but then I found out that so-called fat-free foods do us more harm than good.
Did you know that our bodies need a certain amount of fats to maintain good health? I sure didn't! Dr. Oz pointed out that just ecause a food is labeled "fat-free" doesn't mean its good for us. Most of the fat-free foods on the market do us more harm than good!!
I really plan to do more research on this subject and will let you know what I found out - especially the fats that our bodies need to maintain good health and what to look for on nutrition labels in the grocery store!!
