In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I do recall the article and I also think comes right down to making informed and good decisions as to what works for you. Label reading is a key to many of the light & FF foods.

I think it comes down to people using their own good common sense.

What an interesting article. I like how the insurance company tries to get out of it by blaming it on another group for promoting it. Sounds like some politicians

Yes, a good article... some companies seem to decide what is 'healthy' according to what is bringing them money at the time!!

Good article. People should be more aware of the limitations of so called "Light" or"Healthy" labeled foods in the processed foods sections of the supermarket. It is better to stick to the outer rims of those stores, where you find fresh fruits, vegetables and meats. But - most of us do occasionally indulge in prepared dressings, soups, lunch meats, and even ice cream treats. I cannot face a tuna sandwich without a dab of mayo, and both Best Foods and Kraft's lighter version of olive oil mayonaise taste just as good as the heftier old fashioned kind, with healthier oil and less calories. That weight watcher's ice cream bar occasionally keeps my dh from stocking our freezer with gallon buckets of the stuff, from which he would dip a huge bowlful nightly. That lighter lunchmeat beats the heck out of thick sliced bologna, my dh's former choice. I still have little time to cook at lunch, tho am trying to "plan-over" remnants from dinner's entrees for that purpose more. There is some sense in making these relatively painless changes as we try to retrain ourselves to cook more at home, using less salt and no sugar.

Sorry, I was told that I couldn't post the full article as it was a no-no. I don't have the link anymore so I'll just take it out.
