I, too, like the idea of eating more natural, real foods that have very little processing and additives but I think the majority of comments are overreactions to this article.
I suspect, a vast number of Spark users and those trying to lose weight are eating bread, cereal, milk etc. And they are lost amidst the onslaught of labelling, and the tug-of-war of ads and articles which fight over what is better for us -- low fat/low sugar vs unprocessed foods, pricey Organic vs non-organic, not to mention the debate over Free Range, Natural, GMO to add nutrients etc. Let's face it, we have all been "swayed" in many directions over the years.
This article is saying yes, low fat is better if you eat too much fats however, try Greek Yoghurt which is naturally better" "Deli meats are ok, and light deli meats are better for you in some ways but you're best option is to cook your own chicken breast and slice it for sandwiches yourself"
For those who can take away valuable information in this article, great. For others who have committed to alternate lifestyles or food choices, don't bash the article for trying to help people who have no idea what to believe. This article does help new dieters and uninformed readers.
