When you are shopping in the supermarket, do you always opt for low-fat products as opposed to full-fat?There are generally 3 ingredients that food manufacturers add to give food its flavour: fat, sugar and salt.
I would say that 99% of the time, when fat is taken out, sugar and salt are added to enhance the flavour. Salt and sugar are far worse for your health then fat…in fact fat is essential for our health whereas sugar and salt are detrimental. Most of the time, many other ‘chemical’ ingredients are added to make the food look, behave and taste the same as the full fat version. The illustration shows an example of low-fat peanut butter VS full-fat peanut butter. Just look at the differences in the sodium and sugar levels, and the ingredients lists.
The same is true for cheese, yoghurts etc…Please read the labels when you are next in the supermarket and make the comparison yourself. My recommendation is to always opt for the full-fat version of everything you buy. The trick to weight-loss is to eat healthy food that enhances your health and well-being, in the right quantities for your body…its not about putting chemical low-fat versions into your body that, yes, will help you lose weight but will leave you unhealthy, unbalanced and vulnerable to disease.
Its important to read labels and make your own informed decisions. The fewer the ingredients of course, the better…
