Low Fat Foods: The Hidden
Low-calorie dieting doesn't just lead
to weight-gain. It can
also cause major nutritional deficiencies.
It is hard to think of fat as a nutrient because of all the hype about
how bad fat is for your health. But, some of the problems:
1) Low fat means high sugar content ( check the ingredients on low fat
food and remember high fructose corn syrup is sugar).
2) You gain back at least as much weight as you lost.
3) You can develop new health problems such as arthritis, chronic
yeast infection and increased PMS.
4) Have you noticed that even though fat consumption has dropped,
weight had gone up. Instead of eating fats, we're overeating
5) Low fat dieting depletes our bodies of essential fatty
nutrients. In reaction, our bodies signal us via cravings to eat
more fats. But the kinds of fats in the junk foods that we binge on
in response to those cravings do not satisfy our fundamental nutritional
needs, and we actually put on weight as we become fat
6) The high carbohydrate contents of these diets convert directly to
poor quality stored fat.
You have to realize: Every
cell in the body is protected by a lining of fat. The brain is 60 percent fat. We all need the essential
vitamin A & E that low fat diets jeopardize. Some of the most
dramatic functions of vitamins A & E are to maintain our immune
system, and our eyesight and to protect against stroke and liver disease.
Low Fat foods also contain more Trans-fatty acids.
