Is low-fat milk good for you and your family? Yet another study says no.
The start of the low-fat craze back in the 1980′s perfectly matches up with the start of the obesity epidemic. A coincidence? Probably not.
Low-fat products usually contain more sugar and more starches. If not you’ll probably end up eating more carbs anyway as you’ll be hungrier. This raises the levels of the fat-storing hormone insulin. Study after study prove that low-fat diets are worse for our weight than high-fat low-carb diets. The same is true for kids.
Not surprisingly, a recent Swedish study showed that people using low-fat dairy products end up gaining more weight. Now a new American study shows the same thing. Kids drinking low-fat milk are not only more often obese, they also tend to keep gaining more weight than kids drinking full-fat milk:
When will the disastrous low-fat craze end? How many more kids are going to get obese for no good reason?
