Dr. Peter Foley explained the problem with low-fat products so well in a tweet that it deserves a post here.

A great example of the dangers of ‘low-fat’ or ‘fat-free’ food… 60 g sugar PER POT… equivalent to 15 teaspoons of sugar. Patients thinking that they are ‘doing the right thing’ but in fact unintentionally compounding the problem.

People think they are making a better choice when they pick the low-fat product, but are unaware that they are swapping benign natural fat for harmful sugar.

Thankfully, there is a better way. Check out the links below to learn more.
