Furthermore, when manufacturers process foods that are naturally higher in fats to make “low-fat” or “fat-free” versions, they have to replace the fat with something – usually a filler of some kind. This filler is often something unhealthy and sugary, like high fructose corn syrup. This is why a lot of low-fat and fat-free diets are actually bad for your cardiovascular health.
Can you see now how fat really isn’t the enemy? A balanced diet consisting of proteins, good fats, and the right complex carbohydrates (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, etc.) will help you lose weight or maintain your current weight much better than any fat-free diet. If you care about good nutrition, keep fat in your diet.
