5. EATING ‘LOW FAT’ FOODS
Despite the years of public health warnings we’ve had regarding consuming fat, new studies show that sugar is actually a more looming cause of obesity.
We’ve all been buying more low fat foods as we believe that they are ‘healthy’, but this isn’t the case. Foods with removed natural fat may be less calorific, but that fat is instead replaced with sugar and bad chemical additives that are far more unhealthy. For you.
Sugar is quickly used up or stored by the body, which means that you’ll be hungrier sooner. Meaning that if you’d have eaten a balanced meal instead, you would have eaten fewer calories, as you would have been fuller for longer.
