the food you're buying REALLY low fat?
The regulations dealing with how foods
are labled is ambiguous and hard to regulate.
Low Fat is a common term, used to increase
the sales of foods in today's market. Almost
everything you see has the words "Low
Fat" or "Lower Fat" on their
label. But what does this mean? Low compared
to what, a tub of lard?
Read the labels carefully. inspect each
product that you buy for this reason, what
is low fat to a manufacturer can be very
high to your diet.
As a rule of thumb, try finding foods
that are less than 2 grams of fat per serving.
The word "Lower Fat" can be very
misleading. All this statement means is
that the food is lower fat than it was at
one time. If it had 100 grams of fat originally
and it now has 90 grams of fat it is the
"New" Lower fat version but it
could still outrageously high in fat! This
is very common and misleading. Look at the
total fat and the kinds of fat as well.
To sum it all up, just because it says
low fat doesn't really mean it is, check
the label to see if it is Low Fat or Full
