Skip the low fat foods – they are high in sugar. What happens to food when you remove the animal fats? Food companies chemically modify vegetable oils through a process called hydrogenation. Hydrogenated fats increase your levels of trans-fats which are terrible for your heart and cholesterol. But that’s not the worst of it; they also increase the amount of sugar in low fat foods to make it more palatable. For your body that means high carbs and calories. Your body digests these sugars quickly leading to cravings and more caloric intake. Part of eating healthy is to eat natural. Everything in moderation!
