Since you’ve attended one of our nutrition workshops or because you’ve consumed enough knowledge on your own or through the Verve blog, you know that fat is a staple in our diets.  Some people still live by that fat free lifestyle, so here I present to you an article about how “non-fat” or “fat free” is the biggest scam going.

Foods labeled “non-fat” are basically filled with sugars and artificial flavors.  Fat is delicious and provides flavor to food. When food manufactures remove fat, they are left with a pretty bland and tasteless result.  In order to make the food taste good, they add large amounts of sugar and artificial sweeteners.  Foods high in sugar result in a release of a large amount of insulin that results in less success in losing body fat.  Doesn’t really add up does it?

Non-fat labels usually result in people consuming more calories than they would by eating foods high in fat.  The labels convince people that they are eating healthy and therefore consuming less calories, which tends to lead to more eating of the so called healthy food that are anything but.  If you do go for one of those “healthy” labelled foods be wary of the amount you are eating.  

Fats in the correct amount are good for healthy bones, good skin, a healthy immune system as well as many other internal and external benefits.  Fat free foods deprive your body of essential elements your body needs for optimal health.

So next time you’re in the grocery store, pick up one of those healthy labelled items read the ingredients and think about what’s really going into your body if you choose to buy the product.
