Does eating fat makes you fat?
Fat is the stuff that lodges under our skin and makes us look soft and puffy. Therefore, eating more fat should make us store more of it. You are what you eat, right?
Well, it actually isn’t that simple.Even though fat has more calories per gram compared to protein and carbs, foods that are naturally high in fat are very fulfilling and hard to overeat. In fact, studies on diets that are high in fat (and low in carbs) show that these diets cause more weight loss than diets that are low in fat.
Because of the ridiculous low-fat advice, food manufacturers removed the fat from some of their foods, and added a whole bunch of sugar to compensate for the missing fat (to improve the taste). For this reason, most “low fat” foods are actually loaded with sugar, which is seriously harmful.
If a food has “low fat” or “diet” on the label, then you will probably find sugar, corn syrup and various artificial chemicals on the ingredients list. Normal fat (not including trans fat) is much healthier than "low fat" labelled food.
