Following recent ‘revelations’ making sugar our biggest enemy, many people mistakenly concluded that now ‘it’s OK to consume fats freely’ and they no longer need to worry about fat content of their meals and snacks. But is it really the case?
Concerns are growing rapidly about the devastating consequences of this approach to healthy diet and weight loss.

Interestingly, Western society is dramatically deficient in such healthy fats and still consuming high quantities of unhealthy ones! Even the fashionable Ketogenic diet, often used as a weight loss tool, can lead to serious cardiovascular health issues!
For those who are still selecting low-fat or fat-free foods to support their weight loss regimens – according to a recent UK study, low-fat/fat-free foods can contain up to 10% more calories and 40% more sugar! And the vicious circle of low fat but high sugar and vice versa continuous.
