Low Fat Diets

Low fat diets invlove cutting out or reducing our intake of types of added fats, such as butter, margarine, mayonnaise, sour cream and salad dressings. Foods high in fat, such as fried foods, snack foods, cheeses and meats, should be replaced with lower-fat versions such as grilled, poached food or just eaten in smaller portions.

A high-fat diet has been associated, not only with obesity, but also with heart disease and some types of cancer. The plan encourages the use of foods that are naturally low in fat, such as fruits and vegetables, which also contain healthy amounts of essential nutrients.

There has been an explosion of foods such as snack bars, biscuits, cakes, sweets and ice cream, to name a few that are reduced in fat, yet contain lots of sugar. Those foods do not promote a healthy diet, even if they are low in fat.

Surely everyone who has lost weight by starving (which is what low-calorie dieting is) only to put it back on again, must know that dieting alone does not work.

Many animals, including us, have evolved the ability to store energy as fat in case of times when food is scarce. If we do not eat enough the body fights to retain fat. For this reason low-fat, low-calorie dieting forces our bodies to conserve energy -- it is a recipe for weight gain.

The way to lose weight is firstly to eat as much energy as your body needs and maintain a healthy balanced exercise program.
