BUSTING MYTHS: LOW FAT & FAT-FREE FOODS

MYTH :  If a food is low in fat or fat-free, it must be health !

FACT:  Just because a food is low in fat or fat-free does not mean it’s healthy.  In fact there are a lot of low-fat food choices that are in the market today that are not healthy: candy, pop, low-fat cookies, fat-free frozen treats.  While these foods may in fact have little or no fat, they are usually still high in sugar and calories and offer few, if any, nutrients.  There are, however, some foods that are higher in fat and are health choices: fish, avocados, nuts, seeds and nut butters.

It is important to choose foods wisely:  Read the food labels and consider a food’s overall nutrition content.  Don’t judge a food by fat alone!!

It can be confusing trying to eat right and be healthy.  As a Registered Nutritionist I work with client providing counselling and advice as well as personalised nutrition plans.  Whether you are looking to lose weight, want to learn how to eat healthy or have any other nutrition questions please feel free to CONTACT ME.
