Getting Fatter on Low Fat
low fat does not mean low carb
When cruising the packaged food isle, which you shouldn't be doing any way, avoid packed foods labeled as low fat. More often than not, they save you only a few calories and, in doing so, they replace appetite satiating fats with sugar, fillers and carbohydrates that burn quickly, spiking your blood sugar, making you crash resulting in rebound hunger.
Researchers from the University of Alabama at Birmingham found that meals that limited carbohydrates to 43 percent were more filling and had a milder effect on blood sugar than meals with 55 percent carbohydrates. That means you'll store less body fat and be less likely to eat more later.
Have an excellent day.
