When it comes to diet, there is a wealth of misinformation out there which makes it very confusing when making food choices. The obesity epidemic started with the low-fat, high-carb movement. We were taught that fat was bad so we started eating low-fat and fat-free foods to lose weight. Little did we know that the fat was replaced with sugar and chemicals which actually causes more weight gain!
Now we know that fat is not the problem, SUGAR is! Carbohydrates including cereals, breads, pastas turn into sugar, and it is this sugar that makes us fat! In order to really lose weight and fight the obesity epidemic, we need to get out the sugar in our diets and eat protein, healthy fats and plenty of vegetables.
