Diet and low fat products

Diet and low-fat products are usually marketed as healthy options, but they can be just as bad. Most diet foods are high in sugar and artificial sweeteners which can cause weight gain, and cravings, and contribute to diabetes. Low-fat products often contain lots of additives to try and make them taste good which can lead to bloating or weight gain. It’s better to eat natural healthy fats like avocado and olive oil than processed refined sugars in these types of food. Avoid sugary drinks like soda and juice, opting instead for water, tea, or coffee.

Artificial sweeteners such as Equal®, Splenda®, NutraSweet®, Sweet’N Low®, and Sunett® also found in diet drinks are linked with increased risks of cancer, birth defects, and other health problems. Many times diet foods have a lot more calories than their higher-calorie counterparts because of all the added sugar and other ingredients that can pack on pounds. To lose weight it’s best to stick to fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, lean protein sources, quality dairy products, and some nuts/seeds for snacks.
