Low fat diets this, reduced fat that, no matter where you look something is always advertising low to no fat content. So what exactly is the benefit of all these low fat products? People are always talking about eating less fat and I guess a lot of people figure that by reducing the amount of fat you eat you are naturally reducing the amount of fat in your body.
So for the basics:
Foods contain different combinations of calorie-containing nutrients. Carbohydrates and protein provide 4 calories per gram. Alcohol provides about 7 calories per gram. Fat provides 9 calories per gram.
So essentially what a low fat diet is attempting to do is to identify the typical highest source of calories in a typical person’s diet and then to reduce it thus reducing the amount of calories needed to burn.
As I have done research into all of the different diets and such most of them are all variations on a similar theme. Cutting calories.
So what you have to consider when looking at all these different low fat diets is what the most effective way for you to cut the calories you need.
Some key points for you to consider:
Low fat diets can be effective however you should not stress out too much and focus on fitness as well. You don’t have to constantly use the tasteless low fat variant of your favorite foods; rather just minimize how much you are using if you decide for the full fat version.
