Low Fat Diet Myths Myth # 5. You must avoid all fat in your diet. Not true! The current scientific thinking is that you should certainly minimize or eliminate trans fats. There is agreement that unsaturated fats are actually good for you. However, there is disagreement as to whether saturated fats should be avoided. Further, a diet too low in fats may lead to joint pain.
Myth # 6. If it is labeled “Low Fat”, “Reduced Fat”, or “Fat Free”, it is always good for you. Wrong again, sugar breath! Many high sugar food items such as candy bars, salad dressings, ketchup and other condiments, as well as many other “Low Fat” labeled foods are very unhealthy due to the very high sugar content. This sugar will be stored as body fat, add pounds, and likely will increase your cholesterol. Always check the label for the grams of sugar on the label and avoid high sugar items.
