Myth

Foods in their natural forms like fruits, vegetables and grains have a low calorie and fat content in their natural state and are important foods to incorporate into your diet. However, manufactured low-fat foods arent always low in calories. In order to maintain texture and taste, extra carbohydrates and protein are added into the product (which contribute to more calories). Just because an item is low fat (or low carb) does not give you a green light to eat to overeat. Before eating an extra serving of the low-fat brownie or fruit snacks be sure to read the label for serving size and calorie content.

Tip: Aim to eat foods closer to the earth and choose more whole foods. These foods have a higher fiber content and will keep you feeling satisfied longer.
