Low in Fat But High in Sugar

Fats have copped a really bad rap in recent years and for anyone learning how to lose stomach fat it can be easy to become totally fixated on avoiding any food containing fat.

Although what is misunderstood by many looking at losing tummy fat is that some fats are actually good for you and actually help you to lose fat and become fitter and healthier.

The 'good fats' polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats actually help to rid your body of the bad fats 'Visceral fat' and bad cholesterol which clogs your arteries and lowers your fitness and exercise capacity.

But whats even more worrying is the amount of sugar contained products that are low in fat.

This is why its always smart to look closely at the complete nutritional profile of every product before making it a regular addition to your supermarket trolley.

The three deadly dietary sins to watch out for.
  • The percentage of 'bad fats' in the product, saturated and trans fats.
  • The percentage of sugars in the product
  • The percentage of salt or sodium in the product
