Low-Fat Doesn’t Mean Healthy
The low-fat diet promoted by the mainstream nutrition guidelines seems to have been a failure.
Numerous long-term studies suggest that it neither works for weight loss nor disease prevention (11, 12, 13). What's more, the trend led to a plethora of new, processed, low-fat foods. Yet, because foods tend to taste worse without the fat, manufacturers added sugar and other additives instead.
Foods that are naturally low-fat — like fruits and vegetables — are great, but processed foods labeled "low-fat" are usually loaded with unhealthy ingredients.
