Less Fat = More Pounds

Nothing in life is free, even those fat-free foods. For many dieters, the fat-free trap is a real danger. People falsely assume that the "free" implies it's a free for all, a license to eat all you want. But that's hardly the case. Although a product may be low in fat, it is also supplemented with excess sugar and calories to maintain that satisfying taste. That means you're actually getting almost the same amount of calories portion for portions. While the total grams of fat are reduced, the calorie count is not. Take these foods as examples. Two tablespoons of regular peanut butter is 191 calories, while two tablespoons of reduced-fat peanut butter are 187 calories.
