Is Low-Fat Making You Fat?
For a long time fat seemed to be the enemy. Everyone was buying low-fat; cheese, milk, salad dressing, etc. But lately society has been embracing the fats. Avocados, olive oil, and nuts are all high in fat- but we know they’re healthy. But if you’re still buying skim milk, you might be doing yourself a disservice. A recent study by Scandinavian Nutritionist showed that people who consume full fat dairy were less likely to be obese, and more likely to lose weight, than those who drank fat-free dairy. The fatty acids in dairy can help regulate your hormones and keep your metabolism energized. Not all calories are created equally, so indulge in some whole milk with your dark chocolate tonight.
