Remember the days when it was low-fat everything? Well, it seems those days are gone. Perhaps there's a good reason?
As a nation we listened, dropping fat intake from about 40 percent in 1990 to 36 percent today, yet we still gained weight.
The problem is, while we paid attention to the low fat, we forgot the golden rule, low calorie. Our calorie consumption went up about 10 percent over the same period of time. With odds like that, even the French might get fat.
We may be making the same mistake about calories again with the low carb diets.
Sure, there are bad carbs like white bread and cake as well as processed foods, but there are also good carbs such as fruits and vegetables, and there are also good fats, olives and nuts, to name a few. Whatever you end up eating, low carb, low fat or just a balanced meal, remember to watch those calories.
