Reduced Fat and Fat Free Treats


”You’ve seen it before – reduced fat crackers and even fat free cookies.  These deceiving little goodies make you think they are healthy options and so you are likely to eat three times as many as you wanted to. But did you know that these treats have been highly processed? When you remove the fat from a product you also need to add sugar and salt to make them taste better but just as caloric and as scary as the regular version.

Less frightening option:

If you’re going to indulge in a treat, go for the real thing. As long as you portion out a serving, nothing will beat the taste that you really crave.
