SUGAR IS THE NEW FAT
We have been brainwashed to believe that eating fat makes us fat. Enter low-fat peanut butter, low-fat coffee creamer, low-fat salad dressings, low-fat yogurt, low-fat cookies … low-fat EVERYTHING!
We ate it all up, and not long after, we were hungry for more.
We thought we were eating healthy. The marketing claims on the packaging certainly made us believe so. But when fat is taken out, the flavor goes with it. So what do food companies do? They replace fat with sugar and artificial flavorings, which lead to excessive hunger (enter hangry into the American vernacular), weight gain and disease.
