I’ve been hearing a lot lately about how our war on fat may be hurting us instead of helping. There are tons of low-fat and no-fat items, but they’re obviously not making all of us skinny. Or healthy.
Now, some studies are showing that diets that contain more fat—including saturated fat—aren’t necessarily leading to heart disease later in life. Talk about turning what we think we know on its head! Further, other studies show that there may be more of a link between heart disease and foods that rank high on the glycemic index. Regardless of whether we should be pointing the finger at carbs, fats or something else entirely, it seems pretty clear that processed foods aren’t our friends.
