Did you know that eating "fat-free" increases weight gain. After fat is removed from the foods, high-carbohydrate sweetners are added, such as high fructose corn syrup, which are nothing more than fat fertilizers and future heart attacks. Look for sweetners listed also as sucrose, dextrose, or cane sugar on the labels of your favorite foods. Consuming healthy fats such as Alaskan salmon or salmon oil, coconut and olive oil, grass-fed beef, seeds, nuts, avocados, and eggs--is essential for proper growth and development, and the maintenance of good health. It provides your body with vital energy without causing you to gain weight.
