Fast Food = Fat Food, Part 2

Thursday, July 31, 2008

There's a book that came out late last year, called "Eat This, Not That" which was quite interesting indeed. The whole premise is that restaurants may be hiding behind labels, but giving you more than you're expecting.

For example: meals advertised as "low fat" at one restaurant turned out to be pretty high in calories. Kind of negates why you may have ordered low fat to begin with!

Another was the enormous amount of sugar in foods that seem to be healthy at first glance. For example, do you really want to know how much sugar is in that fruit & yogurt smoothie...that turns out to be make with pureed fruit with HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) added?

Anyway, you can read my full posting here:

If we want to eat right and lose weight, we need to be very vigilant about knowing what we're feeding our bodies!

    Unfortunately, some restaurants are more motivated by money than by our health. It's good that some of them are now being exposed.
