7. Low Fat
A macronutrient is a food required in fairly large amounts in our human diet. There are only 3 macronutrients that are commonly considered:
Carbs (includes sugars)
Low Fat Recommendations - success or failure?
Low fat diets make you hungry and keep you hungry for a couple of reasons, the main one being that if your diet is “low fat” then it is most likely high in carbs. The exception is the “Atkins” type diet which is a high protein diet, I will be discussing the benefits and downfalls of a high protein diet next week. The other main issue with a low-fat diet is that many people on this diet eat loads of processed carbs that are high in short-term calories but low in nutrients.
