Food busters 2: Diet foods

March 14, 2008

I don’t have much time today, so this will be an experiment in keeping it to the point.

Diet foods/drinks generally try to eliminate fats of any kind, based on the common misconception that eating less fat will help you to lose weight. The problem with this, is that what actually determines weather you gain or lose weight in the end, is how many calories you intake, and how many you burn daily. Though much of the fat they cut out is indeed bad, the problem is how they make up for the loss in taste from that process. To combat the somewhat lacking taste guess what they do? add sweetener, which is guess what? HFCS. The end result is that “diet” foods are much less healthy then non-diet foods. The most notably unhealthy Diet products are by far, sodas.

So if it says diet on it, think twice, it may be even less healthy then its normal (and often more tasty) counter-parts.

  1. I usually drink diet sodas instead of the normal ones, mainly because I hate the feeling of having sugar on my teeth. But I don’t drink more than one glass per week, I’m more of a coffee person. As for food I just stay away from junk food as often as I possibly can.
