The Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Blog: “Sugar Free”, “Fat Free”, “BS Loaded”

There is lots of marketing hype out there that makes us THINK we are buying something “healthy” when in fact, we are being somewhat deceived. Have you seen dessert carts that offer up “sugar free ice cream”? How about “fat free puddings”? ”Light beer”? In the case of alcohol, as mentioned previously, there is a metabolism slow down that occurs with alcohol ingestion as well as a loosening of food choices, so “light” doesn’t help much. Sugar free ice cream and “no added sugar” cakes? Check the caloric content and fat content. Do not let marketing hype gull you into choices that are not consistent with your plans to lose weight, become healthier and happier.
