Fat Content Can Be Misleading
When you see a product in the grocery store labeled 98% fat free, don't be fooled. According to the Food & Drug Administration, that percentage refers to the percentage of fat by weight, not by calories. For example, a slice of 89% fat free deli meat means that only 11% of the weight of the product is fat. Although this sounds low, over 50% of the calories may come from fat -- making it a high-fat choice as far as your body is concerned! When selecting low fat foods, ignore the advertising hype; look for grams of fat or the percent Daily Value for fat on the nutrition label.
