"Fat-Free" Foods


Repeat after me — fat-free does not mean calorie-free.

Prepackaged processed foods often contain a host of unhealthy ingredients to make up for being fat free, like sugars, artificial sweeteners, and chemicals. Make sure to check the label to make sure all the ingredients are healthy (and pronounceable).

Want to know a truly healthy fat-free food? Fruits and vegetables. Try reaching for those next time you need a snack fix.
