I used to always buy LOW FAT when it first came out but then realised that to compensate for the fat content, they add more sugar, so now I very rarely buy low fat items.

Milk is a prime example and skim milk has absolutely no taste at all and is almost water, but it does have more sugar.

Sometimes Woolworths only have items available in low fat, and then I have no choice other than to buy elsewhere, so I rarely use low fat foods.

Full fat all the way and no man made #^%&* either. . . . *high five* Finy! They also add fillers like carob bean etc which are carb loaded so you would be better off with the fat.

Not anymore. I was told by my doctor 30 years ago to always buy low fat, in order to prevent heart disease. So, I watched my diet, ate low fat, and ate healthy foods. So why was I putting on weight despite a healthy diet and exercise? Because sugar was added to most foods to make them palatable, after most of the fat had been removed. This happened to many people, not just me, and now we have an obesity crisis that wasn't there 30 years ago, when we were eating full fat foods. Whilst I am not obese, I have put on weight, which I am losing now, since getting rid of sugar in my diet. The added sugar has also lead to a spike in Type 2 diabetes, which can cause multiple diseases and require more hospitalisations. On my dietitians advice, I am back on the full fat products. By the way, heart disease is STILL the greatest killer of women in Australia.
I should qualify my statement by saying that it is carbs I have cut out of my diet, as per dietitians instructions, as carbs break down to, you guessed it.....sugar.

No, I don't, I don't trust those food. I know that they have to compesante the loss of fat with something else and I don't want to eat that.
It's great how we're all learning to see through the words and numbers they use too try and fool us into thinking things are pure :-)))

Yes! :)
by silvi
they are full of sugar, so no I don't use them.
No way. Don't like the taste so always use normal food and full cream where I can.

I use full cream milk, but the only cooking I use it in is homemade pancakes, once a month. I used to use margarine, then butter, now unsalted butter.
I don't do ANY baking.

No. No. No. Fat doesn't make you fat. Full fat for me please.
