food of no use in fighting flab, say experts
Those trying to lose weight may not benefit from the so-called
low-fat food, say dietary experts. Experts warn that some 'skinny
foods' are no different than chocolates or other high-fat options.
They insist that having so-called light food can sometimes result
in consuming the same amount of kilojoules as eating 'full-fat'
varieties. Experts caution that over-eating of low-fat biscuits,
light yoghurts and low-carb beers can be waist-bloating. And
though many of those items may be light in kilojoules they could
be responsible for hunger pangs only 10 minutes later. Dietician
Clare Evangelista, from the Dietitians Association of Australia,
said so-called diet drinks were also a waste. "Recent research
suggests people who consume large amounts of diet soft drink
do not weigh less than those who don't," the Courier Mail quoted
Evangelista as saying. "This may be because after drinking diet
soft drink, the body does not get the fluctuation in blood-glucose
levels that helps tell the body we are full. "So, drinking diet
soft drink may increase food cravings and feelings of hunger,"
