Fat-free and lower-fat foods are the solution to obesity.

Fact

These foods can help manage the amount of fat and calories we eat, but successfully losing and maintaining weight depends on using more calories than are consumed. To lose weight, you need to take in less energy (eat fewer calories) and expend more energy (burn calories) through physical activity. The most effective way to keep lost weight off is to stay active.When using lower-fat and fat-free products to help manage weight, eat a well-balanced diet that includes plenty of fibre. Fibre adds volume without adding calories and can help produce a feeling of fullness after a meal. Eat plenty of whole grain foods, vegetables and fruits for a fibre-rich diet.
