Americans are getting fatter because they are overeating fat-free and low-fat foods.

Fact

Obesity occurs when more calories are consumed than used. Lower-fat, lower-calorie foods can help cut total calorie intake when used as part of a well-balanced and calorie controlled diet. Increased physical activity also plays an important role in weight maintenance. In addition to burning calories, increased activity benefits overall health in many ways such as disease prevention and stress reduction.
