Light Foods

When you hear the prefix “light” what do you think:

a. not as heavy

b. better for you

c. a rip off by the marketing company to trick you into buying a product

Well, if you thought 1/3 fewer calories or 50% less fat or sodium you are correct! But companies can’t just remove the fats or lower the number of calories without making the flavor different.  So oftentimes, they may add extra calories, sugar, additives or chemicals to make the products taste just as good as the original.

That means there may be extra sugars in your foods.

I would say, stick with your regular foods but cut down on your serving sizes.
