Is your low-fat diet causing weight gain and health problems?

Fat gives us energy, produces necessary hormones, insulates our bodies from cold, and makes cellular membranes. Fat provides the fuel for muscles, including those in vital organs like the heart. Unfortunately, fats have really gotten a bad reputation in our culture.

Low-fat and low-calorie diets have been all the rage for at least a couple of decades.

Clever marketing specialists promise weight loss and improved health, but this ploy has contributed to things like fibromyalgia, heart disease, chronic fatigue, and type 2 diabetes.
Research out of The National Institute of Health has shown that even though our consumption of fat and cholesterol have declined over the last several years, there has actually been an average of a 10-pound weight gain per person in America.
