Following on from my blogs on carbohydrates and proteins - onto the last macronutrient - FAT.
I will start off this blog how i started off the others - with the false claims/beliefs that people have with fat and end with some truths. With the supermarket shelves full of “low fat” “reduced fat” or even “fat free” its hard to avoid the stigma around “fat”. You will most often than not find that if an item is “fat free” etc its usually has added sugar to improve the taste that was lost when the fat was taken out. Yes it will be less calories - fat has 9 calories per a gram vs the 4 calories per a gram of carbs and protein. Fat is the most energy dense macronutrient
