There are currently a lot of articles such as this Daily Mail report about a high-tech, low-fat chocolate bar which, it is claimed, could help with the 'obesity crisis'. This low-fat bar, in which most of the fat is replaced by water, without, apparently altering the taste, is described as a "healthy" chocolate bar.
Well I've 3 observations to make:
1. Pigs will fly before these chocolate bars make the slightest difference to the incidence or severity of obesity.
2. There is no evidence at all to support the theory that fat intake is a cause of obesity.
3. 'Low-fat' does not equate with 'healthy'.
To lose excess weight you need to reduce your sodium intake, not your fat intake.
