Are low fat products making us healthier? 

If you were born between 1950 and 1990, you are most likely a victim of the ‘low-fat era’.

It all started in 1977 when the New Zealander government started telling people to eat less fat, and soon other countries followed suit. By the mid-80’s low-fat diets were gaining in popularity, with enough interest to fuel the birth of an entire ‘low-fat’ industry. By the 90’s, eating full fat products was frowned upon almost as much as smoking cigarettes.

The idea behind this mass marketing was that an excess of dietary FAT was causing obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Therefore it was hypothesized that a reduction in FAT would reverse these problems.

The interesting thing is that up until 1980, obesity rates were around 13%. By the late 1980’s, they had shot up to 25%. Today it’s 35%. And the heart disease and diabetes statistics show the same increasing trend.
