Diet Products: Sense or nonsense?
Diet products do not always create a slender figure.
Surprisingly, most products that claim to be healthy usually belong to the group of unhealthy foods. Jelly babies with 0% fat, chocolate and muesli bars which contain a lot of milk, low-fat salami and low-fat mayonnaise do not belong to the healthy and low calorie foods even though the advertisements claim otherwise.

Diet Products: Evaluation
- Diet products are usually products that are rich in calories and have been made "less potent". In most cases, the calorie or fat-reduced version is still not appropriate for weight loss.
- It is worth taking a look at the nutritional value of the diet products. Even low-fat products contain a lot of calories and cause you to put on weight.
- Most diet products are expensive.
- Diet products get rid of the guilty conscience and can lead to a higher consumption of food. "I might as well treat myself to two of the low-fat sausages instead of just one?"
- Diet products are limiting when it comes to reducing the intake of calories. If you cannot avoid certain foods then it is possible for you to reduce the consequences. The only real diet products are foods that naturally contain few calories, for example, fruits and vegetables.
