Low Fat Diet

What is a Low-Fat Diet?

The amount of fat in low-fat diets is radically reduced. It is understandable that, at present, fat is seen as the ultimate culprit when it comes to being overweight. Fat provides with 9 kcal/g more energy than any other nutrient. Fat, in contrast to carbohydrates, also does not make you feel full for too long. In addition, the body can transform fat a lot easier into storage-fat than carbohydrates.

These days it is estimated that each German consumes more than 100g of fat a day. 60 to 70g are recommended for daily consumption.

It is really dependant on which low-fat diet you are doing but generally the concepts are as follows; either all foods with a proportion of fat exceeding 30% are completely forbidden or it is specified that only 30% of the absorbed calories are allowed to come from fat in food.

Evaluation of the Low-Fat Diet:

"This approach is, theoretically, reasonable and success is guaranteed - provided that you eat enough fruit and vegetables and that you stick to the nutritional pyramid to pick your foods. The total amount of calories consumed in a day also needs to be taken into consideration in this diet. And a long term transformation of living habits including a lot of exercise. "
( Stiftung Warentest " - a German Consumer Foundation - Comparison of 80 diets)

  • If you cut down too much on fat, there is the danger that not enough of the fat-soluble vitamins will be absorbed with the food. The body is also not able to produce certain fatty acids. These need to come from certain foods that you eat
  • Fat plays an important role in increasing the sensory appeal of food.
  • Simply cutting down on fat is usually not enough to tackle the problem.
