Yeah that's what I do a lot. I get fat free foods like "Re fried Beans, Salad Dressings ,fat Free Puddings" and on and on, that gives me a little leeway on adding a little bit of goodness to my food like some bacon in my beans, eggs and ham in my salad and some whipped cream on my pudding . Do you allow yourself some fat in your diet?

Of course i would. I mean i would add fatty substances like this Ghee,butter and creamy cheese and all that before i became like those.Well,i started gaining pounds and i was looking quite a bit abnormal.Then i avoided curd and ghee, all those Fatty substances onto my diet. Now that i am back to normal, my tongue says, Oh come one, how long can i be without those? Give me some..So i take in.. With limits (rasp)

Portion control is very important, I think you can eat anything you want in moderation

I usually just buy the fatty stuff and then don't add anything I have went through times when I would try to reduce my fat intake though. I would usually end up adding some goodie to that too though.

Love the fatty stuff, if you loose weight from eating greasy and fattening foods I be a tooth pick.

Often fat free has sugars added that make them tasty. Of the things you listed the only one I do is fat free refries, because I like them with cheese and sour cream. They recommend that you have certain kinds of fats as they help you absorb the nutrients. I will make pudding at home with 1% milk, which is what I buy. You need that one percent to absorb the calcium. I guess the fat free salad dressing is the only one I do not do, although I will sometimes use salsa on the salad instead of dressing.

I've been using 1% milk for about 3 years now, I used to drink whole milk till I went on my diet, I tried fat free but I couldn't even taste any milk so I stay with 1%. There are some fat free dressings that I tried and hated so I never buy them again. Lots of times I also use light dressings to save a few calories.

Fat provides calories and is an essential nutrient for your cells and tissues. Yet there are two types of fats, unhealthy fats and healthy fats. Yes I allows fat in my diet. The right combination of foods help you increase your caloric intake and build muscle, without putting on the excess as fat.
