Eating less fats makes kids overweight
27 Mar 07
Hi, it's like this. Eating little fat means carbohydrates are consumed more (sugars). It causes more release of insulin in the body to use the extra sugar eaten. Insulin is a growth factor and facilitates deposition of fat in the body. That's how kids become overweight. In fact, even in adults, the focus now is on eating normal fat and low carbohydrate diet with adequate proteins for optimal body functioning and health. In short, carbohydrates are found to be more dangerous in excess amounts than fat. Thanks.
