Yes, your food selection may be low in fat and low in calories per serving size. But are you eating too much of a good thing?
When we see “low-fat” and “low-calorie” labels, it’s very easy to think, “Hey, there’s only 100 calories when I eat 28 of these whole grain baked crackers, so I can eat more because they’re whole grain…right?” Wrong.
It’s important to practice healthy portion control, even if the food is low-fat and low-calorie. Additionally, it is important to eat everything in moderation. If after you enjoy something low fat and low calorie, you find yourself still hungry, enjoy a piece of fruit or yogurt to provide variety to moderation.
