5 'Low-Fat' Foods That Are Making It Harder to Control Your Diabetes

Walk through any supermarket, and you’ll see low- and reduced-fat versions of your favorite foods lining the shelves. Are these picks the better choices? “Usually, foods that are not naturally low in fat but that are made to be low in fat have sodium or sugar added,” says Ana Reisdorf, RD, CDE, a nutrition consultant in Lake Forest, California. “Fat provides flavor and makes things taste good. So when you remove it, you need to make the food palatable again.”

Because of this, lower-fat and fat-free foods can end up with a significantly higher amount of sugar and carbs, which can complicate meal planning for people with diabetes. These foods can be consumed in moderation, but paying attention to the kind and amount of fat you consume can help you better manage your weight and blood sugar, not to mention reduce your risk of heart disease, which is linked with diabetes.

Next time you’re jotting down your shopping list, consider cutting back on these low-fat foods if you have prediabetes or diabetes.

Companies want to sell foods so they want to make it taste good. So adding sugar in one form or another (there are many types besides sucrose or ordinary table sugar) is the easiest way. High Fructose Corn Syrup is a common culprit.
Many places in Europe including Britain have outlawed use of HFCS as a food or food additive for consumption by humans.

it is really important if you are diabetic, or have any other special diet to read the label of what is in the food.

i am reminded of a time in college when there was a great big sign on the grass saying do not walk on grass.
A graduate student walked on the grass and got covered with an orange spray that had been applied to get rid of dandelions.
He was laughed at then because he "was a graduate student and did not know how to read."

Years later I found out they had used something akin to Agent Orange on the grass there.

In some ways that is funny, but with chemicals, anything could happen, I hope he didn't get cancer from that!

I know nothing of the outcome of that, and it is a sad story anyway.

but it really proves how important reading labels and instructions can be.
