Could I Have Plumped up on Snacks with Fat Substitutes? Duh. YEAH.

By Josiebrown @JosieBrownCA

I never met a Snackwells I didn't like.

Especially the Devil's Food cookie cake one.

So now, I feel betrayed.

 A new study by the American Psychological Association shows that eating fat substitutes may be the reason we gain more weight. Why? Because we think we can have another...and another...and another...

Or, as the ad says, you just can't eat one.

Cookie. Potato chip. You name it. 

Says Susan E. Swithers, PhD, the Purdue prof who lead the project: “Our research showed that fat substitutes can interfere with the body's ability to regulate food intake, which can lead to inefficient use of calories and weight gain." 

So you see, fat subsitutes not only mess with your mind; they mess with your body, too.

Which leaves us with the math: it ain't the fat that'll plump you up. It's the calories.

Okay, I'll admit it: I'm dyslecsic with zeros. They diasapper on me when I muliply. Division? Fuggetabout it!

But I can add. 120 calories plus 120 calories equals 240 calories, without or without fat. 

Because, you see: there's always sugar, which is high in empty calories will kill you, too.

I feel like Newman in Seinfeld, when he finds out that the "fat-free" frozen yogurt... ain't.

Food glorious food,
