Simple Key to Weight Loss

Categories: Health

You may have seen this before.  It's no secret.  But I only know of one weight-loss expert (I'll call her Susan) that emphasizes this formula:

fat grams x 9 ÷ total calories x 100 = percentage of fat

For example, I just ate a sandwich with mayonnaise. On the mayonnaise label, it shows 7 fat grams and 70 total calories.


The mayo is 90% fat!

Don't be fooled by "low fat" labels or "diet" products.  Remember this formula and learn for yourselves which food is fattening and which food isn't.

As Susan tells us, you MUST eat!  One small candy bar has the same fat content as a bushel of grapes.  So if you must eat, and you don't want to gain weight, which would you choose - the candy bar or the grapes?  It's a no-brainer!  There's no excuse for being obese.  With rare exception, it's a simple matter of choice.  If you eat fattening foods (even those that are labeled "low fat"), you will get/stay fat.
