Welcome back to National Nutrition Month® 2015 Q&A! Check to see if you got the correct answer to yesterday’s question.
True or False: Fat-free products are always a better alternative than regular ones.
False – Just because a product is fat-free doesn’t mean it is calorie free. In fact, fat-free or reduced-fat products can have as many, if not more, calories per serving than regular products. So, yes, you do need to watch your fat intake. But remember that calories count too.
