Why Trust me, Dr. Jamie?

What does zero trans fat mean? None? NOPE
The FDA and the "Zero Trans-Fats" Scam

If you go to any grocery store, you will see all manner of packaging that screams out "Zero Trans-Fats!" Companies boldly advertise this fact, because consumers are finally catching on to how dangerous trans-fats are. Unfortunately, the FDA is allowing many of these companies to blatantly deceive you.

Since January of this year, food manufacturers have been required to list the amount of trans-fat in their products. However, under FDA regulations, if a serving of the product contains less than 0.5 gram of trans-fat, the amount "shall be expressed as zero."

Huh? Even though the product contains trans-fat, they can claim "Zero"? Yep. That's right.

For example: Suppose a product has slightly less than half a gram per serving. That means for every four servings, you consume almost 2 grams of trans-fats. Despite the fact that the box says "zero grams." And remember ... we're talking about an ingredient that the Institute of Medicine has declared to be unsafe to consume in any amount.

So ignore the marketing hype on the front of the package. If it says "hydrogenated" or "shortening" on the label, it contains trans-fat. Don't buy it. Your body will thank you.

But you cannot look at the little square box thingy. You actually have to read the list of ingredients. Usually in fine print somewhere on every food container.

Why are trans fats bad? You might be surprised.

What can you eat to be sure you are not eating trans fats?
