The plan encourages the use of foods that are naturally low in fat, such as fruits and vegetables, which also contain healthy amounts of essential nutrients and fibre. There has been an explosion of foods - snack bars, biscuits, cakes, sweets and ice cream, to name a few - that are reduced in fat. However, the problem is that they almost always contain lots of sugar instead, and sugar leads to weight gain when eaten to excess.
This is why moderate fat diets are fine, but some people will interpret this as low-fat (a much more common term) and cut out fat altogether, and this is unhealthy.
Most people eat around 35-37% of calories from fat, while Government recommendations are 30%.
We need healthy fats, such as omega-3s from oily fish, and omega-6s from nuts and seeds, for immune, cardiovascular and nerve health. When experts recommend choosing foods with 5% fat they are talking about 5% of the weight of the food, so 5 grams of fat out of 100 grams of food product (and not 5% of calories). This 5% will however translate into around 25-30% of calories (because fat has more calories than other ingredients and also because some of the food weight will be water).
None of this is a problem, except that people get confused and the messages should ideally be consistent.
