Some low-fat foods aren't much better for you than their full-fat counterparts—and others are even worse.
Low-fat bakery items like muffins and pastries aren't any better for you than the full-fat varieties. The material in this site is intended to be of general informational use and is not intended to constitute medical advice, probable diagnosis, or recommended treatments. Former Blue Peter presenter Zoe Salmon follows a low-fat food diet for a month, but a week into the experiment she finds that her memory is getting worse and that she constantly feels tired. She is only allowed to eat foods that are designed to be low in fat, including no fruit or vegetables.
Zoe visits a nutritional expert to find out how the low-fat food diet is affecting her health.

The Big Fat Truth about Low Fat Foods is on Tuesday 15 February at 2100 GMT on BBC Three, or catch-up afterwards on BBC iPlayer.
A packaged low-fat blueberry muffin from one popular brand, for instance, packs 280 calories—that's less than the regular muffin with 370 calories. See the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy (Your California Privacy Rights) for more information. But the low-fat one has more sugar (36 versus 29 grams), and just like the regular version, contains high fructose corn syrup. Another example: a reduced-fat blueberry muffin from a fast food chain contains 170 milligrams more sodium compared to the full-fat one.
More often, do your own low-fat baking at home with clever ingredient swaps, like fruit purees or yogurt for some of the oil.

You can also usually reduce the sugar in any recipe by one-third without changing the taste.
