Basically, this fad was created for weight loss which it doesn't help with nor does it help prevent disease -it actually led to a plethora of new, processed, low-fat foods, which tasted worse w/out the fat, so manufacturers added sugar & other additives to make them more appealing.
As the image shows there's no fat but high in sugar which turns into fat. Basically the extra sugars or carbs have to be stored somehow and normally that storage is inside the fat cells and those can accumulate also inside the liver, and cause what we call non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Foods that are naturally low-fat — like fruits and vegetables — are great! Furthermore, we need to consume healthy fats daily such as avocados, coconut oil, olive oil, nuts, chia seeds, dark chocolate etc., for a balance diet...
