Is eating a low fat diet healthy?

FALSE! The body needs a certain amount of fat to stay healthy. You can overdo a low fat diet. Also, many of the items that are low fat tend to replace fat with sugars, which as you know, can lead to weight problems. Picture a person who thinks the cookies are low fat so they can eat as many as they want. The sugars used to replace the taste or the fats used in the the cookies can cause weight gain and a whole host of other health problems.
