I was reading a nutrition forum where I found a post by a guy who figured out an easy way to tell if a packaged food is high fat or low fat. This method is so easy, you can do the math in your head.
A food is considered “high fat” if more than 20% of its calories come from fat.
A food is considered “low fat” if less than 20% of its calories come from fat.
So, here is this cool, do-the-math-in-your-head method for figuring out if a food is high or low fat:
1. Multiply the calories from fat by 5
2. Compare the result from #1 to the Total Calories.
If the result from #1 is more than the Total Calories, the food is high fat.
If the result from #1 is less than the Total Calories, you have a low fat food.
