Fat fake

Though people using the HumanaNatura natural system should not use or need foods with artificial fats, we thought we should publish info on a new study, suggesting a fake fat fake-out. In the new study, researchers at Purdue University fed a group of lab mice a diet with potato chips containing the artificial fat Olean as part of a high-fat diet alternative. They found these mice ate more overall and gained more weight than mice who were fed a similar diet that included full-fat potato chips. The researchers speculate that the mice in the experimental group continue to crave and eat added calories, and also have their metabolism altered to favor weight gain, when using the artificial fat.
