A low-fat diet is more complicated than many people realize because many people mistakenly believe if they eat only foods labeled low or reduced fat that they are following a low-fat diet. Many people struggle with low-fat diets because they don't enjoy counting calories and don't know how much total fat is in their foods but it isn't difficult to implement a low-fat diet into one's life
