Hopefully this information will help take away the fear around the myth that when you start to approach menopause, you are going to gain weight.

How Do Foods That Advertise Low-Fat, Lite or Non-Fat Benefit You? Why should you avoid the food terms “lite” or “low-fat” in what you buy and eat?  Forty years ago, there was a campaign started to produce non-fat and low-fat versions of the traditional foods we eat.  And people think it means they can eat as much of this type of food as they desire to eat, after all, the fat has been reduced!
