Diet – foods can make you fat – study

Liver fat accumulation was significant in the high-sugar, low-fat group, researchers said.

Rats fed a diet high in sugar but low in fat – meant to imitate many popular diet foods – increased body fat mass when compared to rats fed a balanced rodent diet, researchers said.

The high-sugar diet induced a host of other problems, including liver damage and brain inflammation.

“Most so-called diet products containing low or no fat have an increased amount of sugar and are camouflaged under fancy names, giving the impression that they are healthy, but the reality is that those foods may damage the liver and lead to obesity as well,” said Krzysztof Czaja from University of Georgia.
