2. What is an “Ultra” Low-Fat Diet?
This can be problematic, because fat serves several important functions in the body.
Additionally, fat makes food taste good. A diet that is very low in fat is not as pleasurable as a diet that is moderate or high in fat.
All that being said, studies show that an ultra low-fat diet can have very impressive benefits against several serious diseases.
Bottom Line: An ultra low-fat (very low-fat) diet provides less than 10% of calories from fat. It limits the intake of most animal foods and even eliminates healthy higher-fat plant foods like nuts and avocados.
