Trans fat...how do you avoid it?
I've been trying very hard to be healthy this year, but one thing I've been having trouble avoiding is trans fat. If you eat any king of processed food whatsoever there's a very high chance it contains trans fat. Even if the nutrition label says there are 0 grams of it I've learned that's not completely true. What I've learned is that if there is less than 0.5 grams of it, companies are allowed to say that there's "0 grams" on the label. Also, hydrogenated oil (fully or partially) is just a fancy way of saying trans fat (guess I can't have peanut butter anymore...). I feel like I'm torturing myself every time I walk down the isles at the food store. There's so many things that I love the taste of (because I've been eating them for years), but I know they're bad and should be avoided at all costs. Anyways, how do you avoid this stuff? I feel like unless I go vegetarian/vegan this year it feels like it's almost impossible.
