Finally! The U.S. government announced on Thursday that it will be banning the use of trans fats in commercial food production.
While only 11 years later than countries like Denmark and Iceland, the move is projected to save at least 20,000 American lives each year. The FDA determined that these partially hydrogenated oils – long referred to as "killer fats" – are no longer recognized as "safe for use in food."
Why are trans fats so controversial? These fake fats clog your arteries and directly contribute to arteriosclerosis (blockage and hardening of your arteries). These man-made fats are created when the liquid oils are turned into solid fats using a process called hydrogenation.
The problem is that these fats are notoriously used by the food industry to extend the shelf life of food as well as improve its taste and texture (at a significantly cheaper cost than better quality fats).

It's that time of year again. The Thanksgiving/Christmas season is when we’re most likely to gain weight. It's not all our fault – the days get shorter and colder so we crave more food, likely thanks to our primitive ancestors who needed to stockpile calories for the harsh winter.
But the simple fact is that there are more festivities filled with decadent cuisine and treats, and studies show people are more likely to indulge when in the company of others.
It is possible to enjoy the holidays – and those holiday parties – without completely falling off the wagon. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you enjoy the season without adding unwanted pounds.

This time of year, pumpkins are everywhere – carved on porches, clinging in store windows and featured in many of our favorite seasonal foods. Pumpkin isn't just for pie anymore; over the past few years, the start of autumn has been celebrated nationwide by pumpkin-flavored everything.
What started with the hugely popular pumpkin spice latte trend, pumpkin is now everywhere you look; from cheesecake and poundcake to pasta, pastries and popcorn. While I love pumpkin, I've noticed a disturbing trend: most of these pumpkin-flavored sweet treats out there are ... well ... just terrible for you.
For example, a grande non-fat pumpkin spice latte (no whipped cream) from Starbucks has 260 calories and 48 grams of sugar! That's the equivalent of 17 packets of sugar. A pumpkin muffin from Dunkin' Donuts has 550 calories, 24 grams of fat, and 41 grams of sugar! That's about equal to a quarter-stick of butter and 15 sugar packets.
