I think she might say less fat. While diets often say to cut carbs, trainers tend to say that carbs are okay IF you eat the right kind--complex carbs only; and if you don't eat too many. And during an intense workout carbs in the form of sugars have their place too. I think the key is being realistic about how hard you actually work out and balancing your diet overall. Think of how athletes carbo-load before an event.

Okay, now I'm going to see what Denise Austin says!

It was kind of a trick question in that the answer was not either of the options given. I would have given the same answer that she did because I know its the bottom line when it comes to weight loss.

I do sometimes used light salad dressing but don't eat things like Snackwells because of the sugar issue. I decided that if I'm going to have a cookie or candy bar then have the real thing and be satisfied and try to limit the amount that I eat.
