Which is less healthy: jam or peanut butter on your toast? Or perhaps a layer of butter instead?
What about an afternoon snack – are you worse off with a small chocolate bar or a piece of cheese? And for dinner, should you eat a cream-based pasta or sugary tomato sauce?
The fat versus sugar debate has intensified in recent times, with more nutritionists (and some non-experts) arguing it is not fat making us obese, but sugar, in an argument that threatens to turn the dietary world upside down.
Indeed those who warn sugar is the enemy claim we should be eating full-fat products and ignoring ‘diet’ labels.
Some go so far as to say that while even natural honey and high-sugar fruits such as bananas and watermelon are off the table, cream, cheese, nuts and butter can be piled on aplenty.
