What is the the maximum percentage that a food or beverage is low fat?

Question by Яɑɩɳɓɵw: What is the the maximum percentage that a food or beverage is low fat?
I am on a diet, trying to lose 60 pounds.
I was wondering the maximum amount that is considered low fat. So far I been eating stuff that has no more than 10% once or twice a day, while the other times, I eat stuff that has ZERO fat in it. I seek answers to make sure I’m not pushing my luck with fat percentage.

Thanks to all who answer and Happiest 2008 to you and all your loved ones.

Don’t worry so much about just fat. A lot of “fat free” foods make up for their lack of taste by having increased calories from SUGAR in them. This is just as bad if not worse. Concentrate on eating whole foods–the usuals like vegetables, fruits, lean proteins. Eggs are great for you despite what some say. Just don’t go overboard with anything. Spiking your insulin levels with too much carbohydrates will encourage fat gain also. Watch your intake of bread, milk, pastas, etc and cut out completely all sweets. I know its hard. Get some exercise…even if it is just a walk around the block. You’ll be surprised if you get out every day that you can walk farther and farther each week.
Hope this helps! Take care, and good luck.

Reading a lot on this subject, I found out how many unproductive myths there are about how we gain and how we should lose fat! It’s amazing..

For instance, that there is no fat loss magic to doing cardio on an empty stomach. In fact, most trainers “in-the-know” are using intervals instead of slow, boring cardio to help their clients burn fat fast. And honestly, who wants to be doing boring cardio at 6am while their stomach is rumbling? And now, it’s finally discovered that long cardio or aerobic workouts several days a week are the WORST WAY to burn fat.

The fact is we’re burning fat all the time, even while you sit and read Yahoo Answers here. So you don’t need working out every day, but it’s just enough to do 3 short home fitness workouts per week of 45 minutes with no cardio at all…

Another thing is that those crappy infomercial abs gizmos WILL NOT burn your belly fat or give you a flatter stomach and six pack abs. But you’re going to burn belly fat 5 times faster by using certain full body exercises that don’t actually target your abs at all…

A proper permanent fat loss is about throwing away those good old myths and starting to do the right thing in the most natural way. It’s called Fat Furnace; see here: http://tinyurl.com/ffurnace
