Cutting Back on Fat

By January 1, 2013

Follow me on:

If your goal is to reduce your fat intake this year but you don't know where to start, I have some great tips to help you do it relatively painlessly. It's important to know, however, that some fat is necessary in our diet. Without it we cannot properly absorb certain vitamins; we need fat for the proper growth and development of cells, and for basic energy. The problem is that we eat too much of it, and often we eat the "wrong" kinds of fat.

Whether you're eating at home or away, you can shave fat calories by making smart choices. Bear in mind that cutting fat alone doesn't automatically mean better nutrition or even significant calorie savings -- unless you also make other healthy choices, such as limiting refined sugars, watching your sodium intake, and limiting portions. Whatever your reason for eating low fat, whether it's for medical reasons or to lead a healthier lifestyle, here are some nifty ways to do so.

May I simply say what a relief to find somebody
that genuinely understands what they are talking about
online. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to
light and make it important. More and more people
need to look at this and understand this side of your story.
I was surprised that you are not more popular because
you certainly possess the gift.
