It's A Low Fat Diet You Need

Often what you call low fat food is high in sugar, low fat diet is what helps cut fat intake

While a recent research has shown that cutting all fat from our diet doesn't necessarily help us lose weight, there is a moderate road to follow for health and long-term weight maintenance. Instead of replacing high-fat foods with low-fat (and higher sugar) versions of those same foods, follow our guidelines for a satisfying low-fat diet.

Set a goal of eating 15 to 25 per cent of your total calories from fat: For a 1,200 calorie diet, eat 20 to 33 grams fat; For a 1,500 calorie diet, eat 25 to 42 grams fat; For an 1,800 calorie diet, eat 30 to 50 grams fat.

Foods to toss
Cookies, candy and snack cakes - even if they're fat-free! No matter the fat count, these treats are high in calories and you'll have to eat a lot of them to feel full. Chips, tortilla chips and snack crackers. All of these foods are fried, meaning they soak up fat. Fried shrimp, french fries, onion rings, fried fish fillet - anything fried! Pizza and similar frozen snack foods. The cheese and meat add on tons of fat. Red meat and prepared meat products such as sausage or bacon.
