Health: Low-Fat Eating

Here are some specific tips on eating a low-fat diet.

Eat more vegetables, fruit and grains.

You don't have to stop eating foods you enjoy that are high in fat, just cut down on the amount of their servings. Use bigger quantities of low-fat foods to accompany them.

Instead of a steak that covers the whole plate, get a cut that you really like of modest size. 4 ounces of beef is recommended - that's a steak about the size of a deck of cards.

Eat fatty foods less often. You don't have to quit your favorite foods completely. For example, you don't have to have meat every day.

Trim the visible fat. Remove all of the skin from poultry.

Limit organ meats (liver, kidney)

Drink skim or 1% milk (if you drink milk)

Watch the cheese. Look for low-fat varieties, especially for cooking.

Don't add fat as you cook.

Instead of frying, use roasting, grilling or baking.
