Action List for Fat
Did you know there are at least four great reasons to eat less fat?
1) It can assist in weight loss or weight maintenance because you’ll be eating fewer calories.
2) It can help reduce your risk of heart disease by reducing saturated fat, which will help lower blood cholesterol levels.
3) It may help reduce your risk of cancer.
4) Eating fewer high-fat foods means more room for fruits, vegetables, grains, and beans. Here are some actions to get you started and keep you going. Try two or three actions now and try more later.
Use reduced-fat or nonfat salad dressings.
Use nonfat or lower fat spreads, such as jelly or jam, fruit spread, apple butter, nonfat or reduced-calorie mayonnaise, nonfat margarine, or mustard.
