Cutting down Fats, especially Saturated Fats in the diet

About one quarter of the fat we eat comes from meat and meat products, one fifth from dairy products and margarine and the rest from cakes, biscuits, pastries and other foods.

It is easy to cut down on obvious sources of fat in the diet, such as butter, oils, margarine, cream, whole milk and full fat cheese, but we also need to know about - and watch out for - 'hidden' fats.  Hidden fats can be found in foods such as cakes, biscuits, nuts.  Even lean, trimmed red meats may contain as much as 10% fat.

By being aware of foods which are high in fats and particularly saturated fats, and by making simple changes to your diet, you can reduce the total fat content of your diet quite considerably.  Whenever possible, choose reduced fat or low fat alternatives to foods such as milk, cheese, salad dressings, and fill up on very low fat foods, such as fruit and vegetables, and foods that are high in carbohydrate such as pasta, rice, bread and potatoes.
