How to cut down on fats – quickly!
Below are some helpful tips on how to reduce the amount of fat in your diet quickly.
Steer clear of meats such as sausages, bacon and cured meats
Venison (l know it’s expensive!) contains less than 2% fat compared to beef, lamb and pork.
Don’t add fat when cooking meat, a descent non-stick frying pan is all you need.
Don’t use mild varieties of cheese, always go for an extra mature as you need less to get the same taste.
Make sure the oil is piping hot before adding ingredients as warm oil is absorbed into the food.
Remember the hidden fats in those drinks, always use skimmed milk in latte, cappuccino or hot chocolate or simply have water or herbal teas instead.
Don’t trust low or fat free products, they always contain more calories due to the thickeners and sugars added to boost flavour, always read the label.
When using oil always measure out by using a teaspoon or tablespoon, this way you see how much you use.
I hope this helps you be more aware of the hidden fats in your diet and how to avoid them, helping you to lose weight and achieve a healthier diet.
