Low Fat Diet Recipes

  1. 1. Low Fat Diet RecipesFor most people who wish to lose weight, fat is the first item that is the first to go.This is rightly so if it is done the proper way. Fat after all contains a whopping ninecalories per gram as compared to carbohydrates and protein which contain only fourcalories per gram. SImple logic follows that a tablespoonful of ceasar salad dressing ismore fattening than a fat free dip.Chose a day to start - today and not tomorrow! Be realistic in terms of your goal andtimeframe. Acceptable healthy weight loss means shedding not more than twopounds in one week. Trying to lose more than that, be sure to seek professionaladvice because your body can crash leading to more harm than good. Studies showthat yoyo dieting and fad diets eventually lead to more weight gain as dieters oftenrevert to their old eating patterns after going on a diet.The key to any eating program is not to think of it as a diet with strict rules and a lot ofdeprivation. Instead, make subtle lifestyle changes that still allows for your favoritefoods but in more reasonable amounts. Lessening the fat in your meals and snacksdoesn’t mean sacrificing taste and texture. It just means having to make certainsubstitutions and practical choices. For cocktail parties, serve up avocado feta cheesestackers instead of a cheese and cold cut platter. Though avocado is a fatty fruit, itcontains good fat that in the long run raises good cholesterol in the body. The lettuce,tomatoes and thinly sliced feta make it more healthy and filling. Even a rich chocolatedrink can be enjoyed once in a while by using low fat milk instead of whole milk. Thissimple substitution can be applied in practically all drinks and desserts substantiallyreducing the fat content.Going on a low fat diet doesn’t necessarily mean giving up thick creamy soups oftenmade with cream and butter. You can achieve a similar velvety texture and mouthfeel by using low fat ingredients and pureeing it in a blender. Do not go overboard andtotally eliminate fat from your food intake. Fats are required by the body to assimilatecertain nutrients. Vitamins A, D, E and K are vital in maintaining good health. Thoughonly a small amount of dietary fat is required to absorb these nutrients, it can stillhappen especially for really serious dieters who obsessively eliminate all fat, notrealising the consequences. This is a pity since all the nutrients otherwise assimilatedwhen taken with dietary fat just passes away in the waste. Totally avoiding fat canalso lead to chronic illnesses. Lastly, eat breakfast, increase fiber intake, drink lots ofwater and exercise for a happier healthier life!
