Health tip for managing Dietary Fat

Some fats are an vital part of a balanced diet, but there are "good" fats and "bad" fats.
The American Academy of Family Physicians proposes few ways to manage your consumption of fat:
  • Shun fast foods that contain unhealthy trans fats.
  • Don't eat too much red meat. Instead, opt for leaner sources of protein such as fish, poultry and vegetables.
  • Avoid too many potato chips in favor of soy or peanuts without salt.
  • Top a salad with nuts, avocado or garbanzo beans.
  • Opt for margarine that's liquid or in a soft tub container, in place of butter. Choose margarine that is low in saturated fat and doesn't contain trans fat.
