((TOO MUCH FAT IN THE DIET CAN BE A RISK FACTOR FOR HEART DISEASE IT DEFINITELY CONTRIBUTES TO EATING TOO MANY CALORIES WHICH CONTRIBUTES TO OBESITY WHICH IS A NATIONAL EPIDEMIC RIGHT NOW. AND IT CAN LEAD TO OTHER DISEASE CONDITIONS, ORTHOPEDIC PROBLEMS, DIABETES,CANCER RISK)) [RUNS19]

But just how much fat should you have? The Food and Drug Administration says for a 2000 calorie diet --you should not exceed 65 grams a day. Less than 20 grams of that should come from saturated fat.
(///// SOT /////)
[SOT18:21:10]

[OUT Q=clogging type fats]


To eliminate some fat from your diet:
Try canola or better yet olive oil for cooking.
Use margarine over butter --but remember the tubs of margarine are better than the sticks.
Pick unsaturated fats --that come in foods like, peanuts, seeds, and some fish.
Try no-fat items to add flavor to food like barbecue sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, or mustard.
Mayonnaise is actually a healthy type of fat --but if your watching your weight --choose the light brand.
Watch-out for hidden fats -- for example these cakes have 20 grams of fat and-9 grams of saturated. That is half the daily recomended amount of saturated fat.
And a high fiber diet can also help.
