Cooking for a Low-Fat Lifestyle

  1. Cook for a Healthy Heart

    Part of eating a heart-healthy diet means fixing foods using low-sodium, low-fat, and low-cholesterol methods.

  2. Cutting Calories and Fat When Eating Out

    To better control your calorie intake you need to know how much you eat. But if you're like most Americans, proper serving sizes are a mystery, thanks to mega-burgers, biggie fries and saucer-sized bagels.

  3. Go for the Whole Grains

    Compared with refined grains, they have more fiber and disease-fighting antioxidants. Whole grains are also a healthy way to control weight because they are digested slowly, so you feel full longer with fewer calories.

  4. How to Cut the Fat and Keep the Flavor

    By adopting a dozen or so of these eating habits, most people can continue to enjoy the foods they like and still lose pounds. Don't forget to include daily exercise in the plan.

  5. How to Make Heart-Healthy Food Choices

    Maintaining a healthy diet is one of the best weapons for fighting cardiovascular disease and other heart conditions.

  6. Simple Ways to Improve Your Diet

    Eating healthy can reduce your risk of illness and lengthen your life. Eating a balanced, low-fat, low-cholesterol diet reduces your risk of heart disease, certain cancers, diabetes, stroke and other diseases. Follow these tips to help improve your diet.

  7. Turn High-Fat Recipes Into Low-Fat Dishes

    It's difficult to be satisfied with grilled squash if you've grown up eating fried chicken. Fortunately, there are ways to eat a healthy diet and still enjoy your favorite foods, nutrition experts say. The secret? Prepare the foods differently.
