Simple ways to cut bad fat

Limit meat products that are high in fat content, such like sausages, pies, burgers & salami. Look for lower fat atlenatives, fresh meat is ideal as you can see and taste the difference.

Trim the fat off away from your food and keep the meat lean and healthy.

Choose reduced fat dairy products like low fat yogurt and semi skimmed milk.

Eat more fresh vegetables and fish, at lest two portions of fish should be consumed each week .

Snack more on fruit, bananas and apples instead of crisps and chocolates

Steam, boil, poach, bake or grill your food, try cooking without fats and oils where ever possible, less frying and roasting food.
