In addition, there is a good fat called unsaturated fats. This kind of fat is good for your health, especially for your blood flow (great for your heart health and cardiovascular system).
For examples, it can be found in avocados, olive oil, walnuts, soybean oils, etc.
However though unsaturated fats are good fat, they are also pretty high in calories! So, you still need to eat them in moderation!
If you buy a food packages, don’t forget to read the nutrition labels!
For summary, here are some major keys to start your low-fat diet:
- Don’t only focus to specific food. You need also to eat a variety of low/free-fat foods to provide all nutrients that your body needs. As written before, each food can contain unique essential substances for the body.
- Again, remember that low-fat or even free-fat food doesn’t mean that it is free of calories!
- Don’t only focus on what you eat. If you are a sedentary individual (lack of physical activity), you can increase your best chance of losing weight faster by increasing the level of your physical activity – do a regular exercise to build more muscles and burn more calories!
- Get plenty of fiber and keep hydrated! Both are the basic things to help you feel full longer! See also the role of fiber for weight loss on this section!
Furthermore, eat more unprocessed foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables (high in fiber), whole grain products, and so on.
