Day 5: Cut Back On Fat

Change your cooking. Cutting off any visible fat from meat and skin from poultry before cooking, and draining off fat after cooking are easy ways to cut down on fat. Grilling meat instead of frying is a great idea too. Cut down on snack foods as they are often jam-packed with fat. Try to keep food such as buns, crisps, cakes, pastries and biscuits as occasional snacks.

This week’s top tip: Make a swap

Making a swap is easy to do and means you don’t have to miss out. Try switching to oven chips rather than deep frying them, or having a dollop of low-fat yogurt (frozen or fresh) instead of having cream or ice cream.
