My lifestyle was killing me and I knew I had to do something about it. I have learned that the best way to develop a healthy lifestyle is to discover the source of problem and then put a plan into action that will develop good health.

Simple Ways

How many grams of fat do you need each day? Women need between 20 and 40 grams, and men need 30 to 60 grams. Most people, however, eat at least twice that much fat! How can you lower your fat intake? Here are a few simple ways.

Eliminate two of the main sources of fat calories in our diets, cheese and mayonnaise. This will also help reduce your cholesterol levels. Eliminate fast food items from your diet. These are loaded with fat. Eat simple, low-fat meals. Breakfast would include fruit, cereal, skim milk. A good lunch: water packed tuna and whole grain bread. Supper may consist of fish or some other than meat, such as turkey or chicken, vegetables, potato, rice, or pasta to establish new eating habits. That's the sign of a prudent person.
