This information is aimed at helping you to reduce your fat intake.  The average individual eats too much fat, a factor that’s linked to a variety of health problems, including cancer. Diets that are high in fat are associated with breast and colon cancer, with some studies linking high fat to prostate cancer as well.A majority of people can bring their fat intakes down to a healthy range by making a few adjustments in the way they shop, cook, and prepare the foods they eat.

Now days, it’s getting easier and easier to control the amount of fat you consume.  The fat content of foods are now available through the nutrition label and through brochures distributed by food companies and even fast food restaurants.

You can use this information on nutrition to choose lower fat foods by comparing products and food brands.  Once you have a rough idea of what a healthy intake of fat is, you’ll know what you can and what you can’t have.

From day to day, the amount of fat you eat will vary.  Some meals and some days will be higher in fat than others.  Even high fat meals can be kept in line with healthy eating as long as you balance those days accordingly.  The average fat intake over the course of weeks and months is important, not the fat intake of every meal and food you consume.

Younger adults and high active adults who have higher calorie needs can probably eat a little more fat.  Older adults and those that aren’t very active should aim for a lower fat intake.  This way, you can control your fat intake and avoid the many problems that fat is associated with.                                                                                                                                                                            Calorie, Cancer, Colorectal cancer, Diet food, dieting programs, Eating, Fitness, Food, Health, Human nutrition, Loss Weight, Nutrition, Nutrition facts label, Physical exercise, Portion Control, Prostate, Prostate cancer, Saturated fat, Top Weight loss, USDA, Weight, weight loss programs, Weight Loss Tips, weight tips
