Eat Less

• Cut down on meat. Eat more fish and poultry instead. When you do eat red meat, choose the leanest cuts.

• Roast, bake, or broil instead of frying. Trim the fat off meat and the skin off poultry, and avoid adding fat in cooking. Beware of sauces and gravies. They often contain lots of fat.

• Eliminate or cut down on high-fat foods like cold cuts, bacon, sausage, hot dogs, butter, margarine, nuts, salad dressings, lard, and shortening.

• Eat less ice cream, cheese, sour cream, cream, and other high-fat dairy products. Check for low-fat versions; they're increasingly available in grocery stores. And drink skim or low-fat milk instead of whole milk.
