Learn About the Fat in Our Food
Narrowing it further, we should stick to not more than 20 to 25 g of total visible fat intake per day. This barely comes to 4 teaspoons a day. Such are the strict guidelines set for healthy eating. But, most of us tend to go much above this set recommendation.
As the quantity of fat consumed is of prime importance, the quality of fat selected for daily intake should also be treated with equal respect. Think for yourself! What if you keep a tight check on 4 teaspoons of fat consumption per day but all of it comes from just one source, say, ghee (clarified butter). Does this makes any sense to you? The answer should be No.
Following the basic principles of a ‘low saturated fat and low cholesterol’ meal plan would definitely take care of at least one of the preventive dimensions of a healthy and weight loss diet regime.
