Healthy Fat Intake

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.
