The Facts about Fat #256

Fat has more than twice as many calories as the other two main food forms(nine to four grams per protein or carbohydrates). Because your body uses less energy processing fat than other food types, more of its energy is stored as fat. There is some fat that is essential to your diet, but the majority of people eat almost four times as much fat as they really need. To have a healthy diet the average person needs to have only 10% of their calories from fat.

Weight-Loss #6001

Changing the landscape of your plate can help you rein in portions. Aim to fill half of your plate with vegetables, a quarter with lean protein and a quarter with whole grains.
That will stop the propensity to load up on calorie-rich starches.
