Read How Success is Possible!
The eDiets Low-Fat meal plan is designed for anyone who wants to lose weight, as well as reduce the risk of heart disease and relieve the symptoms of indigestion or gallstones. Fat provides twice as many calories per gram compared to carbohydrates and protein. In addition, a high-fat diet, together with inactivity, is the leading cause of obesity. A high-fat diet is also generally high in artery-clogging saturated fat, linked to increased blood cholesterol levels. Obesity and high blood cholesterol are independent risk factors for heart disease, but both increase your risk for heart disease. Following a low-fat diet, especially one that is low in saturated fat, is important for overall well-being and a healthy heart.
The Low-Fat meal plan features low-fat, high-fiber foods including oats, vegetables, fruits, beans and healthy sources of protein including fish, skinless poultry and lean meats to minimize cholesterol and saturated fat. Based on the food pyramid, as well as recommendations from the American Heart Association, it provides 50-65% of your calories from carbohydrates, 20-25% of your calories from protein and less than 30% of your calories from fat. Of your fat calories, less than 10% will be from saturated fat sources.
