Following a low fat diet is all the rage these days. It is also a very healthy way to look at your meal planning and to drop some extra pounds along the way.

1.) Look at your low fat diet realistically.
Start with small achievable goals and stay away from crash diets.
2.) Get rid of all the junk.
Throw out or give away all the un-healthy food in your house. Keep only healthy low fat foods and only prepare what you have.
3.) Keep track of portions and serving sizes.
Stick to smaller more reasonable portions for your low fat diet. Also, know that most packaged food has more than one serving.

When you eat a healthy breakfast, your blood-sugar levels will stabilize and you will less hungry until lunch.
5.) Drink lots of water.
Water is very important for digestion, and will make you feel fuller for longer.

While following a low fat diet, forget the meat dishes at least once a week and concentrate on healthy veggies.
7.) Add fish to your diet twice a week.
Fish is naturally low in fat and some fish, like salmon, have the heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids as well as protein.
8.) Get off the couch.
Exercise is important to any diet as well as a low fat diet. Make sure to talk to your doctor about safe exercise for you as well as any diet you are considering.
