A Grocery List of Low Fat Foods

A quick reference or handy guide can be helpful, when you have made a decision to eat right. A reference could be a grocery list of low fat foods, a chart or a meal plan.

I use a chart called Michi's Ladder with five tiers. It is a grocery list of low fat foods, a list of carbohydrate foods and a list of protein foods that you can choose from. This list is just a guideline, but it allows you to decide from a variety of food. This list is also separates all of the foods that listed into five groups called tiers.

If you only ate from tiers 1 and 2, you would have a near-perfect diet.

More about Fats

Avoid saturated and trans fats in red meats, full-fat dairy foods, and processed foods. Learn to read labels.

Avocados, raw nuts, flaxseeds, and olive oil are great sources of essential fatty acids. Just keep portions very small. Fat is extremely weak and has more than twice the calories per gram as protein and carbs.

What you eat has a direct effect on every thing from the way your body works to your mood to the amount of fat your body burns or stores.
