Patients are becoming more conscious of the benefits of a calorie-controlled diet, with one in two people in the UK making choices based on dietary benefits. Over 50% ‘look behind the label’, to check information on fat, sugar, salt or calories.[i]

Many of us have become accustomed to glugging unchecked amounts of oil into our pan and adding knobs of butter to our food whilst cooking. However, such behaviours can seriously affect our weight and overall health. The good news is that we can all make simple yet very effective changes to the way we cook to dramatically cut our fat, saturated fat, and calorie intake. In turn, this can help reduce our chances of becoming overweight or obese, and developing high cholesterol, heart disease and other health problems.

Here are my top tips for curbing fat intake:


 

 Dr. Sarah Jarvis

Are saturated fats still ‘bad’?

"With so much controversy in the media about the relative risks of fats and carbs, it's hardly surprising our patients get confused."

"My view is clear - just because we're becoming more aware of the dangers of refined carbohydrates, we can't afford to take our eye off the ball where saturated fats are concerned."

"The British Heart Foundation continues to recommend choosing low fat options where possible, and so should we.  There is strong evidence warning against a diet high in saturated fats - and despite longstanding healthcare professional advice, the average Briton's intake of saturated fats is 20% higher than government guidelines."
