Eating Healthy
  Learning About Fats
Some fat in your diet is essential for good health, but Americans get up to 40 percent of their total caloric intake from fat. Nutrition experts say that's too much.
  Making Healthy Food Choices
For good nutrition, make half the grains you eat each day whole grains. Choose a variety of fruits and vegetables; keep your protein lean; and don't forget calcium-rich foods.
  Cooking for a Low-Fat Lifestyle
With a little experimentation in the kitchen, you'll find little difference in taste between the original dishes and your modified lighter ones.
