Choose food that contains minimal amounts of unhealthy fats, such as trans fats and saturated fats.
Foods that are high in trans fats include those made with “partially hydrogenated oils” such as pastries, confectionaries, fried food, pizza and cookies. Foods that are high in saturated fats include lard, fatty meat, cakes, fast food, pizza and full-fat dairy products.
However, your diet may include moderate amounts of healthy fats, such as polyunsaturated, monounsaturated and Omega-3 fats. These should still be taken in moderation to prevent weight gain.
