BLURB/FLYLEAF: Low-fat eating is not just for people who are trying to lose weight. Everyone can benefit from keeping dietary fat to 30 percent or less of total calories. Not only does a low-fat diet help prevent obesity but studies show that it also reduces the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and some types of cancer.
This cookbook is a realistic approach to trimming fat from your diet. It can help you develop an enjoyable, nutritious eating style to follow for a lifetime. If you want to eat healthier foods but don't want to sacrifice taste, this book is for you. All of the recipes are lower in total fat than similar traditional recipes, with the majority having less than 30 percent of calories from fat and less than 10 percent of calories from saturated fat.
