The fat in foods you eat can make you fat! While too much of any kind of fat can make you gain weight, small amounts of fats are needed for good health. These better fats are called polyunsaturates and monounsaturates. Polyunsaturated fats are found in vegetable oils such as corn, safflower, soybean and sesame. Monounsaturated fats are found in olive, canola and peanut oils, and in avocado. Small amounts of these better fats can be eaten daily.
Saturated fats, sometimes called bad fats, are found in meats, dairy products and certain oils such as coconut, palm and palm kernel. bad fats are also in margarine, vegetable shortening and processed peanut butter. All Bad fats may promote poor cardiovascular health and should be avoided.
Here are some practical suggestions for reducing the amount of fat that you eat in your diet. Eat daily from the green light section of food choices, while being more cautious with the Yellow light foods.Consume red light food choices only rarely while following your weight-loss plan.

The word carbohydrate is a nutritional term for what is more commonly known as starch or sugar. We need to eat a certain amount of carbohydrates because they provide calories or energy for the body. There are three major types of carbohydrates: complex, refined and simple. Complex or whole-grain carbohydrates are the ones we should eat for good health. They are relatively low in fat while rich in vitamins, minerals and fibers. Examples of complex carbohydrates are starchy foods such as potatoes, yams, corn, whole-wheat bread and pasta, brown rice, beans, peas and lentils.
Refined carbohydrates include white bread, white rice, pasta, cookies, pies, cakes and most baked desserts. It is best to avoid these types of carbohydrates in general because they are high in calories and low in essential nutrients. Simple carbohydrates are also known as sugars. Some simple carbohydrates are good to eat such as whole, fresh fruits or small amounts of fruit juice. Other simple carbohydrates should be avoided while on a weight-loss program. Examples of these include white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, honey, maple syrup, molasses, malt syrup, jams and jellies.
It is easy to overeat both refined and simple carbohydrates. Since the total number of calories is important while following a weight-loss regimen, it is recommended to emit these types of foods.
Eat daily from the green light section, limit the foods from the Yellow light section to once or twice a week, and mostly avoid the red light sections while trying to lose weight.
