The Low Fat Diet Introduction to Low Fat diets

A low fat diet recommends low fat options whenever possible (dairy products, meat etc.) plus regular consumption of starchy carbohydrates like: wholegrain bread, rice, pasta, vegetables, fruit, beans and cereals. With an average calorie intake of about 1200-1500 calories, per day, a low fat diet claims to offer effective, long term weight loss, more energy and better health.

The Low Fat diet claim

Reducing fat intake whilst eating more starchy carbohydrates, offers the safest and most reliable route to lasting weight loss and better health, especially when coupled with regular exercise.

What you eat on a low fat diet

A typical breakfast:

Glass of freshly squeezed orange

Large bowl of cereal with fat free milk

Toast with minimal margarine & preserves


A typical lunch:

Large sandwich with very lean meat and large salad with fat free dressing

Fat free yogurt

A typical dinner:

4oz Lean chicken with potatoes and two helpings vegetables

Advantages of a low fat diet

Low fat diets are usually quite filling, easy to digest and kind to both the heart and the immune system. Dieters typically report having extra energy, less indigestion and relatively easy weight loss.


Weight loss is steady but not fast. For the average person, this amounts to no more than 1.5-2 pounds, per week. However, most experts agree that faster weight loss is not sustainable. If you lose weight any faster, you will probably regain it just as fast.


Most experts agree that a low fat diet is the healthiest, most reliable way to lose weight. Highly recommended.
