Low Fat Diet

What is a low fat diet?

For a regular health diet, it is recommended that of the total calories eaten, no more than 30% should come from fat.

What are the conditions that are improved by a low fat diet?

Gallbladder diseases (either before or after the gallbladder is removed); delayed stomach emptying (gastroparesis) a conditioning which the stomach empties food into the intestine too slowly; diarrhea often aggravated by eating fatty food; malabsorption of nutrients with diseases of the pancreas and small intestine; and fatty liver.

What are the overall ways to start?

Be careful how foods are prepared. Trim all visible fat from meats. Bake, steam or broil meats and fish instead of frying. Toppings for potatoes and pastas should contain no fat above the three allowed daily servings. This low-fat diet should be used until the underlying medical condition is controlled or corrected.
