What can I do to make a low fat diet part of my lifestyle?

You can do a number of things to make a low-fat diet part of your lifestyle. Changing what you eat and drink may be hard at first. Think of these changes as "lifestyle" changes, not just "diet" changes. You will need to make these changes part of your daily routine in order to feel better. To make a low-fat diet part of your lifestyle do the following:

  • Choose a variety of items on this diet to avoid getting tired of having the same items every day. Keep a list of items allowed on this diet in your kitchen to remind you about the diet.
  • Carry a list of items allowed on this diet to remind you about it when you are away from home. Tell your family or friends about this diet so that they can remind you about it.
  • Ask your healthcare provider, a dietitian or a nutritionist any questions you may have about your diet plan. A dietitian or nutritionist works with you to find the right diet plan for you. Dietitians and nutritionists can also help to make your new diet a regular part of your life.
