Ask yourself the following:
* Is fat a major ingredient?
Read food labels carefully. Go easy on products made with any ingredients that is high in saturated fat and cholesterol (e.g. oils,lard, and cheese).
* Is there more than one type of fat in the product?
When you see several high-fat ingredients on the label, the product is more likely to have too much fat.
* Is there serving size appropriate?
When trying to figure out the fat content of a food product, make sure that you use a serving size that is close to what you would really eat. This is often more than what's indicated on the label.
