Here’s a little help on Tips to Choose Lower-Fat Foods. It’s all from the Diabetic Living On Line website.
Tips to Choose Lower-Fat Foods
Watching your fat intake? Keep these better choices in mind when strolling the grocery aisles. You’ll be surprised by where you can reduce fat (hint: chocolate chip cookies make the cut).
Ways to Cut Fat
Looking to cut the amount of fat you eat? We’ve got simple swaps and eat-out tips that can help you make the healthiest choices at breakfast, dinner, and every munch in between. These tips save you calories, too — fat has about 9 calories per gram, so reducing fat can quickly cut calories.
Note: The fat grams shown in the following slideshow were gathered from packaged-food labels and U.S. Department of Agriculture nutrition data. Averages were used when multiple samples were used.
Choose Hummus Over Cream Cheese
Choose: 2 tablespoons purchased hummus (2 g fat)
Skip: 2 tablespoons regular cream cheese (10 g fat)
Cream cheese has five times more fat than hummus — yikes! Hummus is mostly chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans. Hummus usually contains a bit of healthy fat from sesame seed oil or olive oil. Cream cheese contains a lot more fat, and some is unhealthy saturated fat. Eating half of a whole wheat bagel with 1 tablespoon of hummus adds 1 gram of fat.

Some great tips on What You Need to Know About Fats, from the Diabetic Living On Line website.
What You Need to Know About Fats
In the past, eating low-fat seemed the way to go. Now experts say it’s fine to eat a bit more fat, but be sure to eat more good fats and less bad fats. We explain which fats fall into each category and why.
The Skinny on Fats
After some years of recommending that you rein in your fat-gram count to no more than about 30 percent of your calories, the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans, along with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Institute of Medicine, recommend you get 20–35 percent of your total daily calories from fat. If you were to eat about 1,500 calories a day, that would equate to 33–58 grams of total fats per day. Each serving of fat or oil, such as a teaspoon of butter, mayonnaise, or salad dressing, is roughly 5 grams of fat. Keep in mind that some of the fat you eat comes from what you put in and on foods, while other fat comes from what’s already in foods, such as meats, cheeses, and dairy foods…….
GOOD FATS: Monounsaturated Fat – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Olive oil is one of the richest sources of monounsaturated fat, which has long been known to help improve cholesterol levels and prevent cardiovascular disease. But that’s not all. Olive oil is also rich in antioxidants and other phytonutrients that may help fight inflammation, high blood pressure, and cancer……

Some great tips and ideas from the Diabetic Living On Line website on the 22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes. The link to the entire article is at the bottom of the post. http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/
These top food offenders contain high amounts of fat, sodium, carbs, and calories that may increase your risk of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, uncontrolled blood sugar, and weight gain. The good news is you can indulge in your favorite foods and still eat healthfully with our satisfying and delicious alternatives.
Think Twice Before Eating These Foods
At Diabetic Living, we believe that eating with diabetes doesn’t have to mean deprivation, starvation, or bland and boring foods. However, some foods really are best left on the table or in the store. Everyone — with diabetes or without — would be wise to avoid or limit the foods on this list because they are high in saturated fat, sodium, calories, or carbs, or might contain trans fats. High amounts of sodium and saturated fat can lead to heart disease, while excess sugars, high carb counts, and added calories can cause unwanted weight gain and blood sugar spikes.
If you see some of your favorite foods on this list, don’t despair: We’ve picked healthier options for you to choose from that taste great. So you can have your fries and eat them, too — provided they’re baked rather than deep-fat fried.
You walk into a restaurant and you’re feeling starved. A quick scan of the menu and there they are: nachos, one of your favorites. You order them as an appetizer and also order a meal. Unfortunately, most restaurant nacho orders equate to and often exceed an entire meal’s worth of calories, carbs, and fat. For example, a regular order of Chili’s Classic Nachos has 830 calories, 59 grams of fat, and 39 grams of carb.
Top your nachos with heart-healthy avocados!
Chili’s Classic Nachos (regular order)*
59 g total fat
31 g saturated fat
1,630 mg sodium
39 g carbohydrate
Taco Bell Nachos Supreme*
23 g total fat
4.5 g saturated fat
690 mg sodium
44 g carbohydrate
30 mg cholesterol
You don’t need to give up nachos to eat healthfully. Make a few changes to the basic recipe, such as using reduced-fat cheeses and baked tortilla chips like we do in our Loaded Nachos recipe. Finally, make the nachos your meal, not your appetizer….
A simple cup of joe with a little milk or even half-and-half can be a low-calorie beverage perfect for a person with diabetes. But many coffee-shop drinks rival decadent desserts for their high calorie, carb, and fat contents. For example, a 16-ounce Starbuck’s White Chocolate Mocha (with whipped cream and 2 percent milk) comes in at 470 calories and 63 grams of carb. Similarly, a medium Dunkaccino contains 350 calories, while the large size has almost 500 calories.
Or, choose tea instead!
Starbuck’s White Chocolate Mocha (with whipped cream) *
18 g total fat
12 g saturated fat
0 mg sodium
63 g carbohydrate
50 mg cholesterol
16 g total fat
13 g saturated fat
320 mg sodium
51 g carbohydrate
10 mg cholesterol
There are equally satisfying (and cheaper!) beverage alternatives that will help you keep your healthy eating plan on track. Try one of these:…..
