Low Fat Foods for a Healthier, Happier You



Low Fat Foods for a Healthier, Happier You

There’s often a stigma associated with low fat food. It tastes weird. It’s bland, etc.

Forget everything you thought you knew about low fat diet food. BistroMD, a low fat diet food company, will change your perception on weight-loss. Our low fat food is anything but tasteless and bland because with bistroMD you don’t have to sacrifice taste for nutrition. We give you the ability to once again enjoy what you’re eating and trust that every bite will be more than just delicious—it is also perfectly designed for healthy weight-loss.

But what exactly does low fat mean?

According to the FDA, foods labeled "low fat" must contain less than 3 grams of fat per serving. Not to be confused with portion size, a food's serving size is considered the amount listed on the food label, not portion size, which is the amount you choose to eat in a sitting.

 

The benefits of a low fat diet

 

A low fat diet not only reduces the risk of heart disease, but also protects the body against harmful intruders. Naturally low fat foods tend to be high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and phytochemicals. According to the USDA, fiber can lower cholesterol and blood pressure. And antioxidants prevent diseases by destroying harmful chemicals called free radicals.

The cons of a low fat diet

 

Low fat food labels can be extremely misleading. In the supermarket you can find low fat ice cream, candy, junk food, etc. Some people think eating more of these foods is okay because they’re “low fat,” but any excess calories, whether they’re from full fat or low fat foods, can contribute to weight gain.

Another drawback is that a low fat diet is easy to obsess over. A diet too low in fat can cause you to miss out on some important dietary nutrients such as mineral zinc, some B vitamins and certain essential fatty acids that your body needs. You also need some fat in your diet in order to help your body absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.

The benefits of a low fat diet delivery program like bistroMD

Some people try a low fat diet and think the less fat they eat, the more weight they’re going to lose. So they deprive themselves of any form of fat they can think of. Unfortunately, they don’t accomplish anything. In fact, they end up making their body do more work because it’s trying to overcompensate for the lack of vitamins and nutrients it hasn't been receiving.

With bistroMD, we portion out your food so you’re eating as much food as you should be eating for healthy and successful weight-loss. Our program was developed by Dr. Cederquist, a bariatric physician with over 20 years of experience in the industry who makes sure that every bite you take of our delicious entrees follows this proven approach for healthy weight-loss. Our program provides 1,100-1,400 calories daily with 40-50% total caloric intake from lean, adequate protein, 20-25% of calories from healthy fats and 30-35% from complex carbohydrates. 

If this sounds like a good fit for you, we offer two programs: a men and a women’s program. We give you the option to receive five-or-seven-days’ worth of delicious and healthy entrees delivered to your door. The two programs range from $130-$160 and tasty snacks are also an additional option at just $1.50 a snack! The number of snacks you’ll receive depends on your gender.
