DO include healthy fats in your diet such as walnuts, almonds, olive oil, flax seeds, flax seed oil (supplement – not to cook with), and avocado.

Dairy is good if it is low or non fat such as skim milk, low or non fat cottage cheese, low or non fat yogurt and low or non fat cheese.

Whatever your choices, we wish you the best of luck with your diet.
