You don’t have to be a Master Chef to cook healthy foods. By using some basic healthy cooking techniques, you can reduce the amount of fat and oil going in to your food, and therefore reduce the impact on your diet. Each tablespoon of oil you use when frying adds more than 100 calories, and around 14 grams of fat, to your meal. Although some of this fat is the good kind, it’s important not to overdo it. By switching to some healthier cooking methods, you can eliminate some of this extra fat, making it better for your diet and your overall health.

If you use some of these methods more often, you can make a huge difference to your weight loss plans, as well as discovering some delicious new ways to enjoy your food.
