It also provides a brief overview of vital diet and exercise principles, and target levels of fat consumption for men and women at varying body weights. Once you understand the role of dietary fat, you are liberated forever from the need to cut calories or even restrict your overall intake of food. Spend a few minutes a day checking the fat levels in various foods and making sensible choices, and you are well on your way to a longer, happier, and healthier life.
