A South African Guide to Low-fat Shopping, Cooking and Eating Out.
Many people think they have cut out all fats from their diet, and wonder why they still gain weight. They eat muesli instead of bacon and eggs, rusks and digestive biscuits instead of normal biscuits, olive oil instead of sunflower oil, and chicken instead of red meat. What they don't realise is that there are hidden fats as well as visible fats. Many of the hidden fats are in a form that is unhealthy. "The Lean Aubergine" is all about identifying and avoiding these hidden fats. In their introduction, dieticians Karen Protheroe and Moira van der Linde outline why a low-fat lifestyle is necessary, and what it will achieve. This is followed by a shopping guide, explaining how to read food labels, with detailed shopping lists identifying the low-fat food items in the major food outlets, and a recipe section giving tips on cooking as well as low-fat recipes. Finally, there is a restaurant guide that looks at popular chain restaurants and other eating establishments nationwide and offers advice on what to eat when dining out.
