CAKE as the general rule,the lighter and whiter the cake,the lower its fat content.Go for a sponge or angel cake rather than a rich yellow butter cake.Try making cake with wholemealflour to increase the fibre content and use half whole eggs and half eggwhites.Dried fruit cakes tend to be verry moist and are made with less butter.

Example: Muffins For healthy home-made muffins,use wholemeal self raising flour to add fibre and replace the fat wiyh half low -fat youghurt ang half orange juice..

CHEESE Whichever way you look at it,cheese is a fairly concentrated source of saturated fat.Although these are reduced-fat brand available,some people find that they taste bland.Do remember that cheese is agood source of calcium and protien and there is no need to cut it out of the diet completely
