Got this from researching the subject. Hope it helps. Heart Healthy Diet Total fats: 25-30% of total calories Saturated fats: less than 7% of total calories monounsaturated: less than 10% of total calories Polyunsaturated: less than 10% of total calories Cholesterol: less than 200 mg daily What foods are high in fat? Dairy foods (whole milk, ice cream, creams) Fatty red meats Butter is not only high in fat, but saturated fat as well Oils are fat, although some may have lower saturated fat. Egg yolks, which are particularly high in cholesterol. ProcessedCheese (unless Fat Free) Dos and Don’ts Trim the visible fat. Remove all of the skin from poultry. Limit organ meats (liver, kidney) Use lunch meats low in saturated fats ( Han, Chicken and Turkey) Make egg dishes with egg whites rather than egg yolks. Drink skim or 1% milk (if you drink milk) Don’t add fat as you cook. Instead of frying--- Use these techniques Roasting, Grilling or Baking (and use a rack to allow the fat to drain if possible), Cut down on added fats, such as salad dressing and butter. Try and use those which are low in saturated fats, and in moderation! Avoid Palm oil, Coconut oil , Butter, Lard, Margarine. instead use olive oil or canola or sunflower oil.
