Slimmers ‘can still eat comfort foods this winter’
Slimmers can still eat their favourite comfort foods this winter and lose weight so long as they watch their calorie intake, the British Dietetic Association (BDA) has claimed.
Anna Raymond, a spokeswoman for the BDA, said that roast dinners are great winter food but have a bad name for being high in fat.
However, this does not have to be the case if people cook without lashings of oil and butter.
Ms Raymond recommended people measure out their oil properly as opposed to free-pouring and also swap roast potatoes for mash.
"Obviously don't eat the skin off the chicken because that is where all of the calories are. You have got a nice lean meat there without the skin," she added.
Earlier this month, research conducted by the Fat Panel showed that many people are confused about the different fats that their foods contain, with nearly 20 per cent thinking that saturated fat is good for their health.
Have you cut down on the amount of roast dinners you eat in order to lose weight and keep it off?
