A: If you make the right choices, you can stay lean and keep out of the kitchen. Make 50 percent of your meals and snacks from easy-to-fix fresh ingredients such as fiber-rich cereals, precut vegetables, fruit and nonfat yogurt. When you do buy meals, scan nutrient panels and menus for...
Saturated fat Pick products with fewer than 5 grams, and skip dishes made with cream, butter or cheese.
Trans fat You want zero grams, so avoid fried foods and packaged items that list hydrogenated oils in the ingredients.
Sodium Skip processed meat and opt for frozen meals with fewer than 600 milligrams per serving.
