Cast out the fat

Eating less fat overall is important for keeping our heart healthy and maintaining a healthy weight. As a rule, it’s best to have no more than 70g fat a day*. Most white fish and shellfish are low in fat so contribute very little to the maximum amount we should have in a day. For example, 140g baked cod provides just 1.7g fat, while 140g cooked prawns provides only 1.3g fat.
