(HealthDay News) -- Cutting back on dietary fat can help you lose weight and improve your heart health.

The Cleveland Clinic suggests how to choose lower-fat foods:

  • Read product labels, and opt for those titled nonfat, low-fat or reduced fat.
  • Focus on total fat consumed for the day, instead of fat in a specific food.
  • Stick to lean cuts of meat. Aim to eat less than 6 ounces of meat per day.
  • Choose low-fat proteins, such as tofu, dried beans and peas, low-fat dairy products and water-packed tuna.
  • Drink 1 percent milk or skim milk, and eat reduced-fat or nonfat spreads and cheeses.
