Dear Christie
Seeing that fat is a very energy-dense food supplying 37 kJ per gram, it is indeed a good idea to cut down on fatty foods and alcohol (29 kJ/gram) when trying to lose weight. Carbohydrates provide 16 kJ/gram and protein 17 kJ/gram. However, the human body does still require some so-called essential fatty acids, so even on a strict low-fat diet, it is necessary to have about 3 tablespoons of healthy oil such as olive, canola, or avocado oil, which you can use as salad dressings and for food preparation.
Best regards
