(NAPSA) - Good news for dieters and other health conscious folks. You don't have to stop eating snacks to have a healthful diet, you just have to start snacking smart.
A diet containing balanced fats provides approximately equal proportions of the three principal fatty acids: polyunsaturates, monounsaturates and saturates. It avoids the use of trans fatty acids in foods and includes regular exercise.
