Some simple ways to cut fat

Over the last two years, I have been on a quest to lose weight and maintain my weight loss. Some of the keys to weight loss are complex - setting up a calorie and nutritionally-balanced diet, setting up regular exercise. But some of the keys are finding little tricks that work for you. Mens Health has up a good collection of tips that may be useful to anyone looking to lose a few pounds or keep them off.

Slice Fat from Pizza
Always order your pizza with double tomato sauce and light cheese. Men who eat a lot of tomato products tend to have less prostate cancer—probably because tomatoes are a rich source of lycopene. Reducing the mozzarella by just one-third (you won't miss it) will save you 20 grams (g) of fat per pie. That's as much as in a McDonald's Quarter Pounder.

Order the Steak Fries
If you love french fries, always order the steak fries. Large-cut fries don't absorb as much oil as shoestring or curly fries, which lowers the fat count.
