I would suggest looking over your nutrition tracker.You need to find out WHY you're going over your fats.I struggled with my fats goal for my first month.You also need to realize fat isn't bad...you just have to choose better fats,then you won't eat as much and you'll feel fuller.For example,for my snack I used to eat oreos or some type of cookie.That would raise my fat dramatically,especially because in an hour I'd be ready for more.So I started to switch out my highest fat snack for peanut butter.Even though it was still considerably fatty,it was good,filling fat.It'll help with your protein goal too.Then I started working on finding other foods that were more filling,because they're better for you.I switched out my typical fattening breakfast for 2 pieces of turkey bacon,one egg,and 2 pieces of high fiber bread.Planning your meals can make all the difference!

Umm like the previous posts say choose lean meat. I try to get a good source of protein in each meal I have. Choose white meats like chicken breast and turkey as opposed to red meats because they tend to have a higher fat content. Also if you like fish tuna is great but limit oily fish, fish such as basa is quite cheap. Also have whole wheat pasta/bread and brown rice as they are also a lot lower in fat and also quite high in proteins. Things such as greek yogurt and cottage cheese are also good to have as snacks. Oh and just eat lots of fresh fruits and drink lotsa water!

Low on protein? That's easy for me! I have 3 cups of skim milk a day (1 at each meal) which totals to like 24g of protein. Every breakfast I have egg whites, which is like another 8-10g per 3-4oz. (I have high cholesterol so I skip the yolk, haha). Then all I need is like a serving or two of chicken breast, fish, or turkey to finish off my protein needs. Low in fat? Hm. Well Lay low on the cheese, or get fat-free/reduced-fat. Go easy on the desserts (smoothies are a good alternative). That's just my advice. Good luck!
