Marilyn, that's fantastic! I'm so proud of you. I would say that this isn't a "no fat" diet, but a "low fat" diet. By eating fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes you will naturally be getting about 10% of your calories coming from fat which is great, especially for blood sugar control. Sounds like you're doing a great job! As a side note, the only reason the percentage of calories from fat would go up in your diet is if you cook with oil, go out to eat often, rely heavily on processed foods made with oil, or eat avocados, nuts, seeds, and olives. For some these foods can be eaten in small amounts, but should be kept minimal in order to stay close to about 10% of your overall calories coming from fat each day.
Again, great work!
