Trim the Fat

Keep the fat to a minimum. If you enjoy meat, choose leaner meats, trim the fat from thicker cuts and cut away any skin from chicken. Meats with less fat will have less marbling in them and white around the outside.

Fish also contains less fat than red meat. The recommendation is to eat at least two servings of fish per week. Fish that has been wrapped in aluminum foil and then cooked produces less juice and therefore is likely to produce less carcinogenic fumes. As a bonus, the aluminum foil adds extra protection from any possible dripping.
