Hmmm--that is a very good question. In past weight loss attempts I probably would have agonized over this (I was keeping total fat under 10 grams ). Now, I don't think I'd really worry about it all that much.

Perhaps add a "pat" of butter or small amount of olive oil to your food log if you want to account for the traces of fat that the veggies absorb. I'd assume you're logging the poultry using the correct cooking method so that will add some fat to your log anyway.

This is my two cents.

47 M 5'8"

May 4, 2010...... 440? lbs. (Start FitDay Size 60 Jeans)
June 19, 2010.... 393 lbs. (First Weigh-in)
June 19, 2011.... 229 lbs. (164 lbs. gone in one year :-)
Current Weight... 185 lbs. (Size 36 Jeans)

Next Goal 169 lbs. (07/04/12)
Ultimate Goal 165 lbs. (12/31/12)

The best exercises for weight loss are Fork Putdowns and Table Pushaways.
