Also, we must have fats as a protective food affainst certain diseases. Milk should not be eliminated from the reducing diet ; only cream may be removed since it is high in calories; but skim milk, cottage cheese, lean meat and poached eggs should be retained.

Milk is the best source of caleiuarn, and a good source of phosphorus. Cheese, dried beans, green leafy vegetables and other veg- etables, such as cabbage, carrots, caul- iflower, celery, are good calcium foods.
