Actually, a lot of ethnic foods are traditionally low in fat and calories until they get "Americanized." For instance, heavy cheese and deep frying aren't traditional to Mexican food.

Hi it depends on the dish, what is adding the calories, if it is a salad with meat or chicken in it reduce or remove the meat, same with other high calorie foods

does anyone know of any idea how to decrease calories for ethnic foods? greek salad and other type of stuff?

I am finding that decreased calories is good for me, but I have no idea how to "remake" the dishes with lower calories and lots of flavors.

any ideas?
