I was diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis over a year ago and was told to look into a low fat diet. Changing my diet is an overwhelming idea for me, but with my symptoms starting to emerge again I know I need to do it. Are there any recomendations you can give for easing into a low fat diet? This is from someone who loves to eat cheese, pasta, and fried foods.

Thinking about changing your diet can definitely be overwhelming, but it is worth it to improve your health.  I would suggest that you start by taking some small steps.  First, you mentioned that you love cheese.  Consider changing to a cheese made with 2% milk and then set a daily limit (i.e. one serving per day) so that you don't over-do it on such a high-fat food.  You also mentioned a love for fried foods.  You can start by cutting back on how often you consume fried foods.  So, if you eat it 3 times a week now, cut back to 1 or 2 times per week.  Then over time, you can cut back even more.  As for the pasta, it isn't high in fat, but what you put on it could be.  Stay away from butter and cream sauces and stick with tomato-based sauces instead. 

Remember that when you do consume high-fat foods, you want to limit your portion.  If you have a Hy-Vee nearby, I would definitely suggest contacting your local Hy-Vee dietitian to request a store tour to learn about lower fat options for meals and snacks to help you along the way.  Good luck!
