Three Easy Suggestions for Losing Weight

Daily eating habits are crucial to weight control. We don’t become overweight because we have the occasional eating binge. The extra calories we eat on these occasions do less damage than we think. The truth is, we gain weight because of our daily eating habits. It is these daily high-calorie food choices that do the real damage. So one way to reduce weight is to choose lower-calorie foods for your everyday meals or snacks. Here are three examples:

  1. Lose an Easy Six Pounds of Fat – Choose 1 cup skim milk (90 calories) instead of 1 cup whole milk (150 calories). Do this once a day and save: 21,900 calories per year. This is equivalent to 6.25 pounds of weight.
  2. Lose Another Easy Six Pounds of Body Fat – Choose 6 oz light, fat-free yogurt (80 calories) instead of 6 oz full-fat yogurt (190 calories). Do this 4 times a week and save: 22,880 calories per year. This is equivalent to: 6.5 pounds of weight.
  3. Lose An Easy Eleven Pounds of Body Fat – Choose 3 Cups Airpopped Popcorn (90 calories) instead of 3 Cups Microwaved Caramel Popcorn (280 calories). Do this 4 times a week and save: 39,520 calories per year. This is equivalent to: 11.3 pounds of weight.

 

Even if you follow only one or two of these suggestions, you will save yourself between 6 and 12 pounds of fat each year.

 

Choosing Lower-Calorie Options

If you already eat low-fat dairy food, or if you don’t usually eat popcorn, design your own swaps. Simply select a food you DO eat regularly, then look for a lower-calorie alternative. It’s not rocket science, but making small changes to your daily eating habits can make a huge difference to your weight over the course of time.
