💥6 EASY EAYS TO CUT CALORIES💥
🍦Think you need to cut some calories but not sure where to begin? Well Ive got you covered. Cutting some calories out of your diet may not be as hard as you think. -
🍗Cook at home - Having complete control over what you are cooking and eating is 100% the best way to cut calories. You can choose how to cook your food and if you are meticulously tracking, you will know exactly what you are eating. But, hey, we all like to go out to eat-it’s part of our lives, so enjoy it and know that you can dial it in at home
🥗Using a smaller plate has been shown to actually eat less.- By putting a smaller portion on a larger plate ,your mind is going to think it needs more because it looks so small. Putting that same portion on a smaller plate, your mind thinks you are eating more. -
🍞You know that scrumptious looking bread basket they always bring you before your meal? Literally can add 300-500 calories on BEFORE you even start your meal. So if you are eating out, you can always pass on the bread basket or, just tell the waiter no thanks on the bread, and it won’t even appear -
☕️Zero calorie drinks can save you a ton of calories. Instead of the 150 calories from a coke, try seltzer water. It’s still got the bubbly, comes in flavors, and gives you the sense of drinking something “special”, not just water. Black coffee is another zero calorie drink staple. Both of those will take the edge off of hunger too.
🥙Use seasonings instead of sauces - Sauces are a huge source of calories - especially when eating out because restaurants tend to really pile it on. So if cooking at home, try some seasonings instead. Recently a friend sent me a box of spicy seasonings from The Spice House.. It is amazing. I love hot and spicy, and this box has a great variety. Try some new spices to change some things up. Almost zero calories and a lot of flavor
🥦Eat your veggies. Pile em on. So many veggies are almost “free” in calories.
