100 measly calories
Posted Apr 01 2009 2:44pm
Did you know if you consume 100 fewer calories per day you could lose 10 pounds in a year? If you burn another 100 calories every day through exercise, you could lose up to 20 pounds per year.
Megan Larson, RD, LDN, a clinical dietitian with ARAMARK Healthcare at
Sinai Hospital of Baltimore
, offers these simple ideas for cutting 100 calories per day:
Put mustard instead of mayo on a sandwich.
Try a light or fat-free salad dressing instead of regular.
Substitute Canadian bacon for regular bacon.
Eat fresh fruit instead of juice or dried fruit.
Order thin crust pizza instead of pan pizza.
Order your coffee skinny with skim milk instead of cream.
Use a smaller bowl for your morning cereal.
Drink club soda with lime instead of regular soda.
Burn 100 more calories with these ideas:
Set your alarm 15 minutes earlier and go out for a morning walk.
Stand up and walk around while on the phone at work.
Take your kids out for a bike ride after dinner.
Join a tennis league and play several times each week.
Go for a 15-minute walk on your lunch break.
Get off the subway or bus a stop earlier and walk the extra distance
