5) Skip the butter and other spreads - If you put butter on your potato and replace it with a non-fat, low-calorie butter replacement, or just go without you can save 200-300 calories a day.

6) Exercise for 15-20 minutes - Getting just a little bit of extra exercise every day can make or break your weight loss program. Commit to 15 minutes a day.
