We all want to reduce our Calories, but no one likes to restrict their foods, try starting with these hints to change what you eat, without the pain of dieting!
1. Eat Dark Chocolate instead of Milk:
Dark Chocolate is lower in sugar and Milk fats, it is also less Moorish, so easier to stop at a few squares instead of eating the whole block.
2. Swap your fries for baked Potato:
We all love fries, but the oil adds more calories than we need. A yummy alternative is to cut a potato or sweet potato into Wedges, spray with some coconut oil and season with herbs, garlic, paprika or sea salt and bake them in the oven.
3. Don't drink your calories:
500ml of soft drink can contain around 200 Calories, as well having a huge amount of added sugar. Sweetened Fruit Juice, alcohol, flavoured Milk are all calorie dense. Carry a bottle of water with you where ever you go and get into the habit of drinking it throughout the day, if you are not thirsty, you won't be tempted with a Coke mid afternoon.
4. Up your fluids:
Are you really hungry, or just thirsty? Check by consuming water before you go for a snack. Hydration helps satiety.
5. Change your snacks:
If you are out and about, instead of grabbing a chocolate bar popping in to the bakery for a snack, go to the supermarket. Buy a punnet of Berries or some cut up Carrot or Vegetable sticks. This will save you heaps of calories and you will feel better for it!
