100 Calories.

Simple Tips to Cut 100 Calories

  • Drink 2  cups of fat free milk instead of 2 cups of whole milk (you still get the same amount of Calcium and Vitamin D)
  • Swap 8 oz. regular soda with 8 oz. diet soda (or even better water)
  • Trade two tablespoons of regular butter or margarine for two tablespoons of light whipped butter or spray butter
  • When having pie or desserts with a crust, take off the bottom crust and don't eat it.
  • Instead of chocolate syrup on an ice cream, use fresh berries or other in-season fruit of your choice as a topping
  • Enjoy salsa rather than cheese dip with tortilla chips
  • Split a small bag of French fries with a friend
  • Sorbet or sherbet is a refreshing alternative to premium ice cream
  • Order thin crust pizza vs. pan or thick crust pizza
  • Order baked potatoes with only one high-calorie topping (butter, sour cream, cheese), not all three
  • Choose minestrone and other broth-based soups over cream-based soups
  • Choose red sauce rather than cream-based sauces on pasta
  • Remove the skin from chicken pieces
  • Follow the low fat directions on the box when making brownies, cakes and cookies
  • Omit or decrease by half the butter or margarine in boxed macaroni and cheese
  • Leave the cheese off of sandwiches and hamburgers
  • Leave 10 French fries uneaten on your next order
  • Eat an open-faced sandwich (eliminate 1 slice of bread)
  • Ask for the salad dressing on the side rather than on your salad
Remember cutting 500 calories a day(from either your diet, or exercise) is the equation for 1 pound weightloss a week.  Every 100 calories count so do the small things that will add up to make a big difference. Your waistline will thank you for it.
