Shedding 100 calories can be tough for some people, especially for busy people who do not have much time to exercise. While struggling to make time to exercise, it is actually quite easy to avoid adding more calories. How to do that? Simple. Just by watching what you put into your mouth:
- Instead of drinking sweetened fresh juice, eat fresh fruit. Typical juice has about 165 calories whereas a medium orange has only 62 calories.
- Dried fruit has more calories. For instance, 1/2 cup of dried apricots have 156 calories whereas an apricot has only 74 calories. So, fresh fruit is always better.
- Drink skinny coffee. A 12-ounce skinny Starbucks Caffe Latte has 90 calories whereas the normal 12-ounce white chocolate mocha latte has nearly 400 calories.
- Instead of using 2 pieces of bread, make your sandwich open-faced. A slice of whole wheat bread is anywhere between 70 and 90 calories, depending on the density of the bread.
- If you want to have a caffeinated beverage to go with your meal, make it an unsweetened tea instead of a Coke.
- Try dressing your salad with just lemon juice and skip the olive oil, which clocks in at 119 calories a tablespoon.
- Scramble 4 egg whites instead of 2 full eggs to cut 80 calories.
- Split a 20 oz. bottle of regular soda with a friend and you will save 120 calories.
- Go for diet soda instead of 1 cup of regular soda to cut 97 calories.
- Instead of 1 regular beer, replace it with light beer and you save 50 calories.
- Taking away the skin from a serving of poultry trims 100 calories. If you want to keep the chicken moist, you can do the peeling after baking or broiling.
- Enjoy steamed rice rather than fried rice.
- Buy tuna packed in water rather than tuna packed in oil.
- Steam veggies like broccoli or asparagus rather than sauteing them in oil or butter.
