On today’s episode I’m sharing 5 simple ways to cut 100 calories from the meals you’re eating.
Although I truly believe in focusing on eating quality, real foods, if your goal is fat loss, it’s important that you also focus on being in a smart calorie deficit.
When I say smart, this means I DO NOT want you starving yourself or going on a crash diet.
I’m referring to making better food decisions, that will give you the nutrition you need to be healthy, while still putting you in a calorie deficit.
It all starts by making small, but smart choices.
Let’s get started:
When prepared with spices and natural, low calorie condiments like salsa and dijon mustard, vegetables are not only delicious, they’re filled with fiber to keep you feeling full without the added calories.
Next time you’re making an omelette, stuff it with steamed or grilled vegetables, not cheese.
Next time you’re making a stir fry, fill out your plate with sauteed spiced up vegetables, not rice or pasta.
If you’re not sure what spices to use, by a pre-mixed spice and add it to everything.
Next time you’re making a turkey sandwich, ditch the whole wheat wrap and grab a nutrient rich, low calorie piece of crispy romaine lettuce.
And rather than adding high calorie mayonnaise, give your wrap a kick with a squirt of sriracha mustard.
Damn that’s good.
Next time you’re watching a movie on the couch, dip your snack into a flavorful and low calorie salsa, not a typical high calorie creamy dip.
This way you can still enjoy the treat of eating the cracker or chip, but you’re saving a lot of calories by swapping out the high calorie dip.
Or reverse it…which leads me to…
So if you really like creamy dips like guacamole, swap out the crackers for a crunchy veggie like celery, bell peppers, carrots, etc.
This way you can still enjoy the guacamole, but you’re saving a lot of calories by eating vegetables instead of crackers.
Most people have no idea about proper portion sizes.
When I first started taking control of my health, weighing my food was a game changer.
It takes the guessing away and gives you incredible insight and education on how much food you’re actually feeding your body.
Most times, especially when it comes to carbohydrates, you’re consuming a lot more than your think.
This is where a food scale helps. Now I’m not saying you have to measure your food for the rest of your life.
But take at least the next 7 days and commit to weighing out your food.
After 7 days, you should have a decent grasp on food portion sizes.
It also measures in pounds, oz, grams, and milliliters.
Simply click the power button. Press the unit button to select the measuring size, then put the food on the scale. Done.
