No-Brainer Ways to Cut Out About 100 Calories a Day

Mon, 14 Jan 2008

A sampling from Lisa Young, RD

  • Eat only half a candy bar or energy bar (both pack a lot of calories).
  • Use 1 tablespoon of salad dressing instead of 2 (toss the salad really well and you won't even notice the difference).
  • Choose small 1-ounce pitas instead of the larger 2-ounce size.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter instead of 2 on bread or crackers.
  • Leave the last few bites of pasta on your plate.
  • Use one pat of butter instead of three on a baked potato.
  • Order a tall cappuccino instead of a grande the next time you visit Starbucks.

More ideas from RealAge

  • Scramble one egg for yourself, not two.
  • Make all your sandwiches open-faced -- omit the top slice of bread.
  • Skip the last three bites of any main course.
  • Snack on one fist-sized bunch of grapes, not two.
  • Grab five Hershey's dark chocolate Kisses instead of ten.
  • Choose a white wine spritzer over a 5-ounce glass of wine.
  • Have a 6-inch Roast Beef sandwich at Subway instead of a 6-inch Classic Steak & Cheese.
  • Order a small cup at Dairy Queen instead of a small cone.
