Nobody likes the idea of going on a diet, but if you need to cut back then consider making simple food swaps in your usual daily diet before doing anything drastic. You may find with a few alternative choices you could save enough calories to drop those unwanted lbs WITHOUT going on a traditional diet!
Breakfast – swap your usual bowl of granola with semi-skimmed milk for a bowl of porridge oats topped with a handful of fresh berries and save 150 calories.
Morning snack – swap your usual mid-morning snack of 2 digestive biscuits for an apple and you’ll save 70 calories.
Lunch – swap your usual supermarket bought chicken pasta salad for a chicken salad sandwich and yourself save 195 calories.
Dinner – Swap the rice with your chilli con carne for an equal amount of cauliflower rice and save 100 calories.
Late night snack – Swap your late-night chocolate fix for the snack size equivalent of the same bar and save 105 calories.
That’s a total calorie saving of 830 calories over the course of just 1 day! If you were to make these changes for an entire week you could save a whopping 5,810 calories which equates to 1 ½ lbs of body fat. Go, on – give it a try!
