Well, according to my sites statistics this morning, yesterday was THE busiest day ever for peaceandfitness.com. While that is exciting, it also comes with a lot of spammers so I spent a good amount of time this morning, deleting comments from people who just want to get the link to their site EVERYWHERE. Not complaining, just mentioning because it did take a slice out of my morning computer time. I do like to make sure that anything you click on this site is safe.
Last week we talked about ways to burn an extra 100 calories, but what if you just want to eat a 100 fewer calories? Here are some easy ways to shave 100 at a time…eat fresh fruit instead of drinking juice, try drinking club soda instead of regular soda, opt for the non-cream based soups, put fresh fruit in yogurt instead of the kind with the fruit already mixed in, and opt for the nonfat yogurt instead of the custard style, choose red sauce over cream-based pasta sauce (and opt for the whole wheat or whole grain pasta instead of the traditional kind), ordering a lunch size meal instead of a dinner size will probably cut a lot more than 100 calories, as will sharing a full sized meal with your dining companion, limit yourself to one glass of wine, instead of two (or more)…you get the idea.
There are lots of ways to cut 100 calories here and there along your day. Combine a few of those simple changes and burn an extra 100 or 200 a day and you are easily on your way to losing weight safely and without feeling too deprived or without having to kill yourself for hours in the gym. Making a 500 calorie difference a day will result in about 4 pounds of weight lost over the course of a month.
I am off to start burning some weekend calories 🙂 See you at the gym, or right back here at peaceandfitness.com. Have a marvelous Monday! Way to win em, Miami Heat!
