Helpful Hints for Cutting Calories
Reducing caloric intake is one of the quickest ways to drop a few extra pounds. However, anyone who has ever tried cutting calories and going on a diet likely knows just how difficult this can be. While it may seem easy to limit caloric intake, some of the most popular foods, drinks, and even condiments are jam-packed with unhealthy fats, sugars, and calories. In order to cut out a few extra calories, it may be beneficial to try some of these helpful tips.
Avoid Drinks with High Calorie Counts
Avoiding calories is hard enough, so spare some extra calories by cutting out drinks that are high in sugar such as:
Instead of these drinks, it may be helpful to opt for lower-calorie drinks such as water, coffee, or tea. Just be sure to avoid adding sugar and other additives, such as creamer or too much honey, to these drinks so that they remain low-calorie drink options.
Use Less Sauce
Ketchup, barbecue sauce, mayonnaise, salad dressings, and other condiments, especially pre-processed ones, are often full of calories. In order to miss out on a few extra calories, consider limiting the amount of sauces or condiments used on dishes.
Cook Meals at Home
Takeout food or processed meals from grocery stores are often high in calorie counts and contain extra sugars and fats that may not even be noticed on an ingredients list. Cooking at home allows people to better control what goes into – or doesn’t go into – their food.
