Are you tired of diets that leave you feeling bored, ravenous and deprived?
Are you fed up with fad diets that are impossible to stay on?
Have you had it with years of yo-yo dieting?
There is a simpler, easier, saner way.
Small changes and slow weight loss are the way to go because they lead to lasting change. And isn’t that what you really want – to lose the weight easily and then keep it off without struggle?
There are hundreds of easy weight loss tips I want to share but for today, let’s start with just one.
Easy Weight Loss Tip #1 – Make one small change in your diet that removes about 100 calories each day.
That’s it. Just eat 100 calories less each day.
At the end of a year, you will be 10 pounds slimmer!
Wouldn’t it great to be 10 pounds lighter with such minimal effort?
With this simple realistic approach you don’t have to make any drastic changes to your diet, eliminate a whole category of foods, subscribe to expensive diet plans, or eat special foods to lose weight.
You also don’t have to go hungry or change your lifestyle in any significant way.
It is the kind of change and thinking that leads to life long positive results.
With one simple 100 calorie deduction you are on the way to a happier, healthier you!
I am sure you have heard about the power of compounding interest – By making small deposits to your savings account over time you are able to accumulate real wealth.
Well, it works with your weight too.
Eat a little too much each day, and over time you will pack on the pounds OR eat a little less each day, and slowly steadily the pounds melt away.
Just little subtractions of 100 calories a day over time can result in significant weight loss easily and effortlessly.
There are so many ways to deduct 100 calories painlessly. You can choose whatever works best for you.
Most naturally slim women I know, give up a slice or two of bread or glass of wine until they have lost the weight they want, but the choice is completely yours, which is another reason this easy weight loss tip is so great.
You are free to make the deduction in whatever way works best for you.
Here are some ideas to get you started. I have primarily focused on starchy, sugary foods and snacks since they tend to be a food group we often overeat.
Some foods that contain about 100 calories that you might want to deduct:
- Slice of bread
- Glass of soda, beer or wine
- 1/4 cup granola
- 1-2 rice cakes
- 1 ounce of most any snack food
- 5 Triscuits or similar crackers
- 10 potato chips/corn chips
- 2 Oreos or other cookies
- .75 ounces of chocolate candy
- Slice of cheese
- 1/2 cup rice or pasta
- 2 tablespoons of jelly or jam
- 1/2 small order fast food french fries
- 1 tablespoon mayonaise or peanut butter
Do you have something that would be easy to give up that would create a 100 calorie deficit in your current daily eating routine?
If you do it for a year, you will be ten pounds slimmer! How easy is that?
