Cut 250 Calories

Cut 250 Calories at Breakfast

  • Trade a reduced-fat blueberry muffin for instant oatmeal topped with 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries. Bonus: You'll stay satisfied all morning.
  • Measure out your breakfast cereal; overestimating by just 1/3 cup can add 100 calories.
  • Enjoy it with a 16-ounce chai latte with skim milk rather than a green tea latte with 2 percent.

Cut 250 Calories at Lunch

  • Pick turkey over tuna in your 6-inch sub.
  • At the salad bar, reach for shredded Parmesan instead of cheddar and skip the bread.
  • Nuke a Lean Cuisine chicken parm instead of having one delivered.

Cut 250 Calories at Dinner

  • Make your own salad dressing using low-sodium, fat-free broth in place of 2 tablespoons of oil.
  • Having fajitas? Fill up one tortilla rather than three, then eat the rest of your fixings with a fork.
  • Sub black beans for refried and hold the side of Mexican rice.
  • Order filet mignon instead of a New York strip steak.
  • Opt for broccoli chicken over sweet-and-sour, and for steamed brown rice, not fried.

Cut 250 Calories from a Snack

  • Bite into a chocolate-covered strawberry rather than a chocolate chip cookie.
  • Skip the small movie-theater popcorn and bring your own 1-ounce bag of Lay's.
  • Switch from juice to Crystal Light twice a day.
  • At the mall, curb a craving for a soft pretzel with a 100-calorie pretzel pack.

Two months ago a good friend of mine recommended me a book about how to burn fat without following starving diets, by only changing foods and eating habits without needing excessive exercises. There are foods having good fats to burn bad fats on the body. I followed the advices in the book and I lost 15 lbs by eating normally but changing only what my body needs. I am very satisfied with the book and recommend to you as well. You may reach it at :
