Calorie counting is an effective method for losing excess weight. The average woman needs to eat 2,000 calories a day, while the average man needs 2,500 calories. Eating more calories than you need will result in weight gain, while eating less calories than you burn will result in weight loss. Here are 10 simple ways to cut 100 calories from your diet.
1. Switch to diet drinks
The average can of cola, or other sugary carbonated drink, contains around 140 calories. The average can of diet cola contains less than 10 calories. Substituting your regular can of cola with the diet version can cut up to 130 calories.
2. Try bacon medallions
Two rashers of grilled bacon contain around 160 calories. Bacon medallions are simply the oval shaped part of the rashers, with all the extra fat cut off. And with each bacon medallion containing just 25-30 calories, you can save yourself 100 calories by substituting two regular rashers of bacon for two bacon medallions.
3. Use skinless chicken breasts
The skin covering chicken breasts contains a high amount of fat and unnecessary calories. Buy skinless chicken breasts, or remove the skin before cooking, and you could save yourself 100 calories.
