6 Simple Ways To Cut Out Extra Calories – Get Started Today Eating healthy isn’t always easy. Luckily, you don’t need to eat kale for breakfast, lunch, and dinner while finding the time to work out for an hour each day. If you eat healthy 80% of the time and exercise most days of the week, you’ll be on the right track for a healthy body. To simplify that equation even more, add in these simple ways to cut out extra calories throughout the day. 1. Hold the sugar. It’s hard to resist kicking off your morning with coffee, and we’d never ask that of you. But, next time you head to the store, buy a brand and flavor of coffee that you wouldn’t mind drinking black. Avoid the added cream, milk, and sugar for a nearly calorie-free caffeine boost. 2. While your coffee brews, prep a bowl of high fiber oatmeal. Starting your morning with a filling breakfast will make you less likely to attack snacks later in the day. 3. Water, waiter! Heading out to lunch with coworkers? Many of us use dining out as an excuse to drink things we normally stay away from, like sugary drinks. Stay away from soda, lemonade, and mixed drinks and stick with water. Save the calories for your meal. 4. Break wisely. Use your lunch break wisely and get up from your desk for a brisk 15 minute walk. You’ll still have time to eat when you come back, and you will have gotten in an extra calorie burn. 5. Prep wisely. When cooking your meals for the week (the best way to assure you’ll eat healthy all week long), use cooking spray instead of coating a pan with oil, better yet coconut oil can be a great choice. You’ll cut an average of 200 calories from a simple swap! 6. Skip the dressing. Kudos to you for making a salad, but don’t ruin your healthy efforts by coating your greens in dressing. Instead, reach for a bit of olive oil and lemon juice with a touch of salt and pepper. The simple “dressing” will add flavor without adding major calories.
