More weight loss savings from simple changes and substitutions

Another couple of tips:

  • When dining out, forget the dessert tray. The average restaurant desert can have as many as 750 calories. Many Americans eat out 2-3 times a week, and by turning dessert down once or twice a week-- 11 to 22 pounds are gone over a year.

  • Eat more often—small frequent meals help keep hunger in check and that can help curb cravings or binges. Add mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks like low calorie yogurt and a piece of fruit, light cheese and whole-wheat crackers, etc. By preventing a binge it is estimated that calories saved can range 250-400 calories.
