Here are 5 things anybody can do to lose weight without giving up any of your favorite foods!

  1. Practice portion control. The easiest way to slash fat and calories is to reduce the size of your servings.
  2. Fill up the empty spots on your dinner plate with more vegetables!
  3. Lighten up all of your favorite recipes to reduce calories and preserve the flavor. Visit switcheroo.com It’s a cook’s thesaurus! You can search for lower-calorie ingredients to swap out for the higher-calorie ingredients.
  4. Snack on fruit and vegetables. It’s easier to be satisfied with smaller servings at mealtimes when you’re not starving. You can even save room for a mini dessert!

  5. Get up and move for five minutes every hour. Moving burns calories so that you don’t have to reduce your calories too much to achieve a calorie deficit necessary to lose weight.
