Simple Ways to Reduce Calories and Lose Weight

Reduce Your Portion Sizes
The easiest way to reduce calories is to cut the size of your portions.

Reduce Sugary and Alcoholic Drinks
Calories from sugary and alcoholic drinks are usually calories that go unnoticed.

Reduce Your Intake of Sugary snacks and Chips
I never tell people not to eat sugary snacks or chips. However, let’s talk moderation. If you eat them in moderation, and have balance in your life, you can eat them in reduced portions.

Skip Surgery Cereals

I think having cereal in the morning is fine. When I was in the weight loss process (and still today), I switched between eggs and Special K for breakfast. Therefore, you can have cereal for breakfast, just make sure it is not a sugary cereal if you want to lose weight and keep it off.

Avoid Frying When Possible
Instead of frying, you might want to grill, roast, or boil your food. Remember this, the way you cook food can alter the number of calories it contains.

Choose Fresh Food Rather than Processed Food
Freshly prepared foods usually have fewer calories than processed foods because they usually contain lots of carbs, and sugars. Processed foods usually also contain a lot more sodium, which in excess is bad for your blood pressure.

Remove most of the skin of the chicken and the fat from meat
Chicken skin and fat on your steak may taste good but can add extra unneeded calories. I say remove most of it because if you really like it, don’t deprive yourself, leave a little on. Just eat a little, not all of it.
