Everyone should know that the easiest way to lose weight is to lower the calories. This method is not a fast one, but it is safe. If you cut 500 calories daily, you lose 1-2 pounds per week. You don’t overdo anything, just follow these directions. Sure you will look and feel better. So we present you some tips to cut 500 calories a day.
Tips To Cut 500 Calories Per Day
1. Bypass peanuts
Do not put it as snacks on the tables in the house. Especially if the bowls are very large. As many nuts are, the more you are tempted to eat. If you really can not abstain from it, you have an alternative: pistachios. 3 handfuls of peanuts have 500 calories, while pistachios have only 200 calories.
2. Do not eat in front of the TV
Eat normally, on the table, and then run or walk out a half an hour. Thus cut 500 calories at each meal. In front of the TV people eat more than at the table.
3. Stop drinking fancy coffee
If you are a coffee drinker, and especially if you like coffee that looks good, than there is a problem. A great cup of coffee with cream, syrups and other additions has much more than 500 calories. If replacing your fancy coffee (as in the pic) with a espresso, you save over 600 calories.
4. Sleep 8 hours a day
If you sleep more, you have less time to eat. Studies show that those who sleep 5 hours per night, eat about 1000 calories more. If you wake up early you get hungry faster, and eat several times more.
5. Eat food that makes you feel full
For example boil two eggs for breakfast and for dinner eat a bowl of soup. In this way you save more than 500 calories per day.
Besides these tricks you can eat from a small plate, as I said in a previous article. Or you can replace your daily soda with water. There are many other methods, it is important to respect them if you want to have results.
