Easy Tips For Shaving Those Dreaded Calories
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There would be few people who do not want to be fit and trim and have the ultimate healthy body. I am going to give you some easy tips on how to shave calories from your everyday diet to get you a step closer to being that very person.

One amazing piece of research has proved the validity of getting rid of those calories laden sauces from your everyday meals. By far the simplest trick is to cook more vegetables for your main meal then refigerate the excess for another meal. This is not to be simply heated up for tomorrow's dinner but pureed into a sauce of its own. This sauce will replace those calorie dense sauces using butter, cream, cheese and milk which are commonly part of macaroni and cheese, casseroles and soups. This one subtitution can shave up to 200 calories per day.

Another easy way to cut those extra calories is by having a midday sandwich of wholegrain bread filled with a slice of chicken or turkey then adding as many salad vegetables as possible. The vegetables will not only fill you up but leave you feeling satisfied for longer.

Try piling your dinner plate with vegetables but remember to avoid the calories dense potatoes and corn. If you're really serious about losing your excess weight it's a good idea to remember that even the humble carrot is heavily laden with natural sugars.

Natural sugars can be a hidden danger to the average dieter and a major cause can be found in your colourful, healthy fruit. For the severely overweight it may be necessary to omit fruit from your diet altogether for a period of time. If you find this simply impossible to do then endeavour to have just one piece of fruit per day preferably with your breakfast. Another word of advice here, the banana would be one of the most calorie dense of fruits. If you decide to eat fruit at breakfast then make a point of adding a natural yoghurt to this meal; it has been proven that calcium can reduce the absorption of fat into the small intestine.

Yet another proven way of cutting calories is to add a variety of vegetables to a little rice as a lunchtime meal. Get into the habit of only eating brown or basmati rice as both these react differently on insulin as opposed to your normal everyday white rice. By adding multiple vegetables to a small portion of rice at the midday meal has been shown to not only cut afternoon hunger pangs but also reduces the amount one requires for the evening meal. What more could any weight watcher ask for?

By utilising just a few of these simple tricks one can easily shave calories from your daily eating plan and this ultimately means your weight will surely drop. One final word, don't forget to add that daily excercise however small it may be.
