Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean that we’re all ready to bury ourselves in sweaters and forget about all our #fitnessgoals. We want to share with you easy ways that you can cut calories from your weekly routine, without killing yourself with any fad diet restrictions. Here’s our top list of the most effective swaps for your waistline.
Let’s talk beverages. If you are soda guzzler, swap that out with some soda water. You’ll still get those bubbles, without all the added sugar and chemical additives. If you really need flavor, drop in some calorie-free flavor enhancers. If you are a cream or milk in your coffee-drinker, then make the swap for almond milk to cut about 50 calories from your morning wakeup call! Is beer more your thing? Grab a light one next time you’re out and you can enjoy twice as much for the same calorie count!
Time to talk condiments. Still putting mayo on your sandwiches? Swap that out for some protein-rich hummus and you will be more satisfied and lighter to boot! Salad dressing got you weighed down? Switch that out for a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar! You’ll be able to enjoy the tastes of the salad ingredients and you won’t feel like you’ve just eaten a jar of mayonnaise!
Use just a few or all of these smart swaps, and you won’t having to hide a thing under those cozy sweaters this fall!
