Here is a little motivational "pep talk" for you today! You can cut calories with little effort. You don't have to starve yourself to cut calories and fat from your diet. Simple changes are all it requires. Eating healthy foods and exercising is the key to maintaining a healthy body weight. It doesn't require as much change as you would think. Here are easy ways to eat better and save on fat and calories in the process.
* Eat lean protein at every meal. Protein helps the body to feel full longer. It also requires more energy to break down during digestion. Good sources of protein include chicken, tuna, soybeans, and very lean meats. Keep your portion control limited to about 3 to 4 ounces.
* Create your own snack packs. Instead of purchasing perceived low-calorie snack packs, make your own. That's because those retail varieties tend to be sugary and not very filling, potentially causing you to eat more. Fill up baggies with a blend of nuts, dried fruit and dark chocolate chips for a filling, tasty and relatively nutritious snack.
