Dieting is never easy, but you can still enjoy the foods you love like baked potatoes and chicken salad. Toby Smithson, a registered dietician teaches us how to swap foods out of your meal for lower calorie options. Love baked potatoes with a little sour cream or love salads with some yummy dressing? You can still eat all of that, but make a couple substitutes and cut hundreds of calories a day!
Save on Calories
- Instead of sour cream, use two tablespoons of Greek yogurt or plain yogurt. You can save half the calories!
- When eating a salad, instead of using dressing, ask for a couple limes on the side for the dressing. You could save 200-300 calories! For a tasty snack, squeeze a little lime over some cucumbers.
- Instead of butter on your bread when you’re at the restaurant, use roasted garlic.
- Love chicken salad? Instead of putting it in a tortilla, put on a leaf of lettuce! You will save on calories and carbs; 270 calories to be exact!
