So with summer just around the corner, a lot of friends are starting to work towards their summer body.
Or if your like me, your trying to shift those last couple of baby kilos.
I know I’ve posted some foods calorie counts previously to help with weight loss goals.
Below I’ve listed a few easy ‘switches’ that can help you achieve these goals sooner!
Always remember to achieve your weight loss goals, eat healthy and your still allowed ‘cheat meals’ or snacks on occasion. With all weight loss, it is recommended that some exercise is included. Be it a walk or a class of some sort or simply running around with your children.
You can loose weight with a strict diet and without exercise however exercise will speed up the process and you will get results sooner!
Not to mention feel better as exercise releases endorphins and will give you more energy and a heather mind.
Switch a full cream milk in your flat white (123 calories) to skim milk flat white (68 calories)
Switch 100g of roast duck (313 calories) for 100g of roast chicken (152 calories)
Switch a can of lemonade (124 calories) for a diet lemonade (2 calories) – or even better sparkling water (0 calories)
Switch a pita bread pocket (190 calories) for a slice of Mountain Bread (75 calories)
Switch a glass of tonic water (135 calories) for a glass of soda water (0 calories)
Switch a 100ml scoop of Connoisseur
Vanilla ice cream (224 calories) for the same size scoop of Peter’s Light and Creamy Vanilla (75 calories)
Switch a tablespoon of regular cottage cheese (45 calories) for a tablespoon of low fat cottage cheese (26 calories)
Switch 80g of mashed potato (85 calories) for 80g of mashed cauliflower (19 calories)
Switch a tablespoon of sour cream (70 calories) for a tablespoon of fat free Greek yoghurt (13 calories)
Switch a cup of regular soy milk (185 calories) for a cup of light soy milk (95 calories)
Another tip – always read the labels of food as sometimes when something is low or no fat, it has a higher sugar count.
And what happens if we don’t burn the sugar ??? It turns to fat!
