Any good weight loss routine needs to be sustainable. It shouldn’t be something that happens quickly. You need something that forms new, good habits that you adopt for the future. Developing new habits takes time and that’s why success comes with slow and steady. This translates into a slight calorie reduction, most days over long periods of time. For example, a 300-500 calorie reduction each day over three to four weeks is likely to result in 1-2lbs of weight loss each week or 6-10lbs each month which is not insignificant. If you want to shed a few pounds, here are some easy ways to cut 500 calories from your day: so easy, you’ll barely notice.
1. Reduce Your Coffee Size
If you like a latte or a cappuccino in the morning, then that is 60-100 calories right off the bat. Opting for a ¾ size cup rather than a full cup can actually save you up to 50 calories without even feeling like you have cut back on anything! Ditching the sugar and using an alternative can help you to save even more calories on top of that.
