How to Cut 500 Calories a Day ...

By Holly

There are little things you can do to prevent yourself from gaining weight. If you follow the tips suggested by Health, you should be able to reduce your calorie intake by about 500 per day:

1 Tap Your Feet

Tap Your Feet You can "burn up to 350 calories a day just by tapping your feet or being restless." So the next time you're sitting in a chair, make sure you move your legs a bit.

2 Don’t Eat in Front of the TV

Don’t Eat in Front of the TV If you're focused on the TV, you won't be paying attention to how much food you eat. So sit at the table whenever you're hungry.

3 Limit Salad Toppings

Limit Salad Toppings Salad isn't all that healthy when it's loaded with toppings. Try to eat it without dressing for a change.

4 Skip the Whipped Cream

Skip the Whipped Cream The next time you buy ice cream, don't ask for whipped cream. It's loaded with calories you don't need.

5 Invite Fewer People over

Invite Fewer People over The more people you invite over, the more food you'll make. That means you'll end up with more leftovers you'll want to snack on.

6 Get Enough Sleep

Get Enough Sleep For some reason, people who get less sleep end up munching on snacks more often throughout the day. So make sure you always get your eight hours.

7 Drink Sugar Free Drinks

Drink Sugar Free Drinks Cut soda out of your diet completely. Once you do that, only opt for sugar free drinks.
