Top Tip: Low Calorie Alternatives Help

This should be a Homer Simpson style D’oh moment.

Changing as many small things in your current diet to healthier low calorie options is half the battle and adds up to some pretty impressive changes overall. Many people say they can taste the difference but this is only temporary, once you have changed your tastes will change and adjust to less sugar/fat and you will find the old full sugar one too sweet, the full fat too greasy it really does happen.

My top suggestions for changes are:

Pepsi to Pepsi Max.
Bottles to Cans.
Coke to Diet Coke with Lemon.
Full Butter to Vitalite or Low Fat Spread.
Full Sugar Drinks to Lo-Cal Flavoured Water.
Full Fat Milk to Semi Skimmed.
Fried Egg to Boiled or Poached Egg.
High Fibre Breakfast Cereals.
Wholegrain Bread.

If you cut down and try to save as many calories as you can, you will soon realise you are saving 1000s of calories per week and the weight will drop off. For example changing Warburtons White Toastie bread to a wholegrain harvest grain bread, saves you around 60 kcal per slice, so if you ate 6 slices per day would be saving 360kcal which is almost 1lb of weight loss per week.

Think what you have, that you can change slightly, don’t think you have to go whole-hog all at once either. I personally for example went from full-milk to semi-skimmed and now I have semiskimmed on Shreaddies Cereal and Skimmed in my drinks. I’ll move to fully skimmed in time, so I’ll save around 600 kcal per week compared to full-milk.

Every time you cut something down, work out how many times a month you would have it, now add those calories up for the month. Saving 50 kcal on not having cream in your coffee, if you drink 10 cups a day, will save you almost 3lb a month weight loss. Add them up in weekly and monthly total, and then work to 3500 kcal = 1lb of weight loss.

Here’s the low-down scoop, alter your daily routine just a little bit to improve your fitness, its not hard to make these little changes.

My Top 5 Little Changes add up to one pretty good sized change.

  1. Park the car in the farthest corner of the car park from where you are going, that extra little walk will burn those calories.
  2. Walk down the road to next bus stop, and get off the bus a stop or two early, not only will you save on bus fare but you’ll be burning calories. 2 stops on a bus is about 10-20p per journey, throw this into a money box and put it towards that new game or gadget you want.
  3. Walk at a pace that makes you breath heavy, just fast enough that your breathing deeper will kick start your metabolism.
  4. Go Swimming once per week for a few hours, have a swim, fool around, do some laps, have fun more than anything.
  5. Extend the dogs walk (or walk a friends dog) by 5 minutes per week, plan a route and add to it.

These simple 5 steps will burn 1000s of calories, and set you on your way to turning your body into a  lean machine, while your doing this extra, don’t forget to get a Weighted Water Bottle (right) to burn those extra few calories.
