If you're looking to take the first steps to losing weight at the gym but haven't tackled the whole eating part of the equation, then this simple tip might be just what you need. Instead of altering the way you eat entirely at first, start by cutting out 100 calories a day from your diet. 100 Calories a day is so easy to do since it seems like nothing. However, in the grand scheme of things 100 calories per day for one year is over ten pounds.
For a little list of foods that are around 100 calories then
100 Calorie Foods:
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 4 Hershey's Kisses
- 1 Cup Coca-Cola
- 1/2 Strawberry Pop-Tart
- 2 Fig Newtons
- 1.5 Tablespoons Ranch salad dressing
So take a look at your food journal so you can figure out where you have room to cut something around 100 calories — pay special attention to the extras like dressings, butters, etc.
