When it comes to lunch and weight loss, you've got to choose wisely. Barely eating anything or skipping the meal altogether can lead to binge eating later in the day, but filling up midday doesn't bode well for your weight-loss plans. Instead of either, make smart choices at lunch that save calories while ensuring you stay full and have adequate nutrition. Keep these two quick tips handy to save up to 300 calories during your midday meal.
