Count out those chips because they add up before you realize it! Same applies to tiny candy, buttered popcorn and other high calorie, high fat finger-sized treats. Reach for a cup of strawberries instead OR hot air popcorn.
Hot air popped popcorn contains less than 20 calories per cup. Watch the butter, though. We recommend heating up no calorie butter and pouring on.
Make cinnamon and sugar popcorn that contains a mere 20 calories per cup. Add 2 Tablespoons of no calorie butter spray to a bag of hot air popped corn. Add 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and no calorie sweetener to suit your personal taste.
Make nacho cheese popcorn that contains a mere 20 calories per cup. Add 2 Tablespoons of no calorie butter spray to a bag of hot air popped corn. Add 1/2 teaspoon of ground chili powder and ground parmesan cheese as desired. Shake.
Become a nutrition label reader and expert. How can you go wrong when you know exactly what you are eating? Reading labels assists the dieter in recognizing high calorie foods, high fat foods and those injected with a bit too much sodium.
While dieting, stick to foods whose calorie content you are either familiar with OR that have the calories outlined on the label.
Don't touch the basket of bread until your meal arrives or you may find that you've eaten the entire basket. If need be, ask the waiter to wait until your entree arrives before setting the bread on the table.
Slice your bread thin and make sure that the slice is no wider than your hand (side-vision).
