Re: ways to cut down calories
please contribute any ways to cut down on calories without the sweating part that is exercise, exercise and exercise.
This is one thing that really gets to me. People talking about not eating those foods or that foods because they have lots of calories and hence are bad for you. Whatever happened to doing exercise in order to burn off your calories?
Well, a surefire way is to ensure that you don't eat anything between meals.
Cut down on the coffee and I don't mean go decaffeinated. I mean, don't drink as much. The roasting creates acrylamide, a carcinogen. Coffee alone can contribute 13% to 39% of your exposure to the stuff.
Eat more fruits and veg. Eat less starchy foods, but don't cut them out entirely, as the Atkins Diet is detrimental to health in the long run. Check the labels on every bit of processed food you buy. In fact, don't buy any processed food. Cook everything yourself. Make your own ketchup if you need to.
And no soft drinks.
No cookies. No ice cream. No ice-lollies (no idea what they're called in American English).
Going vegetarian can cut your calories very well. I mean, have you ever seen a fat vegetarian? I haven't.
