One easy way to reduce calories is to drink calorie-free beverages. Foods tend to be more filling than drinks regardless of calorie content. Substituting juice for unsweetened tea can help dieters cut calories without feeling any hungrier. Beverage calories also typically come from simple carbohydrates like sugar. Simple carbohydrates can make people feel artificially hungry.
There is a substantial overlap between healthy diets and low-calorie diets. Fruits and vegetables are often packed with nutrients, bulky, and low-calorie. Simply eating more fruits and vegetables may make you feel too full for unhealthy food. Ideally, dieters should be trying to improve their health as well as trying to lose weight. Eating more fruits and vegetables can help them accomplish both tasks simultaneously.
A simple way to burn more calories is to try to incorporate more walking into your daily routine. Doing more walking is often a matter of making many simple daily decisions. For example, parking your car in the most distant parking space or taking the stairs instead of the elevator can contribute to weight loss over a long period of time. Even tapping your feet when you listen to music can help burn calories. Burning calories need not be an overly strenuous process. In trying to lose weight gradually, dieters are that much more likely to maintain their weight loss after they have earned it.
