In the course of one month, if you make each of the swaps below, just once, you save enough calories to lose 1 pound.

  • Instead of a cheese omelet have 2 scrambled eggs – 188 calories saved.
  • Instead of a convenience store, extra-large soda, drink a can of soda – 660 calories saved.
  • Instead of a large coffee + 2 tablespoons half & half and 2 teaspoons sugar, drink a small coffee + 2 tablespoons nonfat milk and 1 teaspoon sugar – 56 calories saved.
  • Instead of eating a restaurant serving of tuna salad, take half home – 400 calories saved.
  • Instead of a side salad with 2 tablespoons creamy Italian dressing, eat a side salad with fat free creamy Italian dressing – 120 calories saved.
  • Instead of ordering a 1 pound porterhouse steak, order a boneless sirloin – 770 calories saved.
  • Instead of topping your baked potato with sour cream, try using just fresh ground pepper – 120 calories saved.
  • Instead of a regular order of pancakes, order a short stack – 400 calories saved.
  • Instead of having your morning cereal with whole milk switch to nonfat milk – 80 calories saved.
  • Instead of a full fat, vanilla ice cream cone, try a frozen vanilla yogurt cone – 183 calories saved.
  • Instead of a large order of French fries, order small – 270 calories saved.
  • Order carrot cake with cream cheese icing for dessert, but split it with a friend – 242 calories saved.
