Making the smallest dietary adjustments in an overall diet plan can help your weight-loss results when you add them up over time. Here are ten simple tips that fit into any demanding schedule.

10 Tips:

  • Do not snack after dinner.
  • Consume at least 8-10 glasses of water (8 oz.) per day.
  • Use less salt and cut down on high-sodium foods.
  • Choose diet soda over a regular 12-ounce can of soda – you’ll save about 150 calories.
  • Change to whole-wheat and whole-grain products instead of white.
  • Eat lean cuts of meat to slash calories, fat and cholesterol.
  • Watch your portion sizes – a serving of meat should be the size of a deck of cards (approximately 4-6 oz).
  • Swap regular salad dressing with low-calorie ones.
  • If you’re short on time, don’t reach for high-calorie sweets.
  • Replace 1% and 2% milk with skim milk.
