Lose That Weight

So did you make any resolutions?  Was one about losing weight?  All I did was eat candy and baked goods for the past two weeks.  I think I may have over-done it on the sweets!  It seems that the most popular resolution for the New Year is to lose weight, at least according to If you really want to lose weight, don’t diet.

Diets can make you feel deprived, and that makes you more prone to binge eating — not exactly a good way to shed pounds. Instead of dieting, make small changes in your eating habits. According to NYP Holdings, here are 10 ways to lose 10 pounds:

  1. Take three bites less of everything. This will typically shave off 100 calories.
  2. Go ahead and order the pizza, but cut out the cheese and meat toppings and choose extra sauce and veggies instead.
  3. Watch less television. Previous research has shown that people who watch more than two hours of TV a day tend to be overweight.
  4. Instead of oil or butter, use nonstick sprays and pans.
  5. When you go to parties, do this simple trick: Don’t look at the buffet table. What you don’t see won’t tempt you.
  6. When you’re making homemade goodies, cut the sugar in the recipe by one-third. You’ll never even notice the difference.
  7. Hungry? Eat fruit instead of candy. Do this once a day and you’ll save a whopping 100 calories.
  8. Thirsty? Drink from a tall, thin glass instead of a short, squat one. It will seem like you’re drinking more.
  9. When possible, stand instead of sitting. Fifty minutes of standing actually burns up 100 calories!
  10. Cut your portion size the easy way: Use smaller plates and bowls
