YOUR HEALTH NOW! - EASY WAYS TO CUT CALORIES, WITHOUT TRYING! We have to reduce 3,500 calories to lose one pound. Sounds difficult? It is very easy. Check out these easy ways to cut calories and not even notice! • Use a smaller plate or bowl - this forces you to put less on your plate/bowl. • Put your fork/spoon down between each bite - it takes 15-20 minutes for your brain to sense your stomach is full. Savor each bite of food by putting down your fork/spoon. • Chew your food more - this is a BIG must. Mom always said “chew your food. Your stomach doesn’t have teeth in it.” Experts say to chew each bite 39 times. This makes us eat slower and enjoy each bite. • Power down - turn off the TV, put away the phone and focus on your food! Else we end up eating more. • START your meal with a salad - say no to the bread basket or chips. Say yes to the salad with dressing on the side. It’s a few extra dollars that will help you shed many more calories! • Make fruits and veggies the biggest part of your meal - Nutrition experts say your plate should be as colorful as the rainbow. Aim for fresh veggies with your meals and end with fresh fruit for dessert!
