Reduce calorie intake by 100 calories each day

With over one-third of Americans classified as being not just overweight but obese, many people would benefit from cutting calories to lose weight. Even those who are at a healthy weight might be able to benefit from reducing their caloric intake. Making a few simple changes to your diet can help you cut calories.

To lose weight at the recommended safe rate of 1 to 2 pounds per week, eat 500 to 1,000 fewer calories each day and try to exercise at least 30 to 60 minutes per day. Cutting calories doesn't have to leave you feeling hungry and deprived. Start by switching from beverages that contain calories to those that are calorie-free. Add more foods that have high water and fiber contents, such as non-starchy vegetables, fruits and whole grains, to your diet since these allow you to eat a greater volume of food while still limiting calories. Finally, watch your portion sizes, especially when you are eating foods that are high in calories.
