Cut Out Unnecessary Calories
by theworkoutgirl.comThe Workout Girl
OK, I get it. Everyone has a “cheat day” with their diet. That is totally cool, provided it is in moderation. However, if you simply have to have your daily fix of something indulgent (read: your ‘must have’ morning latte), then check out these three easy food swaps to cut out the extra calories each day:
1. Swap your morning latte for a Skinny Vanilla Latte at Starbucks. This delectable drink tastes great, packs a caffeine punch, and comes in at a very manageable 80 calories for 16 ounces (“grande” size). The trick is the use of non-fat milk and sugar-free vanilla syrup.
2. Swap your afternoon sugar binge for dark chocolate. Aside from tasting delicious, dark chocolate is chock-full of immune-boosting antioxidants. Plus, dark chocolate has a more bitter taste than most sweets, so a little bit goes a long way to satisfy cravings.
3. Swap your fruity Happy Hour cocktail for a vodka with soda water and a lime. Yes, I know it is temping to down a frozen pink cocktail with a mini umbrella stuck in it. But while you may see “delicious drink,” I see a ton of sugar and empty calories. A vodka with soda water and a squeeze of lime comes in at just 80-108 calories, which is a much better option. Just make sure you’ve had a bite to eat before consuming one, or else you’ll be a hot mess in a dress soon enough!
If diet is half the equation, fitness is the other half. Check out theworkoutgirl.com for workouts you can do anywhere.
