50 Ways to Cut 500 Calories a Day

From MSN.com, 50 Ways to Cut 500 Calories a Day.  Some interesting ones…

Limit dinner guests. Eating with seven or more other guests can make you eat 96 percent more food, says Brian Wansink, Ph.D., author of Mindless Eating. That’s like doubling your dinner! Dine with fewer guests to save 500 or more calories.

Build a lean burrito—and you’ll save 630 calories. The reduced calorie options add up to 490 calories—down from 1,120.  Here’s how:

  • Instead of a flour tortilla, order lettuce.
  • Instead of cheese, order guacamole.
  • Instead of ground beef, shredded pork.
  • Instead of black beans, order pinto beans.
  • Instead of rice, order corn salsa
  • Instead of salsa, order pico de gallo

Tap your foot. Your skinnier friends are probably fidgeters, who burn up to 350 calories a day just by tapping their feet or being restless. Try it for a few days. Walk around while you’re on the phone, or tap out a tune with your hands or feet (in the privacy of your own office, of course).
