4 Nutritional Swaps That Could Change Your Life
These swaps could save you hundreds (if not thousands) of calories per day.
You can look inside anyone’s diet and find simple “swap strategies” as I like to call them, where you can slide in one similar piece of food or beverage that could give that person the mathematical means to begin making progress with their weight/fat loss journey. In fact, many can make some of these changes without feeling like they are sacrificing anything simply because they didn’t know what they didn’t know! Additionally, this is a great starting point for most people that are overweight and need to begin making changes.
1. Almond Milk instead of Cow’s Milk
2. Wraps instead of Bread
3. Diet Soda instead of regular soda
4. Greek Yogurt instead of Regular High Sugar Yogurt
As you can see, making a few simple swaps can pay big dividends in the long run. Now, this is assuming that more calories aren’t being picked up in other places over the year. For some people, these changes may just take you from weight gain mode to weight stay mode, which is better than weight gain mode for most people. For others who are hovering at a weight stay mode, these simple swaps could lead to the results mentioned above. Additionally, tack on 3 or more strength training sessions per week, and you’re really onto something.
Be consistent, stay the course, and fight the worthy battle of the bulge. This example shows how 48.5lbs of extra calories could be eliminated with some simple swaps over the course of the year.
