Easy Changes to Your Diet

I got this list of things from the March 15 issue of Fitness Magazine

  • Replace your morning bagel and cream cheese with an English muffin and cottage cheese
  • Skip the large bakery muffin in favor of 1 slice of whole wheat toast topped with 1 tablespoon with peanut butter
  • Swap your large bran muffin for 3/4 cup of bran flakes
  • Replace eggs and cheese with scrambled egg whites
  • Replace your 450 calorie lunch with a 200 calorie protein shake
  • Replace large french fries with a yogurt and fruit parfait
  • Modify your lunch: Skip the cheese on your salad or sandwich, substitute mayo, and replace potato chips with soy chips
  • have 1/2 tuna salad sandwich instead of a whole plus two cups of raw vegetables.
  • Skip the cheese in an omelet and a lunchtime sandwich
  • Switch from cream soup to vegetable-based soup at lunch and dinner
  • Switch from 1 cup premium to light ice cream
  • Resist the handfull of M & M's at the receptionist's desk
  • Cut out 1 biscoti and 1 large mocha
  • Switch from a chai tea latte to lemon tea
  • Have 1 ounce of soy nuts instead of 3 ounces of roasted almonds
  • Substitute a serving of beef with shrimp or a white flaky fish like cod at two meals
  • Leave behind one fourth of breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Have 1 cup of strawberries instead of a whole banana and cauliflower instead of a baked potato with sour cream
  • Replace ranch or blue cheese dressing with low-fat vinaigrette at lunch and dinner
  • Cut all calorie counting beverages
  • Have a vodka and soda instead of a margarita at happy hour
