Default Cut hundreds of calories

Honestly speaking, I think that this is aimed towards the wusses () that don't want to suck it up and go the hard core diet in one go.

Still thought it would be some cool info for anyone who's interested

Cut 100 Calories at Breakfast

  • Use skim milk in place of flavored Coffee-mate in your two morning mugs.
  • Eat a bowl of high-fiber cereal and you'll consume fewer calories all day.
  • Order bacon, not sausage, with your eggs.
  • Choose a yeast doughnut instead of a denser cake one.
Cut 100 Calories at Lunch

  • Use 1 tablespoon of mayo and 1 tablespoon of low-fat cottage cheese to make tuna salad.
  • Put barbecue sauce, not honey mustard, on your chicken sandwich at Wendy's.
  • Top your burger with onions, lettuce, and tomato and skip the cheese.
  • Ask for the 12-ounce child-size soda instead of the 21-ounce medium at the drive-through.
  • Slim down your sandwich by using Arnold Select 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins instead of whole wheat bread.
  • Toss your salad with 1 tablespoon of dressing until every lettuce leaf is coated. You'll get away with using half the usual serving size. Try this trick at dinner too.
  • Skip the crackers and shredded cheese on your chili.
Cut 100 Calories at Dinner

  • Trade butter for a flavorful spread made with garlic, fresh rosemary, and light, trans fat-free margarine.
  • Making meatballs? Mix half the amount of ground beef the recipe calls for with half as much cooked brown rice.
  • Instead of two slices of medium pepperoni pan pizza, choose thin-crust.
  • When munching on chicken wings, don't toss the bones midway through. Seeing the evidence of your feast may help you eat less, studies show.
Cut 100 Calories from a Snack

  • Trade 1/2 cup of premium vanilla ice cream for 1/2 cup of Breyers Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream.
  • Ordering a cone? Make it the sugar, not the waffle, kind.
  • Munch on Pirate's Booty. In a study, switching to an air-puffed cheesy snack twice a day saved about 70 calories a pop.
  • Grab a Dannon Light & Fit yogurt, not a low-fat fruit blend.
  • Replace half the butter in cake, muffin, and brownie recipes with an equal amount of applesauce or mashed bananas. You'll save about 100 calories for every tablespoon you swap.
  • Indulge in a slice of angel food cake drizzled with chocolate syrup rather than three cookies.

Some of the advises are a bit iffy (changing meat for rice in meatballs and replacing butter with margarine) but otherwise I'd say its easy things to follow that can make some difference.
