Easily Eliminate 100 Calories a Day

Dieting doesn't have to mean giving up everything that you love. A few simple changes here and there can trim a few calories from your daily intake -- and that can mean faster weight loss. Following one or more of these suggestions in the food and beverage choices made at home, work, school, or on the go can help cut about 100 calories each day. While 100 calories may not seem like a big thing, over the course of one year you will have saved yourself 36,500 calories in total.
