50 Ways to Shed 500 Calories a Day

The holidays are a time for family, friends and creating new memories. It’s been said that the only time Charles Dickens’ characters were happy was when they were sharing a meal, and indeed, our own warm holiday moments with loved ones typically go hand-in-hand with food.

There are little ways to trim what you take in, however. MSN recently published an article with a list of 50 ways you can shed up to 500 calories per day. The ideas cover a wide variety of topics, ranging from dancing and sleeping to using smaller plates and cutting back on the sugary beverages.

Click here to read the MSN article in its entirety. For something on a more local level, Sherman Health is offering an hour-long Healthy Eating Survival Skills for 2010 class on January 13th and 19th. Click here to find out more and to sign up for the free-of-charge class!

  1. Until they make a hamburger and fries $100 each at McDonald’s, people will still eat them on a regular basis. :-)

    My husband recently promised me I get to “Clair Huxtable” him in the new year (i.e. take unhealthy food right out of his hands!), so this is pretty helpful!

    Definitely on my way to check it out.

    Great post. I run a site on healthy chinese food so this will come in handy for when I look at how to slim down recipes. Do you happen to know of any articles about asian foods and calories?

    The easiest way is if you maintain a certain weight now, all you have to do is keep eating the same but step up your cardio, and watch the weight come off! Note so hard and the best bit is you keep eating the same!

  6. Not eating whats in the picture does it for me. Oh and exercise haha

    A return to a reasonable balance of calories in vs calories out is the kind of health care reform we need here in the good ol’ U. S. of A. Thanks for helping us along in that direction. Nice blog! :)

  8. I liked the ideas, but not number 8. “Don’t clean your plate.” Shame, shame…doesn’t everyone know that food waste is at peak levels and this is not sustainable? Think of the hungry. Learn to eat less, but not by wasting 25% of the food you take.
