This Columbus Day weekend, are you planning to indulge? An extra dessert or maybe a burger? In and of itself, this isn’t a bad thing. But seriously. It’s just the little things that keep the weight off.
The average American adult is gaining about 1 pound every year. Eating just 10 calories more than your body needs a day can lead to a 1 pound weight gain. More often than not, focusing on the little things you put in your mouth helps you avoid weight gain.
So, start small. For example, did you know that a 20 oz of bottle of cola contains a little more than 15 teaspoons of sugar? By replacing it with diet cola or unsweetend tea, you’ll save a whopping 240 calories. That afternoon chocolate bar? Swap it out for a piece of fruit to satisfy your sweet tooth and save your waist line.
