Simple ways of creating a calorie deficit
Updated: Oct 17
When you consistently eat more calories than your body needs, the extra calories are stored as fat. If weight loss is your goal then for you to be successful you must create a calorie deficit. However this doesn't mean you have to go on a crazy restrictive diet. There is no need for you to cut out all the foods and drinks that you love.
There are lots of ways of making simple changes that will make a big difference. For example swap:-
cappuccino or latte for a white (or ideally black) americano
fruit juice for a piece/portion of whole fruit or have half fruit juice and half water
crisps for unsalted popcorn
icecream for a frozen blended banana
whole milk for skimmed milk
salami for sliced turkey or chicken breast
whole milk ricotta cheese for cottage cheese
Mayonnaise for half an avocado or make your own dressing using olive oil, herbs and spices
cheesy creamy sauces for tomato or vegetable based sauces
These little changes don't seem like much, but they will add up over the week and could be why you're struggling to create a calorie deficit and reach your weight loss goals.
