If the words “cutting calories” sound about as fun as standing in line at the DMV all day then listen up, as it really doesn’t have to be as dreadful as it seems. Weight management is incredibly simple when you start to break it down and make sensible goals. It’s not about replacing everything in your pantry with “diet” foods or paying for a having to sign up for an expensive line of supplements; you can do this at home, and you can do it with the right tools on your own. Take baby steps, and don’t become overwhelmed. Celebrate every tiny win, and even if you have a bad calorie day, just pick up where you left off and keep going!
People often pile on the condiments totally unaware that they are contributing massive amounts of calories their daily totals. Ketchup for instance is packed with sugar, mayo is fattening as ever, and don’t even get me started on salad dressing. Chew on this, one tablespoon of your average Ranch dressing is over 70 calories; that’s one tablespoon! When is the last time you had a salad and only used a tablespoon of dressing? Never, because that would barely cover a salad, and that’s where condiments kill your fitness plan.
