Shave Extra Calories With Unique Weight Loss Tips



We believe you, you religiously visit your gym and yet you are still struggling with those love handle. In this unique weight loss journey you feel like you have hit your weight loss plateau. We are here to tell you that you couldn’t be further from truth.

Weight loss is a simple math, if you feel you have hit a plateau there is still a way to shave off those extra calories. It takes about 3,500 calories to drop a pound which equates to 500 calories a day. This is an healthier way to lose a pound without starving yourself or killing yourself in the gym. Here are 10 ways to shave extra calories to get over that plateau hump on your unique weight loss journey:

(1) Serving Number

Going out to eat is everyone’s favorite outing, but restaurant’s portion size can be out of control. Most time, you receive 4 servings in one and if you aren’t careful you can wind up consuming your daily value worth of calories in one sitting. Do yourself a favor and share with friends. After all, sharing is caring plus you will avoid 1500 calories. Don’t forget to check the nutrition facts when you are in the mood to snack.

(2) Keep The Cocktails Slim

Grenadine, syrups, fruit juices, schnapps, sour mix, or a creamy mix, social drinking is delicious but not calorie friendly. Instead of indulging on those sinfully delicious cocktails, mix your drink with club soda, tonic water, cranberry juice, or a squeeze of citrus. Try distilled liquors on the rocks.

(3) Fill Up

Skip the pancakes and the bacon, 2 boiled or poached eggs will not only fill you up, but shave about 400 calories. Add a cup low-cal soup to your lunch or dinner, you’ll consume about 150 calories less for each meal. If you total your day, you just saved yourself about 700 calories.


(4) Say NO to the Soda Fix

Instead of reaching for a carbonated drink quench your thirst with water. A 12-ounce soft drink has about 150 to 180 calories and with no nutritional values, you’re getting lots of extra calories with no gain…expect on your waistline.

(5) Sleep

A lack of sleep can make you snack, people who got only 5 1/2 hours of sleep eat more during the day. More shut eye can cut about 1,087 calories.

(6) Beware Of Oils

In westernize society, oil tends to be the starting point of every meal from pan searing, sautéing, to frying; we consume a lot of oil. Switch out that oil for stock, or find ways to steam or poach your meals. Instead of kitchen oils, try basil or chive oils.

 (7) Morning Smoothie

The new health trend is a smoothie a day, but a 32 ounce smoothie is typically packed with 800 calories. This can really add up if this is a daily ritual. Instead, try oatmeal with banana slices and a cup  of black coffee. You’ll shave 518 calories.

 (8) Eat less pasta

One cup of pasta is just 220 calories. But typical dinner portions at restaurants can be as much as 480% larger than that 1 cup, according to New York University research. That’s 1,056 calories. Even  if you eat 2 whole cups of noodles, you’ll still save 616 calories.

 (9)Smaller Plates

Swap your 12-inch plate for a 10-inch one. You’ll eat 20 to 25% less—and save up to 500 calories. You won’t feel any less full.

 (10) Limit salad toppings

Salads are healthy and delicious, but those cheese crumbles, caramelized nuts, bacon, avocado, dried fruit, croutons, and vinaigrettes can add tons of calories. Keep your salad simple, one topping,  adding flavorful but lower-cal veggies like roasted bell peppers, grilled onions, or mushrooms, and using half the dressing. You will save about 500 calories.

* BONUS TIP: Don’t eat in front of the TV:

You’ll eat up to 288 calories more in front of the tube. Eat at the table instead, and trade 1 hour of TV for a casual walk. Together, that’s 527 calories burned.

How to Burn More Calories: 3 Easy Steps

How to Burn More Calories: 3 Easy Steps

how to burn

1. Wake up early: Moving workouts to early mornings offers cooler temps, but here’s the big payoff: morning exercisers burn more calories. Research shows that people who exercise in the a.m. work harder and for longer periods of time, which may be because they are more alert, energetic, and do not feel as rushed as afternoon or evening exercisers. Getting into a regular morning routine also means you’re more likely to stick with it, which will help you even more on your weight-loss journey.

2. Get speedy: When it comes to cardio, running will help you lose more weight than walking since it burns more calores, but if you increase your speed just a little, then you’ll burn even more. And don’t stick to a consistent pace the entire workout. Adding sprinting intervals is an effective way to increase your calorie burn and has also been proven to reduce belly fat. Also be sure to swing those arms as you move, and you’ll burn 15 percent more calories

3. Strength train during your day Muscle burns more calories than fat does, so the more muscle mass you have, the better it is for weight loss. Don’t just hit the weight room at the gym. Include strength training moves throughout your day, such as doing push-ups on the bathroom counter and doing two minutes of squats while you brush your teeth. You can also work your body by carrying a basket instead of pushing a cart, using the stairs whenever possible, and sitting on an exercise ball instead of a chair.
