Health Tip: Make Small Changes to Cut Calories

-- Making a few small changes to your diet can help you trim the calories, which can add up to real weight loss.

The American Dietetic Association offers these suggestions to shave calories:

  • Use small plates and bowls.
  • Eat slowly, making meals last at least 20 minutes.
  • Always place a serving onto a plate, rather than eating directly from a carton, box or bag.
  • Pour drinks, except for water, into a narrow glass.
  • Choose water over drinks that contain calories.
