Hope you are having a wonderful and healthy day! Today I want to discuss a major "dieting" misunderstanding with you. I want to show you the difference between the consumption of 100 calories compared to the expenditure of 100 calories.

This is definitely going to help you make wiser eating decisions and healthier choices.

Without further adieu, lets have a chat about:

**Eating Vs. Exercise for 100 Calories

It is easy to eat 100 calories without even thinking about it. If you add ketchup to your fries, 100 calories, guzzle a glass of skim milk, 100 calories, munch a piece of plain toast, 100 calories. But how long does it take to burn 100 calories? You would have to run for 10 minutes, lift weights for 20 minutes, do yoga for 20 minutes or walk for 20 minutes.

The conclusion?

It is much easier to cut out 100 calories from your diet then to work it off by exercise!

**A Little Change Makes A Huge Difference

Taking out 100 calories from your day may not seem like much, but at the end of the week that is 700 less calories consumed, which means that it is 700 calories that you don't have to worry about burning off each week either. To take out 100 calories per day, just think about how long it would take to burn that food off, and if you really need it in your diet or not.

One Oreo cookie, for example, has about 50 calories in it, so to burn off just one cookie you would have to walk for 10 minutes. Some other 100 calorie foods that are easy to chop from your diet are things like pretzels (just 18 have 100 calories) chocolates (5 dark chocolates have 100 calories) or plain bread products, for example, there are 100 calories in just 1/3 of a plain bagel!

It is hard to always fit exercise into our days, and so taking out 100 calories rather than having to burn 100 calories makes sense. It is easy to do, and the calories you save will add up quickly!

**Reach Your Weight Loss Goals-It's Easier Than You Think!

Losing weight sometimes seems unachievable, but by cutting out 100 calories per day, you can lose one pound a month! Yes, it will take a little time for you to see big results, but cutting out a "french fry" here and an "18% creamer" there really won't impact your life, so you can stick to the weight loss plan and feel happier and healthier while not having to make a huge sacrifice.

Some easy ways to cut 100 calories:

* Use 1 tablespoon of jam on your toast rather than 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter

* Have 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce rather than sweetened

* Steam your asparagus rather than cooking it in butter or oil

* Change your steak size from 4 1/2 ounces to 3 ounces

* Replace 1 cup of ice cream with 2/3 cut nonfat frozen yogurt

* Top your salads with chopped celery instead of croutons

**Food Journal

To help you discover 100 calorie foods that you are eating everyday that would be easy to cut out, create a diet journal and track what you eat for a week, including every handful of skittles and every latte you consume. At the end of the week, find ways to save calories by bypassing the candies or cutting down from 3 cups of coffee to 2. Little changes will make a world of difference!

Making small changes by making better choices can have a huge impact on your overall health and weight. Cut out just 100 calories a day to find a happier, healthier you!
