Here’s how to lose calories daily:

Staying awake for most time of the day may make you want to eat every now and then. You will save 100 calories by sleeping.
two: Avoid eating much pasta
A plate of pasta alone has about 200 calories. However, if we add more flavour to this, like sauce, the number of calories can increase. Instead, choose whole wheat noodles or eat little.
three: Avoid cocktails
Cocktails are a mixture of different drinks which may contain syrup, creamy additions, canned juices, and sugars. All these out together may be amounting up to 800 calories. Avoid drinks like these and choose natural juices or ones that have citrus.
four: Say “No” to nuts
Although nuts are good for your heart, they have a large amount of calories (1 handful contains 175 calories). If you must have them, do not eat much.
five: You Shouldn’t eat infront of the TV
Eating infront of the TV can make you eat almost 300 calories more because you won’t be paying attention to what you’re eating. Instead, sit at a table to eat with the TV turned off. And instead of watching a movie afterwards, take advantage of this time to take a walk.
six: Make use of smaller plates
If you make use of smaller plates, you will put less food on it. If you have been taught to “eat everything on your plate”, this will help you eat less.
seven: Count Your Snacks
Potato chips or cookies are well liked snacks but eat only a smaller portion of them, they and save the remaining package. A big packet of chips is not good because you will end up eating them all because they are super addictive and delicious.
eight: Stay active
Spending all day sitting in front of a computer or the television is not advisable. While talking on the phone for example, walk around the room or the office or move your legs and feet to the beat of a song in your head. Anything to avoid being inactive.
nine: Don’t wipe the plate clean
You do not have to eat all the portion on your plate. An expert in weight loss says that you have to leave 25% of the plate full. You can save the leftover for later or give it to the dog.
ten: Ignore the smoothies
Smoothies are very delicious and refreshing but also very high in calories. A big glass with banana, milk, and sugar has at least 800 calories. Rather, take fruit juices.
eleven: Use very little vegetable oil t o cook
It’s better to prepare meals with palm oil instead of vegetable oil because every tablespoon has 124 calories. But if you must use it, let it be at very little amount.
twelve: Skip the soft drinks
Soft drinks contain almost 200 calories and if you drink two or three glasses, you will exceed these limits. There is nothing better than water to quench your thirst.
thirteen: Be attentive to your stomach signals
You’d get a signal from your stomach when it’s filled. It’s a good idea to listen to this signal. Instead of looking at the plate, look at your body first.
fourteen: Choose Drinks with No Sugar
Drinking tea may make you want to add sugar and this can lead to weight gain. It is either you use little sugar or choose honey over it.
