Here are some more tips for cutting calories:

Calorie Restriction

  • If you snack in front of the television — a bad idea to begin with — don't eat from a bag or tub. Transfer a little of the snack to a small bowl.
  • Eat some protein at breakfast, such as an egg or a leftover piece of chicken. Protein at breakfast could reduce your food consumption by 400 calories over the next day and a half, according to one study.
  • Eat at regular times, and don't skip or delay meals by more than 10 minutes. If you wait too long, that famished feeling could cause you to overeat.
