Because, with almost zero additional effort, you can increase your calorie deficit, lose weight, AND lose inches faster, without the extra cravings or hunger to go along with it.
Presenting: My 3 favorite weight loss *and general health* meal tips.
Hint: Pleeease make sure you read to tip #3, and I’ll share with you why I use it 5/7 days a week, almost Every. Single. Week. Time to pull back the curtains to show you how simple & easy these weight loss meal tips are!
Tip #1: Substitute Olive Oils with Olive Oil Spray
Let’s be honest. Olive oil is good. Really good. And, you’re probably thinking – “Hunter, if you make me get rid of olive oil, I’m going drop kick you with my fist.”
Woahhh, let’s not get violent now. No, I won’t make you get rid of your olive oil… not completely, anyways. 😈
“But Hunter, isn’t olive oil healthy?”
Sure it is! There’s a lot of “good stuff” in olive oil… BUT:
If not used sparingly, those olive oil calories will add up like 7 inches of snow in Texas. We’re talking 120 calories per tablespoon. YIKES!
So, I’ve found you a 85%-as-good alternative.
Introducing – Olive Oil spray. *angels singing*
It’s olive oil, but you spray it. AND, even more fantastical, the nutrition label says ZERO calories.
Now, don’t be fooled, because olive oil spray does have calories *arghhh pesky food marketers*. But, it does have a lot less calories than olive oil – and will still make your food taste extra tasty.
In fact, olive oil spray has ~8 calories per second sprayed, so you’d have to spray 15 seconds just to match the calories on olive oil.
No thank you.
Tip #2: Almond Milk Over Dairy Milk
A single cup of whole milk clocks in at around a whopping 150 calories! And, a cup of 1% reduced-fat dairy milk even tips the scale at over 100 calories.
A cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, though, is 30 calories. And, If opinions count, mine is that the almond milk tastes much better – and, as a bonus – you save 70 calories per cup.
The average American drinks ~1.5 cups a day, so there’s at least 105 calories per day that you’re saving (or 775 a week!)
Yes, dairy is a main source of calcium for most people, but did you know…
Silk Almond Milk packs a whopping 450mg of calcium per cup, where the average dairy milk contains ~300mg!
Tip #3: Eat Slaw Salads
My biggest nutrition hack of 2020 was discovering Fresh Express Premium Slaw Salad Kits.
They are satisfying, delicious (I actually crave on a daily basis), and are reasonable on the calories.
For example, the Honey Pecan Salad is 110 calories per serving (275 calories total) and takes about 10 seconds to make.
I’ll eat an entire salad in one sitting, but Melissa, my fiancé will eat it in two (Or I’ll just eat her other half, too 😂)
If you want to lose weight, and have more energy, you want to eat low calorie, high nutrient dense foods as often as possible.
These types of foods promote well-being, and keep you satiated throughout your day.
These salads are a perfect example.
The…The…Tha…Thaat…That’s All Folks!
There you have it! Combining all three of these little-to-no-effort tips will have you eating less total calories, while feeling more full on a daily basis. Follow these tips consistently and you’ll be one step closer to looking and feeling your best!
