Easy Ways to Cut 100 Calories

Want an easy way to lose weight? Burn just 50 calories more and eat 50 calories less each day. Some experts believe that achieving this 100-calorie daily deficit could help you shed 10 pounds in a year. Use these tips to get started.
Burn at Least 50 More Calories a Day by: Walking

Walk briskly for 10 minutes. This burst of activity will put you halfway toward your 100-calorie goal, says Susan Finn, PhD, RD, LD, chairperson of the American Council for Fitness and Nutrition. No time? Instead of a coffee break, take a stroll around your office or around the block.

Step it up. Get a pedometer and track how many steps you take each day. Then find fun ways to up your count by 1,000 for that 50-calorie burn. Walk letters to a mailbox farthest from your house or walk the perimeter of the store before shopping.
