If your goal is to cut back on calories, cutting fat is definitely a smart way to go. High-fat foods contain a lot more calories than you’d think, due to the fact that fats contain more than twice the calories found in proteins and carbs (9 calories vs. 4). Cutting back your fat intake can help you to curtail your calorie intake effectively.
Note: Don’t cut back too much on fats, or else you could end up gaining weight. In the long run, it’s carbs that will promote fat/weight gain, not fats. A bit of fat—especially healthy fats like polyunsaturated fat, monounsaturated fat, and even some saturated fat—is vital for a healthy, slim body.

When it comes to “healthy”, you can’t beat a salad! Salads are packed with veggies, which are low in calories but high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. A good salad will fill you up, thanks to the fiber which absorbs water and expands in your stomach.

You can enjoy a bowl of soup before every meal, and you’ll find you’re much less hungry when you get to the main course.

We all want a little something sweet after our meals. Desserts help to shut down our appetites and tell our body that we’ve had enough. But remember that sugar is the enemy of weight loss! If your goal is to get truly fit and lose weight, you need to scale your sugar intake way back—eliminate it completely, if possible.

A good smoothie can be the perfect snack, especially if it’s made with the right ingredients: a balance of protein (from protein powder, milk, or yoghurt), fiber (from oats, seeds, nuts, and fruits), and flavor (from fruits, dark chocolate, or vanilla).
