1. Sweeten With Cinnamon Not Sugar
Starting off with one of the most obvious steps any diet requires you to implement. Cutting down on sugar. But what about those sudden sweet cravings? Cinnamon has a hint of sweetness to it which can trick your brain into thinking you are having something sweet and that intense craving will be successfully managed. Sprinkle some cinnamon on porridge or sweet oats for a healthier alternative to sugar.

2. Choose Fresh Fruit Over Dehydrated
Dehydrated fruit is healthy. It’s said to contain as many nutrients as whole fresh fruit. However, if calorie cutting is your aim then dehydrated fruit should be skipped.

3. Sip Seltzer Not Soda
Did you know that a glass of seltzer water with a drop of lemon wedge is zero calories while a can of coke contains 140 calories? If you have been thinking about making the switch to healthy eating, soda is another thing you need to quit. Making the switch to seltzer water will ease up this process and satisfy the cravings for drinking soda.

4. Swap White Pasta For Whole Wheat
Regular white pasta is something you must steer clear of. Stripped of nutrients and made from refined carbs, it adds some serious calories per serving. On the other hand making the switch to whole wheat pasta will prove to be a much more nutritious option. As opposed to white pasta, it contains complex carbs, fiber, protein, zinc and iron.

  1. Parts 4 and 19 are a misconception. If your goal is weight loss, there is not much of a difference in using white pasta vs whole wheat or white bread vs rye bread. The only real difference in weight loss is that whole grains contain a bit more fiber, which takes longer to digest. If you like your refined carbs over whole grain, just eat them. It's not that big of a deal if you just don't overeat.

  2. I’ve been living a high volume/low calorie lifestyle for a month. So far lost 11 pounds
