Last week I went over the first four ways to help you stay permanently slim. They are earth shaking secrets, but they are secrets that only thin people seem to practice.
Today I’m going to give you a few more. Make sure you share them with your friends so they know these secrets as well. Here’s number 5.
5. Coffee saver Instead of pouring that 1/3 cup of half-and-half (a whopping 105 calories!) into your coffee cup, replace it with the same amount of 2% milk or just drink it black. Doing this will save you some extra calories and some extra fat storage. It’s the little things that count. Saves 60
6. Better your bagel You can walk 10,000 steps to justify your 500-calorie bagel with cream cheese, or try this: low-fat spreadable cheese like Laughing Cow Light on an English muffin. That’s if you have to have a bagel. Stay away from grains if you can. Again, if you’re hungry, really hungry, eat a hard boiled egg and drink lots of pH water. Saves 300 calories
7. Tone in traffic Use the time spent bumper-to-bumper to develop your buns of steel: Squeeze your derrière each time you tap the brake, holding for 10 seconds. Shoot for 10 to 15 squeezes a trip. I know that sounds crazy, but hey, if you want buns of steel, or something close to buns of steel, do it. It’ll make your derriere feel and look better and it’ll burn some fat off that backside. Burns 10 calories
8. Snack smarter Portion out the day’s snacks into pint-size zip bags, or buy single-serving portions. For example, four eat raw broccoli or carrots. When you do this it will satisfy your cravings and take that fat off your backside and hips.
