5 Ways to Eliminate Extra Calories

Use skim milk or non-dairy alternatives to milk.

It's no surprise that skim milk contains fewer calories and less fat than whole or 2% milk.

Non-dairy substitutes have even fewer calories. For example, a cup of almond milk has just 90 calories while a cup of 2% milk has almost 140 calories.

Measure out serving sizes.

Take the time to determine the proper serving size for all food items that you consume. Doing this is tedious and annoying, I know.

However, it makes a huge difference and helps you stick to a low calorie vegetarian diet. Check nutrition labels for appropriate serving sizes.

Easy on the cheese.

Cheese is amazing, but is rich in calories and fat. Use less cheese in your vegetarian recipes, even just a little less, and save a lot of calories.

Also, consider using low or non-fat cheese to cut calories from your diet. This is a good idea for low calorie vegetarian recipes that require cheese, such as vegetarian pizza or easy Mexican recipes like quesadillas.

Reach for fruit when you are craving something sweet.

Instead of topping ice cream or yogurt with cookie crumbs or sprinkles, try using some fresh or frozen fruit.

Give into cravings.

This sounds counterintuitive, but there is a lot of evidence that shows how denying yourself a favorite food for too long can result in over indulging later.

Savor a proper portion of any treat when you are in the mood for it.
