10 ways to save 100 calories

  1. At breakfast, substitute your morning bagel for an English muffin (those of the whole wheat variety are delicious and fill you up more).
  2. With your eggs, replace four slices of bacon with two slices of ham.
  3. Instead of a croissant, choose two slices of bread.
  4. At your local café, forget about a mochaccino with whipped cream and ask for a large latté sprinkled with cocoa.
  5. Instead of a handful of dry roasted almonds for a snack, half the portion and add an apple.
  6. Craving something salty? Exchange your small bag of chips for two cups of popcorn.
  7. Spread mustard on your sandwiches instead of mayonnaise.
  8. At the mall, order a stir-fry with a half-portion of rice.
  9. Dying for dessert? Opt for a pie with one crust.
  10. Thirsty for a cocktail? Instead of ordinary beer, try a 0.5% beer. Or replace that piña colada with a cosmopolitan.
