You may want or need to decrease your caloric intake for a variety of reasons. Whether you want to lose weight or just get healthier, cutting calories is a simple solution.

Here are some simple ways to consume fewer calories while maintaining a healthy diet:

• The best strategy for cutting calories is to be conscious of food portions. Opt for small or medium sizes when ordering food and add a serving of greens to each meal.
• Choose grilled or steamed foods instead of greasy, fried ones.
• Eat low-density, high-volume foods that contain plenty of water. Fruits and veggies will fill you up without adding excess calories, while high-density foods like nuts or cheese have little water and more calories.
• Read food labels while shopping. If you are conscious of the number of calories you are consuming, you are more equipped to make smart food choices.
• Increase daily physical activity to burn more calories.
• Avoid refined, processed, and canned foods that contain unhealthy additives. Choose fresh, natural foods as they often offer more nutrients with fewer calories.
