Avoid sauces. They significantly increase the calorie content of any dish. Swap them out for low-fat yogurt or balsamic vinegar.
Replace sodas and packaged juices with water.
Do not abuse fruits. Often giving up sweets and pastries, they try to compensate for this with a large amount of fruits, which can adversely affect the calorie content of the diet and your well-being.
Reduce your sugar intake. Even if you stop adding sugar to coffee or tea, this will already significantly reduce your calories.
Don't skip breakfast. This is an important part of a healthy diet and maintaining a beautiful figure. A great option would be oatmeal or gluten-free oatmeal. More interesting options can be found in our weekly column "Healthy Breakfast"
