Gearing up to slim it down for the warm months? Well, here’s a way to get your body right and get it tight!


It’s that time of year again where people are trying to get their summer bodies in order, but losing weight can be tricky since dieting and working out aren’t always easy (or consistent). However, while we can’t motivate you to get your butt in the gym, we can hook you up with tips on how you can make minor adjustments to your diet that could last a lifetime and save you several calories per year.

Here are eight food substitutions you can make that can help you cut the fat:

Granny Smith Apples For The Candy Junky
Do you constantly crave sugary candy along the lines of sour straws, lollipops, etc? Well, you already know that sugar is the devil. Not only does it rot your teeth but eating it in excess can make you gain weight and put you on the train toward diabetes-ville. Eat a green apple instead (also known as “Granny Smiths”). Not only do green apples provide the same tart sweet taste but apples also offer huge amounts of fiber, which is important for weight loss and have been proven to burn fat. FatFreeKitchen

Greek Yogurt For Sour Cream Addicts
Forget about slathering fatty sour cream on you baked potatoes and tacos. Try plain Greek Yogurt instead. Greek yogurt—the real kind—is typically made of sheep’s milk, but in most parts of the world, the term just refers to any extra thick yogurt, no matter the milk type, where the whey has been strained out. It’s gluten free, safe for diabetics and vegetarians, and with the 2% variety being only 120 calories a cup, it’s perfect for dieters of all kinds. It’s also way more flexible than sour cream. You can eat it for breakfast mixed with honey and granola or even try it in smoothies. You can generally find it in specialty stores like Trader Joe’s and often chain supermarkets like Shop & Stop and PathMark. Don’t trip, it won’t break your bank.
