3. Make hummus your new favorite condiment.
Next day you have a cooked potato, top it with hummus instead of butter. Dont dismisses this until you have tried it, Keri Gans , RDN, writer of The Small Change Diet, told Fox News .

The bonus is you also get fiber and protein from the chickpeas, Gans added.

The accelerate of music influences how fast we eat, Christy Brissette, MS, RD, proprietor of 80 Twenty Nutrition in Toronto, told Fox News.

5. Vinegar down your salad dressing.
Dilute your favorite salad dressing with balsamic vinegar. Youll pucker up for the intense flavor, while practically slashing your calories in half, Bonnie Taub-Dix , RDN, writer of Read It Before You Feed It told Fox News.
6. Eat fragrant cheese.
Yes, this means you can eat cheese and lose weight! But choose the super flavorful ranges so a little runs a long way, Brissette advised. Try Manchego or Parmesan, so simply a sprinkle adds tons of flavor to your salad or pasta. You wont require those big chunks of cheese you might be seduced to add when using less flavorful versions.
7. Add beans to Bolognese.
I am a die-hard meat fan, but I love to add black beans to a Bolognese so I can reduce the amount of chopped sirloin used, Gans said. This not only cuts calories it also adds health benefits from the beans, like helping to decrease the health risks of heart disease.
8. Mix your drinking differently.
In lieu of tonic water, apply soda water as a mixer for your next drinking. It contains zero calories, whereas tonic water has 124 calories per 12 ounces. This is nearly as much as cola, Ginger Hultin, MS, RDN, proprietor of Champagne Nutrition in Seattle, told Fox News.
